Work: A Story of Experience by Louisa May Alcott

Alcotts concerns about social justice, womens work, domesticity, and community lie at the heart of this provocative novel.

In this story of a womans search for a meaningful life, Alcott moves outside the family setting of her best known works. Originally published in 1872, Work is both an exploration of Alcotts personal conflicts and a social critique, examining womens independence, the moral significance of labor, and the goals to which a woman can aspire. Influenced by Transcendentalism and by the womens rights movement, it affirms the possibility of a feminized utopian society.
