Famous Women---L

 


Our famous L is :

Louisa May Alcott (1832-1888)




Quick facts:

American Author and
Poet.

In her early writing career,
she used the pen name A.M.
Barnard. Under this name she
wrote novels for young adults.

Known best for her novels;

Little Women or Meg, Jo,
Beth and Amy. This story
was set in the Alcott home
and followed the sisters
through childhood
Good Wives-followed the
sisters into adulthood and
marriage.
Sequels:
Little Men--Portrayed Jo's life
at Plumfield School-the school
that Jo and her husband founded
Jo's Boys-completed the "March
family story"

She based the character of Jo
on herself except Jo married
and she did not.

In her early years she received
instruction from:
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Nathaniel Hawthorne
Henry David Thoreau

She was a feminist
An abolitionist
A spinster


Alcott passed away at 51 from
a stroke.


I learned some things about her
I did not know and I hop you do
too.


Tomorrow will introduce you to
Famous M.
