Summary
A great starting point for students seeking an introduction to Louisa May Alcott and the critical discussions surrounding her work. A 19th century American novelist of the transcendentalist school, Louisa May Alcott is most renowned for Little Women, a coming-of-age children's tale still popular with readers of all ages today. Essays in this volume take a closer look at Alcott, her beliefs, and her work in Little Women and its two sequels, Little Men and Jo's Boys. Each essay is 2,500 to 5,000 words in length, and all essays conclude with a list of "Works Cited", along with endnotes. Finally, the volume's appendices offer a section of useful reference resources. -- Amazon
