Louisa May Alcott’s beloved stories of the fictional March family were inspired by both her own experiences growing up in nineteenth century Concord, Massachusetts, and her contact with noted literary figures like Henry David Thoreau, Ralph Waldo Emerson, and Nathaniel Hawthorne.
Little Women is the coming of age story of the four March sisters—Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy—who experience great joy and tragic loss while becoming the true little women of the title. The March sisters return in Little Men, in which Jo and her husband, Professor Bhaer’s school at Plumfield is home to a bevy of rambunctious boys who manage what they never thought possible: growing up to be real little men.
