Little Women

Little Women, by Louisa May Alcott, is one of the most beloved novels of the nineteenth century. The historical context of the novel and a discussion of Alcott’s life are key to understanding the story of four young women coming of age in post-Civil War New England. The novel had been adapted for film three times: in 1933, 1949, and 1994. Gillian Armstrong’s 1994 version differs greatly from its predecessors in its treatment of historical events and feminism.
