Louisa May's battle : how the Civil War led to 'Little Women'

Krull, Kathleen2013
Books
Louisa May Alcott is best known for penning 'Little Women', but few are aware of the experience that influenced her writing most - her time as a nurse during the Civil War. Caring for soldiers' wounds and writing letters home for them inspired a new realism in her work, and it was when her own letters home were published that she had her first success as a writer.
