Early life[ edit ] Louisa May Alcott was born on November 29, in Germantown which is now part of PhiladelphiaPennsylvania, on her father's 33rd birthday.
She was the daughter of transcendentalist and educator Amos Bronson Alcott and social worker Abby May and the second of four daughters: Bronson Alcott's opinions on education and tough views on child-rearing shaped young Alcott's mind with a desire to achieve perfection, a goal of the transcendentalists.
The three years they spent at the rented Hosmer Cottage were described as idyllic. After the collapse of the Utopian Fruitlands, they moved on to rented rooms and finally, with Abigail May Alcott's inheritance and financial help from Emerson, they purchased a homestead in Concord.
They moved into the home they named " Hillside " on April 1,but moved inselling to Nathaniel Hawthorne who renamed it The Wayside. Moving 22 times in 30 years, the Alcotts returned to Concord once again in and moved into Orchard Housea two-story clapboard farmhouse, in the spring of Most of the education she received though, came from her father who was strict and believed in "the sweetness of self-denial.
She later described these early years in a newspaper sketch entitled "Transcendental Wild Oats. Her sisters also supported the family, working as seamstresses, while their mother took on social work among the Irish immigrants.
Only the youngest, May, was able to attend public school. Due to all of these pressures, writing became a creative and emotional outlet for Alcott. Inshe and her family served as station masters on the Underground Railroadwhen they housed a fugitive slave for one week and had discussions with Frederick Douglass.

Her letters home—revised and published in the Boston anti-slavery paper Commonwealth and collected as Hospital Sketchesrepublished with additions in  —brought her first critical recognition for her observations and humor.
Her main character, Tribulation Periwinkle, showed a passage from innocence to maturity and is a "serious and eloquent witness". Her protagonists for these books are strong and smart. She also produced stories for children, and after they became popular, she did not go back to writing for adults.
Other books she wrote are the novelette A Modern Mephistopheleswhich people thought Julian Hawthorne wrote, and the semi-autobiographical novel Work Alcott became even more successful with the first part of Little Women: Part two, or Part Second, also known as Good Wivesfollowed the March sisters into adulthood and marriage.
