Louisa May Alcott könyvei a rukkolán

Louisa May Alcott - Kisasszonyok
A ​March család négy lánya - Meg, Jo, Beth és Amy - számára nehéz idők járnak. Édesapjuk az amerikai polgárháborúban szolgál, anyjuk otthon igyekszik elfogadható életet teremteni. Sok megpróbáltatást és jó pár örömteli fordulatot végigélve, a lányokból igazi kisasszonyok válnak a történet végére.

Louisa May Alcott - Fiatalurak
A ​Plumfield kísérleti fiúiskolájában a kis nebulók lényegében azt csinálhatják, amihez kedvük van, akár a lépcsőkorláton is csúszkálhatnak. Jo Bhaer írónő, akit a Kisasszonyokban még Jo March-ként ismertünk, mindig is erről álmodott: egy olyan házról, amelyben "nyüzsögnek a fiúk...és pezseg az élet". A Kisasszonyok azzal zárult, hogy Jo megörökölte a Plumfield birtokot a házsártos, de aranyszívű March nénitől, ahol most már férjével, Bhaer professzorral vállvetve, a maguk elvei szerint, és rengeteg szeretettel nevelgetik a gondjaikba vett rakoncátlan csemetéket. Ahogy Jo maga mondja, "nem is tudom, mit szeretek jobban: az írást vagy a kölykeimet". Nat, a rongyos árva, az elkényeztetett Gömböc, a vadóc Dan és a Plumfield többi feledhetetlen lakója olvasók nemzedékeit bűvölte már el kalandjaival.

Louisa May Alcott - Jo ​fiai
Louisa ​May Alcott családregényének, a Kisasszonyoknak befejező része a felnőtté válás nehézségeiről, csábításokról, tévutakról és tapasztalatokról egyaránt szól. Hála az öreg Mr. Laurence örökségének, tíz évvel az alapítás után továbbra is fogadja a diákokat és Jo Bhaer kísérleti iskolája főiskolává növi ki magát. A régi növendékek ifjakká, illetve bájos és céltudatos fiatal hölgyekké serdültek, akik a maguk útját járják a nagyvilágban. Ám egy fiatalnak ugyanannyi gondja akad, mint egy gyereknek, az élet komoly akadályokat gördít a fiatalok elé, akik mind ezek ellenére maradnak, akik mindig is voltak, Jo March fiai.

Louisa May Alcott - Short ​Stories
Before ​she wrote Little Women - one of the most popular books for children ever written - Louisa May Alcott (1832–1888) served during the Civil War as a volunteer nurse in Washington, D.C. Drawing on that episode in her life, she produced Hospital Sketches, a fictionalized account of her experiences at the military hospital in Georgetown. This collection of five poignant short stories contains two pieces from Hospital Sketches, published in 1863: "Obtaining Supplies," recounting the obstacles Alcott's fictionalized persona, Tribulation Periwinkle, faced in gaining her independence and getting to Washington; and "A Night," a moving account of her encounter with a dying soldier. Also included are "My Contraband," a gripping tale of vengeance involving a Civil War nurse, her Confederate patient and his former slave; "Happy Women," a fictionalized essay about four "spinsters" with a positive attitude toward their marital status; and "How I Went Out to Service," an autobiographical sketch of a young woman's undaunted pursuit of financial independence. Rich in their simple eloquence, these stories provide revealing glimpses of the concerns and literary techniques of one of America's most admired authors.

Louisa May Alcott - May ​Flowers
Boston ​girls, of course they got up a clul) for mental improvement, and, as they were all descendants of the Pilgrim Fathers, they called it the May Flower Club. A very good ,name, and the six young girls who were mem bers of it made a very pretty posy when they met together, once a week, to sew, and read well-chosen books. At the first meeting of the season, after being separated all summer, there was a good deal of gossip to be attended to before the question, What shall we read? came up for serious discussion. Anna Winslow, as president, began by pro posing Happy Dodd; but a chorus of Ive read it! made her turn to her list for another title. Prisoners of Poverty is all about workingwomen, very true and very sad; but Mamma said it might do us good to know something of the hard times other girls have, said A nna, soberly; for she was a thoughtful creature, very anxious to do her duty in all ways.

Louisa May Alcott - Moods
"Like ​her later works for children, Alcott's first novel is well and imaginatively written, highly moralistic, unlikely, and moving." --The Antioch Review Moods, Louisa May Alcott's first novel, was published in 1864, four years before the best-selling Little Women. The novel unconventionally presents a "little woman," a true-hearted abolitionist spinster, and a fallen Cuban beauty, their lives intersecting in Alcott's first major depiction of the "woman problem." Sylvia Yule, the heroine of Moods, is a passionate tomboy who yearns for adventure. The novel opens as she embarks on a river camping trip with her brother and his two friends, both of whom fall in love with her. These rival suitors, close friends, are modeled on Ralph Waldo Emerson and Henry David Thoreau. Aroused, but still "moody" and inexperienced, Sylvia marries the wrong man. In the rest of the novel, Alcott attempts to resolve the dilemma she has created and leaves her readers asking whether, in fact, there is a place for a woman such as Sylvia in a man's world. In 1882, eighteen years after the original publication, Alcott revised and republished the novel. Her own literary success and the changes she helped forge in women's lives now allowed her heroine to meet, as Alcott said, "a wiser if less romantic fate than in the former edition." This volume contains the complete text of the 1864 Moods and Alcott's revisions for the 1882 version, along with explanatory notes by the editor. Sarah Elbert is a professor of history at the State University of New York, Binghamton. She is the author of A Hunger for Home: Louisa May Alcott's Place in American Culture (Rutgers University Press, 1987).

Louisa May Alcott - Little ​Women / Good Wives / Little Men
In _Little ​Women_ when we first meet the family, they are very poor and Mr March is far away in the army. Meg, the eldest, is sixteen when the story begins. Jo is fifteen, "tall, thin and brown", her hair is her one beauty. Beth, at thirteen, is shy and peaceful, rarely disturbed, while Amy, the youngest, is rather vain, and, in her own opinion, "a most important person". As the story develops we enjoy reading about the way the girls enjoy their lives in spite of their poverty; they meet 'the boy next door', who becomes a great friend, and his tutor Mr Brooke. _Good Wives_ begins with a wedding, the war is over, and the March family has changed, but is still together. By the end of this book we have seen Meg coping with her own home and the birth of her children. Jo has been to New York where she meets Professor Bhaer. Amy, too, marries. _Little Men_ shows how the girls' families develop, how their lives change and how, in particular, Jo and her professor have their hearts' desire and run 'Plumfield', the boys' school where we meet Nat, Dan and many other characters. The end of the trilogy shows the March Family much extended but happy and content with its destiny. The harvest is a good one.

Louisa May Alcott - Egy ​régimódi lány
Volt ​egyszer egy Amerika, benne egy gazdag család, s a családnak egy szép, szegény vendége. A lányban annyi az erő, a természetesség, a báj, hogy a könyv minden szereplőjének életét attól kezdve ez az erő, természetesség és báj irányítja. Akkor is, amikor életsorsok veszedelmeiből és szerelmek vidám szövevényeiből kell végül mindennek jóra fordulnia. Még mi, olvasók is e lánynak köszönhetjük, hogy megismerhetjük ezt az egyszervolt Amerikát. Polly csinos, életvidám teremtés, aki a kor nőeszményével szemben a tevékeny, saját sorsát alakító, másokon mindig segíteni kész új nőtípust testesíti meg. Egyik pillanatról a másikra robban be az előkelő és felszínes új angliai társasági életbe, és a maga állhatatos, mégis derűs és bájos lényével számos barátot szerez. A tisztes szegénység, a munka és a szeretet megingathatatlan erények számára, amelyeket még a legelvetemültebb ficsúrban vagy rongyrázó kisasszonyban is megtalál. A már-már idilli környezetbe egy másik, kíméletlenebb világ hírnökei érkeznek - és a váratlanul betoppanó szerelem -, így a gazdag baráti család anyagi összeomlása után Pollynak immár azért is küzdenie kell, hogy a viharban összegabalyodott szerelmi szálak újra egybefonódjanak. Louisa May Alcott, a nagy sikerű Kisasszonyok szerzője, ebben a könyvében a 19. századi Amerika értékeit egyedülálló női szemszögből ragadja meg, amit egyszerre jellemez a szárnyaló romantika és a földön járó derű. Alcott is egy igazi fiús vadóc volt. "Egy fiú se lehetett a barátom, amíg le nem győztem őt valamilyen versenyben. És olyan lányokkal nem barátkoztam, akik nem tudtak fára mászni, vagy átugrani a kerítésen" - írta Louisa saját magáról. A szerző különleges egyénisége és karaktere írásain is átsugárzik. A Manó Könyvek gondozásában végre most a teljes, eredeti szöveg bravúros fordítása jelenik meg. Ajánljuk mindenkinek, aki kedveli L. M. Montgomery és Jane Austen írásait. És az ő lányaiknak, anyukáiknak.

Louisa May Alcott - Little ​Women / Good Wives
Little ​Women is one of the best-loved children's stories of all time, based on the author's own youthful experiences. It describes the family life of the four March sisters living in a small New England community, Meg, the eldest, is pretty and wishes to be a lady; Jo, at fifteen is ungainly and unconventional with an ambition to be an author; Beth is a delicate child of thirteen with a taste for music and Amy is a blonde beauty of twelve. The story of their domestic adventures, their attempts to increase the family income, their friendship with the neighbouring Lawrence family, and their later love affairs remains as fresh and beguiling as ever.

Louisa May Alcott - The ​Selected Letters of Louisa May Alcott
The ​Selected Letters of Louisa May Alcott contains a broad cross-section of letters from the correspondence of the creator of Little Women and provides a compelling autobiography of this most autobiographical of writers. Spanning a period of forty-five years, this collection provides vivid accounts of Alcott's life and development as a writer. Episodes in Alcott's life are candidly reflected: her youth, when the prototype of Jo March was already being shaped; the 1868 publication of Little Women and the prosperity and renown the book brought its author; her never-ending struggles for her family; the final years spent caring for her niece and an invalid father. Alcott's letters also furnished a vent for the pressures she felt to write a sequel to Little Women and play matchmaker for the novel's heroine. Writing to a friend in early 1869, Alcott remarked that "Jo should have remained a literary spinster but so many enthusiastic young ladies wrote to me clamorously demanding that she should marry Laurie, or somebody, that I didnt dare to refuse & out of perversity went & made a funny match for her. I expect vials of wrath to be poured out upon my head, but rather enjoy the prospect." The correspondence sheds light on Alcott's relationship with her publishers, such friends as Emerson and Thoreau, and members of her family. Of particular note are her observations―many of them firsthand―on such major issues of the day as abolition, the Civil War, and the women's rights movement.

A tiszta lelkű Rose nem csupán egy természetközeli életformát tapasztal meg új otthonában, de az élet apró leckéin keresztül a szeretet, az önfeláldozás és a hála iskoláját is elvégzi, mégpedig kiváló eredménnyel. A kislány emberi tapasztalatait gazdagítják az aggodalmaskodó, a hiú, a borúlátó, a nagylelkű vagy az idős kora ellenére is friss gondolkodású nagynénik is. És ott vannak még a fiaik, Rose hét eleven unokatestvére: a bölcs Archie, a piperkőc Steve, Charlie herceg, a gyermeki tisztaságot megtestesítő Geordie, és Will, a csöpp Jamie, valamint a könyvmoly Mac, akikkel a kislány mély barátságot köt. Ezektől az édenei tisztaságú, mégis emberien esendő szereplőktől lesz oly megkapó a regény, amelynek központi alakját, Alec nagybácsit saját édesapjáról mintázta a szerző.
