Louisa May Alcott was very popular and respected as the author of novels, sensational tales, travel writing and temperance tracts. In addition to providing a wealth of new information for scholars interested in the writer, this considerable collection of nineteenth-century reviews also reveals more about the ways in which reading audiences were constructed in the nineteenth-century U.S. The reviews provide a window into nineteenth-century attitudes toward popular fiction and women writers as well.
