About the book
Little Women was first published in two parts in 1868 and 1869 – in England the second part was called Good Wives. It was originally written as a girls’ story, but it has always been enjoyed by adults as well as children. The story of the ‘little women’, the March sisters, was based on the experiences of the four Alcott sisters, and Louisa Alcott cultivated the idea that it was highly autobiographical. Louisa certainly had a great deal in common with Jo March, her independent – spirited heroine. When it was first published Little Women was an immediate success. Jo March remains ‘one of the classic characters of popular-cum- nursery culture, up there with Sherlock Holmes and Little Miss Muffett’ (Brigid Brophy). She struggles against a society where all the best rewards were reserved for boys. What could have been ‘a Victorian moral tract, sentimental and preachy, was written by a secret rebel against the order of the world and women’s place in it, and all the girls who ever read it know it’.
