Under the deceptively-shallow guise of a novel of manners and morals for young ladies lies a powerful anthem to freedom and zest for life that will not fail to win the hearts of readers of all kinds. The timeless story of four brave, independent sisters who fight to carve a space for themselves in the society of their day has been a source of inspiration to entire generations and continues to influence and entertain readers up to this day.

Author Biography

Louisa May Alcott grew up in poverty and was educated by several well-known friends of her father such as Henry David Thoreau and Ralph Waldo Emerson. She was a dedicated defender of women#&39;s rights and towards the end of her life she was also abolitionist. Her best-known work, Little Women, is based on an idealized version of her own family life, and Jo March#&39;s character is somewhat autobiographical although, unlike her character, Louisa May Alcott herself never married or had children.
