Louisa May Alcott was an important nineteenth century American author who contributed a literary perspective on women more influential than anyone else’s perspective from her era. She lived among an established literary circle of transcendentalists, and received praise and lessons from the likes of Ralph Waldo Emerson, Margaret Fuller, and Henry David Thoreau. She was a staunch feminist and abolitionist, spending as much time advocating for social change as she did writing. Her most famous work is without question Little Women, a loosely autobiographical novel about four sisters during their formative years. It takes aspects of children’s literature and sentimental novels to create an early example of young adult literature, one that has remained popular with children and adults for well over a century. This edition by the Easton Press is a fantastic representation of the work. It contains Henry Pitz’s terrific illustrations.
