Work uses many of Alcott's own experiences. She is specifically interested here in examining how women might find meaningful, fulfilling work. Her heroine, Christie, like Alcott herself, goes through a number of jobs - seamstress, servant, companion, governess, actress (Alcott was never a professional actress, but loved to write and act in plays) - before finding a place for herself in a domestic, idealistic, female-centered setting.
Work: A Story of Experience, first published in 1873, is a l novel by Louisa May Alcott, the author of Little Women, set in the times before and after the American Civil War.
The story depicts the struggles of a young woman trying to support herself.
Louisa May Alcott was born in Germantown, Pennsylvania, in 1832. Two years later, she moved with her family to Boston and in 1840 to Concord, which was to remain her family home for the rest of her life. At the same time, her adult fiction, such as the autobiographical novel Work: A Story of Experience (1873) and A Modern Mephistopheles (1877), a story based on the Faust legend, shows her deeper concern with such social issues as education, prison reform, and women's suffrage. She realistically depicts the problems of adolescents and working women, the difficulties of relationships between men and women, and the values of the single woman's life.
