Little Women is a coming-of-age novel by Louisa May Alcott originally published in two volumes in 1868 and 1869.
The story follows the lives of the four March sisters—Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy—and details their passage from childhood to womanhood. It is loosely based on the lives of the author and her three sisters.
This wonderful novel takes place in an atmosphere of realism in Civil War America, telling the story of four sisters, from childhood to youth, who, together with their mother, Mrs. March, will confront the difficulties that life shows them.
Through each character you can get to know the experiences and difficulties that they have to endure to advance in their lives and in their maturity. Thus creating a beautiful story that links the deep love of the family, the growth of some women as individual beings, not typical of the time, since the mentality of that time was the Puritan romantic ideal, while questioning various aspects of the American Civil War.
The book has a global impact and has been translated into multiple languages. It has also been adapted many times for the theater and, above all, for the cinema, with 7 films based on the novel having been made.
