Little Women has remained enduringly popular since its publication in
1868, becoming the inspiration for a whole genre of family stories.
'set in a small New England community, it tells of the March family
:Marmee looks after daughters in the absence of her husband, who is
serving as an army chaplain in the Civil War, and Meg, Jo,Beth, and
Amy experience domestic trials and triumphs as they attempt to
supplement the family's small income. In the second part of the novel
(sometimes known as Good Wives) the girls grow up and fall in love.
The novel is highly autobiographical, and in Jo's character Alcott
portrays a strong-minded and independent woman, determined to control
her own destiny.
The introduction to this edition provides a fascinating history
of the Alcotts,and of Louisa Alcott's own struggles as a writer.
