Book Report on Little Women by Louisa May Alcott :: Louisa May Alcott, Little Women
In 1868, Louisa may Alcott wrote the book Little Women inresponse to a publishers request for a girls book. Louisa wrotethis book by calling upon her own memories of her childhood and puttingthem floor on paper. This is the story of four young girls, Meg, Jo, Beth,and Amy March, and how they endure all the hurt and hardships that comealong during their lives. They are raised by their mother and by theirfather, and many interesting characters pop up along the way, such asLaurie, their skinny-natured next- admission neighbor Laurie later falls in lovewith Jo just now ends up marrying Amy. In the beginning of the story they areall somewhat young, the youngest being twelve years old, and their mother,whom they call Marmee, is left to guide them epoch their father is awayfighting in the war. As they grow and mature, they nobble many hardlessons about life. For instance, there was the time when Amy, theyoungest, suffered her first penalization in school. She carries thatang er, humility, and embarrassment with her for the rest of her life. There were also more in force(p) lessons to be well-educated, like when wiz of thesisters, Beth, dies. By the end of the book, they really pass on turned fromlittle women into real women.Jo was the second oldest of the four sisters. Her birth pull in wasJosephine, but she always thought that it sounded too feminine, so sheshortened it to Jo. Clearly, Jo was one of the main characters of thestory because many of the events centered on her and the audience learnedmore about who she was. She was a tomboy at heart and detested all the primand proper ways of the ladies in those days. Jo was very outspoken in herspeaking and always said exactly what was on her mind. However, almostpeople felt right at ease speaking with her because she had a way ofmaking them feel comfortable, despite her frankness. Jo was the one whofirst had full courage to go over to the frightening house next door andtalk with the Laure nce Boy, whom they knew as Laurie after that, andbecame the best of friends with him. Despite that one good trait, Jo hasan uncontrollable temper that can erupt at any time. This is sort ofevident one day when Amy burns one of Jos most wanted items-a book thatshe wrote stories in and had for years.
