Little Women

Servant But she soon discovered she could make money writing Little Women brought her lasting fame and fortune and far from being the girl’s book” her publisher reuested 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 Ameri. I hated this bookI can t even begin to go into all the reasons I dislike this novel It s dull and preachy through out most of it aside from Jo who is a truly inspired character But everyone else seems one note most of the chapters come off as morality plays than solid scenes or plots And just when Miss Alcott has something seemingly interesting she breaks it for no other reason than to do somethingWhether its the pairing of Amy and Laurie huh the point made CONSTANTLY that Beth s life isn t useless because she is an angel and showed them that angels do exist and is a total Mary SueReally Cause I m glad she died before I died of boredom the forced pairing of Jo and the Professor Why I mean really Just keep her single there is also the message that pursing art is selfish Jo giving up her writing Laurie gives up his music Amy gives up her sketching It s not a message I expected this book is always lauded as one that has inspired countless girls To do what Because outside of Jo s sipirt I dont really see much to aspire to in this tsory The overall message seems to be that as a good Christian one should sacrifice being an artist being in love with who you want and any hope of independence It s not because I m from the modern era that I dislike this book Or that I m an adult reading it If you look at other works being done in the same time period you will see that there were stories with less moralizing being done including by Miss Alcott herself I was just really disappointed

Summary Ï PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ´ Louisa May Alcott

Generations of readers young and old male and female have fallen in love with the March sisters of Louisa May Alcott’s most popular and enduring novel Little Women 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. Yes yes I AM a grown ass man reading this but I m not even remotely ashamed What I tried to do here was dispel the extra melodrama embrace the cut outs fat trimmed out of the Winona Ryder film I was on the hunt for all the new ha stuff that the regular person well informed of the plot involving four young girls growing up or in the case of Beth not never even knew existed But it seems that the film did a great job not adding many scenes than direly needed like the Byrne Ryder night at the opera scene it explains why she doesn t choose Laurie after all nor taking indispensable scenes from the century a half old novel to the cutting room floor Alas there s a good reason why Entertainment Weekly once decreed that the film was a great comfort to all post 911 victims The story has no great battles to speak of no violence no terrible disasters The minutiae is symbolic of fragile domestic existences important very fun to read about this coming from a Bridget and Carrie Bradshaw fan of course Little Women is at its core all about Old School American values such as temperance forgiveness hard work It has astute lessons aplenty to rival even old Aesopus himself Laurie and Amy have the best lines there are plenty of groans amidst cute vignettes and harsh but necessary life lessons for Americans and non alike This is relevant today so than On the Road or other so called uintessential American classics that s a genuine plus This one stands as outstanding soap opera theatrics woven intelligently with American history herself Good stuff like a wise mentor of American Lit would say Also mega appropriate for the season

review Little Women

During the Civil WarIt 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. Old books get a bad rapbut do they deserve it Check out my latest BooktTube Video all about the fabulous and not so fabulous Olde Boies The Written Review Don t try to make me grow up before my time The March sisters may be radically different but they all have one thing in common love Their love for their mother and father their love for adventure and for each other unites them in this troubled timeThe Civil War is afoot and all the sisters can do is think about their father away and in battle Their mother tries to distract them but often she can barely distract herself Jo a radical tomboy and aspiring author rallies her family with her amusing plays and scribbles I like good strong words that mean something Meg the beautiful sister often puts her family first and holds them together when her mother cannot You don t need scores of suitors You need only one if he s the right one Amy the youngest was spoiled as a child and oh my it shows But even she can rally when life looks darkest I d rather take coffee than compliments just now Beth sweet and good natured valiantly cheers on her sisters but her frail health often keeps her at the sidelines There are many Beths in the world shy and uiet sitting in corners till needed and living for others so cheerfully that no one sees the sacrifices till the little cricket on the hearth stops chirping The sisters must face hardships their New England home They must face things that they never would have thought possibleBut even in the darkest of times they will have each other And that is most important of all Watch and pray dear never get tired of trying and never think it is impossible to conuer your fault This is probably my fifth or sixth time through and yes I am totally going to read it again There s just something about this book that s absolutely gorgeous and timelessI love the sisters and their relationships with each other I see so much of myself and my cousins with their day to day interactionsJo the darling is the perfect mix of strength and fear Watching her grow from a brash girl to confident young woman just makes my heart happy You are the gull Jo strong and wild fond of the storm and the wind flying far out to sea and happy all alone And the message of the book Ahh My heart So fullIt often feels like the messages from books in the mid 1800s are saccharine sweet or so heavy handed with their themes that they re ridiculous Just look at the later Anne of Green Gables if you d like an exampleBut this one had just the right mixture of loving family religion life lessons It was beautifully balanced Be worthy love and love will come That being said I do absolutely hate that view spoiler Beth has to die hide spoiler
