BWW Reviews: THE PRIME OF MISS JEAN BRODIE Offers Cautionary Tale About the Power of EducatorsBWW Reviews: THE PRIME OF MISS JEAN BRODIE Offers Cautionary Tale About the Power of Educators
by Frank Benge - Dec 3, 2014

The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie is a 1961 novel by Muriel Spark and a 1966 stage play, based on the novel, by Jay Presson Allen that was turned into a film in 1968. Miss Brodie, a teacher at the Marcia Blaine School for Girls in Edinburgh, states her motto: 'I am in the business of putting old heads on young shoulders, and all my pupils are the creme de la creme. Give me a girl at an impressionable age, and she is mine for life.' Jean Brodie stands as one of theater's most charismatic warpers of young minds; a self-deluded Scottish schoolteacher and a passionate advocate of questionable causes (like Fascism) deemed by most to be subjects unsuitable for children in the 1930's. The story is part of a long line of books and movies about forward-thinking and eccentric teachers who have a great deal of influence on their students. Set against the backdrop of fascism and the Spanish Civil War, the story is told through a series of flashbacks. (more...)
