Her father’s transcendentalist (see TRANSCENDENTALISM) inclinations drew to the family such friends as Ralph Waldo Emerson and Henry David Thoreau, but little income. When Alcott’s mother, the more practical Abba May Alcott, founded an employment agency in Boston in order to provide for her family, Louisa and her sisters also sought whatever work was available to 19th-century women—household servant, teacher, governess, seamstress—but Louisa was also writing. Her brief experience as a CIVIL WAR nurse resulted in the novel Hospital Sketches (1863), which ﬁrst gained her substantial public attention and encouraged her to publish Moods the following year.
Alcott herself never married, and whether she is promoting individual career choices for her women in Little Women or in Jo’s Boys (1886), depicting the struggles of women limited by society in Moods and Work, or raging against those limitations in darker works such as “Behind a Mask” (subtitled “A Woman’s Power”), her commitment to choice is as clear as her understanding of how to present that THEME to each particular audience. Fascinating female characters, perceptive depictions of motherdaughter relationships, multithreaded PLOT structures, and realistic detail and dialogue in her work still bring 19th-century New England to life for modern readers.
