Portrait

Louisa May Alcott was born in Germantown, Pennsylvania, in 1832, and grew up in Concord, Massachusetts. She was the second of four daughters of Abba May and Bronson Alcott, a prominent transcendentalist thinker and social reformer whose idealistic preoccupations caused him to neglect his family's practical needs. Louisa began to shoulder her family's financial burdens at a young age--as a domestic, as a teacher, and as a writer, producing everything from sketches of her Civil War nursing experiences to pseudonymous, lurid thrillers. Fame and fortune came with the publication of "Little Women" in 1868-1869, a novel based upon her childhood experiences. This was followed by other books in the "Little Women" Series, all of them enormously popular: "An Old-Fashioned Girl" in 1870, "Little Men" in 1871, "Eight Cousins" in 1875, its sequel, "Rose in Bloom," in 1876, "Under the Lilacs" in 1878, "Jack and Jill" in 1880, and finally, in 1886, "Jo's Boys," the sequel to "Little Men." Among her other books was the autobiographical novel "Work: A Story of Experience "in 1873. She was active in the women's suffrage and temperance movements until her death in 1888. John Matteson holds doctoral degrees from Harvard and Columbia Universities. He is a professor of English at John Jay College of Criminal Justice in New York City and is deputy director of the Leon Levy Center for Biography. Matteson is the author of "The Lives of Margaret Fuller" and "Eden""'s Outcasts: The Story of Louisa May Alcott and Her Father." For the latter book, he was awarded the 2008 Pulitzer Prize for Biography. J. T. Barbarese is the author of three books of poems, including "A Very Small World," and a translation of Euripedes' "The Children of Heracles." His poems have appeared in "The Atlantic Monthly, Boulevard, The Georgia Review, The Denver Quarterly, The Cortland Review "and" Poetry," and his literary journalism in numerous publications, from "The Journal of Modern Literature" to "the New York Times." He is an assistant professor of English and creative writing at Rutgers University, where he teaches graduate and undergraduate courses in poetry, fiction, playwriting, Romanticism and children's literature.
