Little Men, by Louisa May Alcott, is the second book in the Little Women trilogy. Also titled Life at Plumfield with Jo's Boys, the book follows Jo Bhaer and her husband Professor Bhaer as they run the Plumfield Estate School, taking under their wing young boys and girls in need of instruction and love. As in Little Women, each student has his or her own faults that make it all the more difficult to mature into proper young ladies and gentlemen. And, as in Little Women, the children must confront those difficulties and fears head-on before truly learning their lesson. In 1868, Alcott's Little Women launched the success of the March family saga along with the success of Alcott the writer, which lives on into our own time. Little Men focuses on Jo and her family, likely because Alcott modeled Jo after herself and always felt closest to the character. Readers fell in love with the most outgoing March sister as well, and their devotion continued through the exploits of her sons and students in the final two books in this captivating trilogy. LOUISA MAY ALCOTT (1832-1888), one of the most well-known American novelists of the 19th century, was born on November 29, 1832 to transcendentalist educator Amos Bronson Alcott and his wife, Abigail May Alcott. She was the second of four sisters (like Jo, her literary corollary), and grew up in a family that encouraged and sympathized with her abolitionist and feminist leanings. As a child she received instruction from noted literary figures such as Henry David Thoreau, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Margaret Fuller, and Nathaniel Hawthorne, all family friends. In addition to the Little Women series, which included four novels, she wrote 28 other works, three under the pen name A.M Barnard. Though Alcott had chronic health problems in her later years, most likely attributed to an autoimmune disease, she continued to write until her death at 55 in 1888.

Disciplining Girls

At the heart of some of the most beloved children’s novels is a passionate discussion about discipline, love, and the changing role of girls in the twentieth century. Joe Sutliff Sanders traces this debate as it began in the sentimental tales of the mid-nineteenth century and continued in the classic orphan girl novels of Louisa May Alcott, Frances Hodgson Burnett, L. M. Montgomery, and other writers still popular today. Domestic novels published between 1850 and 1880 argued that a discipline that emphasized love was the most effective and moral form. These were the first best sellers in American fiction, and by reimagining discipline as a technique of the heart—rather than of the whip—they ensured their protagonists a secure, if limited, claim on power. This same ideal was adapted by women authors in the early twentieth century, who transformed the sentimental motifs of domestic novels into the orphan girl story made popular in such novels as Anne of Green Gables and Pollyanna. Through close readings of nine of the most influential orphan girl novels, Sanders provides a seamless historical narrative of American children’s literature and gender from 1850 until 1923. He follows his insightful literary analysis with chapters on sympathy and motherhood, two themes central to both American and children’s literature, and concludes with a discussion of contemporary ideas about discipline, abuse, and gender. Disciplining Girls writes an important chapter in the history of American, women’s, and children’s literature, enriching previous work about the history of discipline in America.

Der zweite unvergessliche Roman der internationalen Bestsellerautorin Es brennt! In jedem der Schlafzimmer hat jemand Feuer gelegt. Fassungslos steht Elena Richardson im Bademantel und den Tennisschuhen ihres Sohnes draußen auf dem Rasen und starrt in die Flammen. Ihr ganzes Leben lang hatte sie die Erfahrung gemacht, »dass Leidenschaft so gefährlich ist wie Feuer«. Deshalb passte sie so gut nach Shaker Heights, den wohlhabenden Vorort von Cleveland, Ohio, in dem der Außenanstrich der Häuser ebenso geregelt ist wie das Alltagsleben seiner Bewohner. Ihr Mann ist Partner einer Anwaltskanzlei, sie selbst schreibt Kolumnen für die Lokalzeitung, die vier halbwüchsigen Kinder sind bis auf das jüngste, Isabel, wohlgeraten. Doch es brennt. Elenas scheinbar unanfechtbares Idyll – alles Asche und Rauch?
