Louisa May Alcott's beloved novel, "Little Women", has captivated generations of readers young and old. First published in 1868, the story follows the lives of the four March sisters—Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy—growing up in a small New England town during the Civil War. With their distinct personalities and aspirations, these sisters embody the trials and tribulations of adolescence, the importance of family, and the enduring power of friendship.

The Characters

  • Meg March, the eldest sister, is a beautiful and kind-hearted young woman who dreams of a wealthy future and a handsome husband. Her primary interests are fashion, music, and socializing.
  • Jo March, the second sister, is a strong-willed and independent tomboy with a passion for writing. She is the author of the family's plays and aspires to become a famous author one day.
  • Beth March, the third sister, is a gentle and musical spirit who is devoted to her family and spends much of her time caring for her ailing mother.
  • Amy March, the youngest sister, is a talented artist with a vain and selfish streak. She dreams of becoming a great painter and traveling the world.

The Setting

The story of "Little Women" is set in the small town of Concord, Massachusetts, during the Civil War. The March family's home is a modest but comfortable house where the sisters spend their days with their mother, Marmee, and their cat, Snowdrop. The town is a close-knit community where the Marches are well-respected and loved.
