Mujercitas / Little Women | Louisa May Alcott
Mujercitas, el clasico de Louisa May Alcott ambientado en la guerra de Secesion, fue publicado en Estados Unidos en 1868. Han pasado casi ciento cincuenta anos desde entonces, pero la complicidad de las cuatro hermanas March, quienes a traves de sus gestos y palabras resumen el espiritu critico de una epoca, sigue siendo fuente de inspiracion y disfrute para las generaciones de lectores que se asoman a las paginas de esta fascinante obra. ENGLISH DESCRIPTION Little Women is a novel by American author Louisa May Alcott (18321888), which was originally published in two volumes in 1868 and 1869. Alcott wrote the books rapidly over several months at the request of her publisher. The novel follows the lives of four sistersMeg, Jo, Beth, and Amy Marchdetailing their passage from childhood to womanhood, and is loosely based on the author and her three sisters. Little Women was an immediate commercial and critical success, and readers demanded to know more about the characters. Alcott quickly completed a second volume, entitled Good Wives. It was also successful. The two volumes were issued in 1880 in a single work entitled Little Women. Alcott also wrote two sequels to her popular work, both of which also featured the March sisters: Little Men (1871) and Jo's Boys (1886). Although Little Women was a novel for girls, it differed notably from the current writings for children, especially girls. The novel addressed three major themes: "domesticity, work, and true love, all of them interdependent and each necessary to the achievement of its heroine's individual identity." Little Women "has been read as a romance or as a quest, or both. It has been read as a family drama that validates virtue over wealth," but also "as a means of escaping that life by women who knew its gender constraints only too well." According to Sarah Elbert, Alcott created a new form of literature, one that took elements from Romantic children's fiction and combined it with others from sentimental novels, resulting in a totally new format. Elbert argued that within Little Women can be found the first vision of the "All-American girl" and that her multiple aspects are embodied in the differing March sisters."

#Reading1001

I made it to today‘s years old before I read this American classic.

A sweet story about 4 sisters which does get a bit preachy and saccharine at points but that didn‘t detract much from my enjoyment.

Jo was definitely the highlight of this book although Laurie has his moments.

Marmee, one of the best mothers in literature. Love the book, love the movies. I am most fond of this 1994 version. The music, original score by Thomas Newman, is fantastic.

I have watched both the 2019 (top) and the 1994 (bottom). Personally I like the 1994 version much more than the 2019 version for a number of reasons, including that the 1994 version cast Laurie better than the 2019 version. So of these two versions, which do you like better? #littlewomen #movieadaptations

Scochrane26 I‘ve only seen the recent one, somehow never watched the 1994 one. 5mo

I rewatch and reread Little Women every December in memory of my Bubbe -who loved the original movie which I currently cannot find, however, the Winona I watched last night is my favorite. (I did not like the new one at all, story was fine acting…notsomuch.) I consider it a Christmas movie 😂🎄♥️🤷🏻‍♀️

Finished Little Women for a book club last month. Had such a great discussion. I definitely thought I‘d read this as a young adult, but I‘m fairly certain I had only watched the movie version 🙊 I‘m glad I read this, but it was dense. The poems and newsletter, I could have done without. Overall 4⭐️

1. Hanging out with Jo and the sisters would be a fun way to quarantine. Dressing up, reading, playing music in that place and time.
2. Taking walks even on these cold days. Listening to a book podcast, or music or just thinking.
3 Under the Tuscan Sun was a good escape. Read that one a few years ago.

1. I have a few! The 1994 version of “Little Women” with Winona Ryder. I just adore Jo March and my daughter Josephine is named for her. Another great one is “Misery.” Kathy Bates is simply phenomenal in it!

2. I would love to see “The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue” on the big screen. It would have beautiful cinematography and would be a tear-jerker. I love crying from movies. Haha.

It's old-fashioned and preachy, but I never get tired of Alcott's fiercely feminist story and four of my fave ladies: Meg, so good and proper, yet a little vain; Queen Jo, "a girl who was rapidly shooting up into a woman, and didn't like it" (was ever anything so relatable?); Beth aka Little #Tranquility, so-called by Useless Mr. March; and Amy, "a most important person- in her own opinion at least." #BlueCover #JumpIntoJanuary #InspiredNewYear

I need to give up on this book. I put it aside and tried to return to it several times, only to discover that I wasn't much interested in coming back to it. Although it has its heartwarming moments, generally it's much too didactic for me.

Little Women is a well-loved classic. Unfortunately, it failed to win me over. For me, a classic is a story that stands the test of time, one that contains characters or situations that resonate through time. Little Women felt every bit its age, and rather than a fully fleshed out novel it reads more like a series of vignettes about the March family. It is cozy and quaint, but just far too old-fashioned for my tastes. ⭐️⭐️ #ThatsClassic

AlaMich I didn‘t even like it that much when I read it as a kid. I remember thinking it was sort of dull. 1y
MsMelissa @AlaMich this was my first time reading it and I have wondered if I may have felt differently had I read it was I was a kid, but I doubt it. I also found it dull, and that large sections could be skipped without missing a thing. 1y
AlaMich @Book_Fiend_Melissa Someone gave me a set of Little Women dolls back then which I liked more than the book. 😊 1y

Re-read this for November #thatsclassic and I‘m so glad I did. Sure, it‘s a bit preachy and slow paced at times, but when it‘s good it‘s so very good —a warm, cozy comfort read with many enduring truths that make it a classic. It was the perfect #audiobaking accompaniment for making my Thanksgiving pies.🥧

MsMelissa I‘m struggling to finish 😢 I really don‘t like it. It reads more like a series of vignettes than a novel. 1y

I loved this book for #ThatsClassic ❤️

I had read it a long time ago so I had forgotten basically everything (including the professor who was amazing!) I found the second part easier to relate to and less preachy, but honestly I didn‘t mind that so much. I enjoyed the family dynamics, the love they all shared, and how they tried to make each other better people. You can‘t blame the boys for wanting to be part of that :D

Annie1215 I love the professor as much at 30 as I did at 10. I always knew he was good stuff 😂 1y

This was so nostalgic for me. I‘ve been so connected to these characters since I was a little girl, so reading it now was so cozy. I do feel I was tough on Amy and happily accept my mom saying I‘m an Amy.

Admittedly it was a little long so I can see why not everyone in #thatsclassic loved it, but it was like putting on an old sweater. I also forgot how much I‘m in to the Professor 😏

This was one of my #bookspinbingo books as well!

TheAromaofBooks This is one of my all-time favorites, too (I'm Meg haha) And I'm always happy to come across someone else who loves the professor, as he's honestly one of my favorites. 1y

I‘ve got Little Women on the mind since I just finished it today. I immediately think of the March family sharing their Christmas breakfast with a less fortunate family.

This particular one makes me think of the Five Love Languages. Mine is apparently “Acts of Service” so this really hits home for me. Little gestures mean so much.

What about you guys? What‘s your “Love Language”?
