Timeless in its evocation of idealised family life and robustly enduring, Little Women is recognised as one of the best-loved classic children's stories of all time. Originally written as a 'girls' story', its appeal transcends the boundaries of time and age, making it as popular with adults as it is with young readers.
Louisa May Alcott was born in Pennsylvania in 1832, the second of four daughters to the philosopher Amos Bronson Alcott, and she died in 1888 at the age of fifty-six. She was educated at home and went on to become a schoolteacher in Boston. Her first book, Flower Fables, was published when she was twenty-two, but she interrupted her career as a writer to nurse soldiers at a Washington hospital during the Civil War. Her most enduring book, Little Women, was published in 1868, and was an instant success. Her other books include Little Men and Jo's Boys.
