    Four sisters sit in the parlor waiting for their adored mother to come home. But it was Alcott's genius to fill the didactic frame of a girls' book with her ambition-with disturbing ideas, anger, and frustration as well as her father's inspiring and impossible striving for moral perfection, to which her mother provided a humane antidote. And why should she have? The Library of America series includes more than volumes to date, authoritative editions that average 1, pages in length, feature cloth covers, sewn bindings, and ribbon markers, and are printed on premium acid-free paper that will last for centuries. In Little Women, volatile Jo has to do most of the brave fighting; she is physical, kindhearted, passionate, hungry for the world, and always, as she says, "getting into scrapes.

    Now her father, in an effort to drum up some work for her, suggested to Niles that Louisa could write him a book of fairy stories. Her friends Harriet Martineau and Thomas Carlyle had encountered Bronson, and both thought him a fool. She will not write. But Ralph Waldo Emerson believed in him.

She gave me the courage of a new goal, and soon I was crafting little stories and spinning long yarns for my brother and sister.

Little Men by Alcott, First Edition

Carefully controlling their environment to exclude all influences they deemed harmful, Bronson and his wife, Abigail, tried to give their children an ideal—if highly scrutinized—upbringing, exhorting them to resist every selfish impulse and to indulge every creative one.

In life, the family-Bronson and his wife, Abigail May, and their four daughters, Anna, Louisa, Elizabeth, and May-built a precarious fortress of love, duty, and pride around themselves.

Despite worsening health, Alcott wrote through the rest of her life, finally succumbing to the aftereffects of mercury poisoning contracted during her Civil War service she had received calomel treatments for the effects of typhoid.

But Jo had to marry somebody. The shame and guilt this method induced, he believed, was far superior to the fear instilled by corporal punishment; when he used physical "correction" he required that the students be unanimously in support of its application, even including the student to be punished.

Elizabeth Peabody, a formidable intellect at the center of the Transcendentalist movement and the eldest of the Peabody sisters, taught with Bronson and wrote a popular book about the school.

But even when I was ten, I imagined her perched in the branches of an apple tree, watching. A reviewer of Eclectic Magazine called it "the very best of books to reach the hearts of the young of any age from six to sixty".

The Alcotts did not separate. She died in Boston on March 6,two days after visiting her father on his deathbed. I read it 18 times, and I-along with most readers-was Jo, the tomboy with literary ambition.

Their works were, as one newspaper columnist of the period commented, "among the decided 'signs of the times'". On January 14,the Alcotts received a telegram that Louisa was sick; Bronson immediately went to bring her home, briefly meeting Abraham Lincoln while there.

She was not on the ground herding toddlers; she was aloft gathering fiction. In the family housed a fugitive slave for one week, and in Alcott read and admired the "Declaration of Sentiments" published by the Seneca Falls Convention on women's rights.

Louisa May Alcott

Louisa's grave in Sleepy Hollow Cemetery in Concord is well visited. The novel records the anguish of Louisa's struggle to control her impatience and rash temper-a struggle she shared with her mother. Thus have we striven, and in vain; and this night our Queen holds council for the last time.
