Louisa May Alcott (1832-1888) was an American novelist and poet best known as the author of the novel Little Women and its sequels Little Men and Jo's Boys. Raised by her transcendentalist parents, she grew up among many of the well-known intellectuals of the day such as Ralph Waldo Emerson, Nathaniel Hawthorne, and Henry David Thoreau. Little Women is loosely based on Alcott's childhood experiences with her three sisters.
The Feminist Alcott: Stories of a Woman's Powerby Louisa May Alcott, Madeline B. Stern
The beloved juvenile writer's anonymous and pseudonymous sensation stories were first discovered decades ago by the literary sleuthing of Madeleine Stern and Leona Rostenberg. Now Stern, a recognized Alcott scholar, has selected four thrillers that illuminate Alcott's feminist convictions. These engaging potboilers feature the power struggle between the sexes and colorful, passionate heroines who, ranging from thwarted and abused victims to triumphant conquerors, will beguile a new audience of modern readers.
