9780140390919: Work (Penguin Classics)

Moving away from the family setting of her best-known works, Louisa May Alcott explores both her own personal conflicts as a woman, as well as those experienced by her contemporaries in the unemancipated 19th century. Social justice and women's work are the central themes of this novel.

Product Description:

A story about a nineteenth-century woman's search for a meaningful life through work outside the family sphere, Work is at once Alcott's exploration of her personal challenges and a social critique of America.

About the Author:

Louisa May Alcott was both an abolitionist and a feminist. She is best known for Little Women (1868), a semiautobiographical account of her childhood years with her sisters in Concord, Massachusetts. Alcott, unlike Jo, never married: ""...because I have fallen in love with so many pretty girls and never once the least bit with any man."" She was an advocate of women's suffrage and was the first woman to register to vote in Concord, Massachusetts.
