Here are talented tomboy and author-to-be Jo, tragically frail Beth, beautiful Meg, and romantic, spoiled Amy, united in their devotion to each other and their struggles to survive in New England during the Civil War. &&L/P&&R&&LP style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt"&&R &&L/P&&RIt is no secret that Alcott based Little Women on her own early life. While her father, the freethinking reformer and abolitionist Bronson Alcott, hobnobbed with such eminent male authors as Emerson, Thoreau, and Hawthorne, Louisa supported herself and her sisters with "woman''s work," including sewing, doing laundry, and acting as a domestic servant. But she soon discovered she could make more money writing. &&LI&&RLittle Women&&L/I&&R brought her lasting fame and fortune, and far from being the "girl''s book" her publisher requested, it explores such timeless themes as love and death, war and peace, the conflict between personal ambition and family responsibilities, and the clash of cultures between Europe and America.&&L/DIV&&R&&LDIV&&R &&L/DIV&&R&&LDIV&&R&&LDIV&&R&&LB&&RCamille Cauti&&L/B&&R, Ph.D., is an editor and literary critic who lives in New York City. She is a specialist in the Catholic conversion trend among members of the avant-garde in London in the 1890s.&&L/DIV&&R&&L/DIV&&R&&L/DIV&&R
