谷歌Doodle紀念路易莎·梅·奧爾科特184周年

路易莎·梅·奧爾科特(Louisa May Alcott) (1832-1888)是一位美國女作家。她出生在賓夕法尼亞州的日耳曼敦,但她的一生卻是在靠近馬薩諸塞州的康科特城度過的。她自小受當作家和教師的父親的影響。在父親的熏陶下,她很早就對寫作產生了興趣。為了幫助維持貧窮的家庭,路易莎在成為專業作家之前不得不靠做女傭、家庭老師和裁縫掙錢。

From The Author

"I like good strong words that mean something," says Jo March in Little Women. The same could be said of that beloved novel's author, Louisa May Alcott, who was born on this day in 1832. In addition to being a writer, Alcott was a suffragist, abolitionist, and feminist. She grew up in the company of luminaries like Ralph Waldo Emerson, Nathaniel Hawthorne, and Henry David Thoreau, who fostered in her a strong sense of civic duty. Alcott volunteered as a nurse during the American Civil War, and her family's home was a station on the Underground Railroad. She was active in the women's suffrage movement and became the first woman to register to vote in Concord, Massachusetts. Through it all, she wrote novels and short stories tirelessly, sometimes working 14 hours a day.

Today's Doodle portrays Beth, Jo, Amy, and Meg March, as well as Jo's best friend Laurie, their neighbor. The March family of Little Women was based on Alcott's own, and the coltish Jo was Louisa's vision of herself: strewing manuscript pages in her wake, charging ahead with the courage of her convictions, and cherishing her family above all.
