Louisa May Alcott

Louisa May Alcott was an American novelist and poet best known as the author of the novel Little Women (1868) and its sequels Little Men (1871) and Jo's Boys (1886). Raised by her transcendentalist parents, Abigail May and Amos Bronson Alcott in New England, she also grew up among many of the well-known intellectuals of the day such as Ralph Waldo Emerson, Nathaniel Hawthorne, and Henry David Thoreau.

Alcott's family suffered financial difficulties, and while she worked to help support the family from an early age, she also sought an outlet in writing. She began to receive critical success for her writing in the 1860s. Early in her career, she sometimes used the pen name A. M. Barnard, under which she wrote novels for young adults.

Published in 1868, Little Women is set in the Alcott family home, Hillside, later called the Wayside, in Concord, Massachusetts and is loosely based on Alcott's childhood experiences with her three sisters. The novel was very well received and is still a popular children's novel today, filmed several times.

Alcott was an abolitionist and a feminist and remained unmarried throughout her life. She died in Boston on March 6, 1888.

“It is only an­other name for try­ing to be good, and the story may help us; for though we do want to be good, it’s hard work, and we for­get, and don’t do our best.”

Money is a need­ful and pre­cious thing—and, when well used, a no­ble thing—but I never want you to think it is the first or only prize to strive for. I’d rather see you poor men’s wives, if you were happy, beloved, con­tented, than queens on thrones, with­out self-re­spect and peace.”

for to be independent and earn the praise of those she loved were the dearest wishes of her heart, and this seemed to be the first step toward that happy end

🐼Adorable

Книга неторопливая, оптимистичная, залитая солнцем и превозносящаяся честный труд над богатством. Под конец от такой сладкой жизни у меня осталось ощущение патоки, как будто в этом бесконечном счастье героинь нет глубины. Хотя читать ее на контрасте с московской зимой и безысходностью было приятно. Потраченного времени не жаль, но если бы история была в 2 раза короче по объему было бы лучше.
