MetadataShow full item record
Author of the novel Little Women, or Chronicle of the March Family (Little Women, or chronicle of the March family, 1868), considered a classic of children's literature, read and loved by young and adults around the world, Louisa May Alcott (1832-1888) stands out in the vast literature of the second half of the nineteenth century. The author tells the story of the March family, very similar but perhaps more conventional than the true story of the Alcott family. The four paths of these little women, so different from the existential tone, symbolize the feminine metaphors of growth. In fact, the chronicle of the March family, may be included in the shelf of the Bildungsroman.
