Darger's Brave Little Girls (Clip 5 of 6)

Henry Darger had a difficult childhood that influenced his views on good and evil. The second clip associated with the In the Realms of the Unreal: Good and Evil lesson plan demonstrate Darger's faith in Christianity and in the bravery of little girls. These are Darger's forces of "good" who do battle against the forces of "evil." Students should consider what may have motivated Darger to devote so many years of writing and art-making to the subject of good and evil.
