    This is a collection of the many works by Louisa May Alcott. There were several short stories in the collection that I passed over (I wasn't interested in the truly juvenile stories, which is why I gave this four stars instead of five). However, the fact that it contains Little Women, Little Men, Jo's Boys, Eight Cousins, Rose in Bloom and Jack and Jill made this a truly worthwhile read. I've always counted these books among my favorites since childhood and they don't disappoint as an adult. If This is a collection of the many works by Louisa May Alcott.

    Published in 1982, on the 150th anniversary of Louisa's blessed birth, this handsome collection includes Little Women, Little Men, and a "scrap-bag" of 24 short stories...highlighting the drawings of her earliest illustrators, and retaining all the old-fashioned spellings and punctuations. Just a joy.

    This great collection contains the best biography of Miss Alcott I have ever come across. It includes many excerpts from her own diary, and brings to light the answers to some things that had puzzled me about some of her stories. For example, I had always wondered why there are discrepancies in the names of characters in "Eight Cousins", and the sequel, "Rose in Bloom". In reality, Miss Alcott had never planned to write a sequel to "Eight Cousins", but was pressured into it by her publisher and This great collection contains the best biography of Miss Alcott I have ever come across. It includes many excerpts from her own diary, and brings to light the answers to some things that had puzzled me about some of her stories. For example, I had always wondered why there are discrepancies in the names of characters in "Eight Cousins", and the sequel, "Rose in Bloom". In reality, Miss Alcott had never planned to write a sequel to "Eight Cousins", but was pressured into it by her publisher and the need for money. Having no copies, because she would have had to write the entire book over in longhand before sending it to the publisher, she could only rely on her memory. She whipped the sequel out in three weeks, working twelve hours at a stretch, neither eating or sleeping when at work. This also might explain also why there is so much poetry copied from others in "Rose in Bloom". "Under the Lilacs" is a sweet adventure story with a happy ending, and would make a beautiful Hallmark movie. I think it was written in haste, because I found many spelling errors. "Jack and Jill" starts out with a bad sledding accident, but I personally think it makes a better story than it would a movie. "Hospital Sketches" and several other stories are based on Miss Alcott's blood-curdling nursing adventures. Miss Alcott paid off her father's debts and was petrified about incurring any more debt, whatever the cause. Her accomplishments included not only sewing for money and for charity, nursing soldiers during the Civil War, financially supporting her parents, her widowed sister and two nephews, sending her youngest sister to study art in Europe, (and raising her infant niece after that sister died) but writing some of the most beloved literature in existence. There were several male friends in her life, but she never quit working long enough to consider settling down as a wife. This excellent collection includes some of the sensational tales alluded to in "Little Women", including a couple of horror stories and plays. Miss Alcott caught typhoid fever while nursing soldiers and was dosed with calomel, (mercuric chloride) the side effects of which caused her intense pain in her extremities for the rest of her life. She became very ill when her little niece Lulu was ten, and had Lulu sent to Switzerland to live with her father's mother. Miss Alcott died soon after. All of Miss Alcott's stories are not sweet, wholesome tales for little girls and boys, but for the time, there were none better. She held strong abolitionist views, but the language of her day, especially regarding people in other countries, seems intolerant. Her "adult" stories can contain shockingly unexpected content. This collection contains over 170 works by Miss Alcott, and I have relished nearly every one.

    Not as popular as she should be. I started reading Little Women as a young child, and have gone on to read a large portion of LM Allcott's works. I have always very much enjoyed them, and felt encouraged and strengthened by them. They aren't popular today- no wizards, no violence- but they remind me of much that was good in the way my parents raised the four of us. I am not an active church goer or Christian, but I don't believe one needs to be to try to do a little good here and there. I have be Not as popular as she should be.

I have been, and am still, ill often and these books remind me to try to be patient and not take my frustrations on others. I love these books and stories, and cannot thank Miss Alcott enough for writing them.

    Satisfying re-read Alcott is like a old friend with whom you can renew the friendship from the moment you pick up any of her work. Just finished re-reading Under The Lilacs - and I can't fault its "too perfect" ending because it would feel like an insult to that loyal friend of my childhood.

    This book title is very inaccurate. It does not contain 'To Tame a Tartar' Unfortunately this book was purchased to obtain one story in particular and it doesn't have it! The above referenced story is not here and so this book cannot be the 'complete' works. This book title is very inaccurate.

    Old world charm No one is expected to and no one will read this in one session. Use it as a time filler far back on the burner.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. It's nice to have all of these together. Louisa may Alcott was my favorite author when I was a child. I must say that her writing seems a little simplistic to me now. It's nice to have all of these together. Louisa may Alcott was my favorite author when I was a child.

    I have read much of her work over the years. Great to have them all. Alcott has always been a favorite writer of my wife's. I read a few of her works and found them very interesting.

    This isn't the exact one I have at home, but it's the closest one I could find. I bought the one I have with babysitting money in 1982. It's beautiful! Red (faux leather), gilded edged pages....

    The included short stories were quite fun to read. They were all good in their own little way, teaching small bits of moral sense in their own way.

    LMA was one of my formative fiction instructors and I would die for her. She wrote thoughtful, engaging stories that made me (I hope) more thoughtful and engaging.
