Little Women

Is "Little Women" based on a true story?

Scholars classify it as a semi-autobiographical novel—Louisa May Alcott revealed in her diaries that she based much of Little Women on her own experience of growing up in Concord, Massachusetts, with her three sisters. Alcott based the character of Jo, the second oldest sister, on herself; however, unlike Jo, Alcott never married. Her real-life sister Anna met her husband while putting on a play, as the character Meg does in the book. She also had a sister Lizzie, who, like the character Beth, died at an early age of complications from scarlet fever.

"We really lived most of it; and if it succeeds that will be the reason of it,” Alcott wrote in her diary.

It depends on what way you look at it because she based the people in her own family so it really depends.

Yeah. It was actually written by a feminist who saw all the characters actually do what happened it the story but they were all male. If they kissed they were g4y. Basically this feminist wanted to write a book for her feminist campaign, so in a nutshell, she ripped off a bunch of actual events portrayed by g4y men and used it for her campaign. I went back in time to see it all.

I may be because the author (Louisa May Alcott) had 3 other sisters. Just like in the book/movies.
