Summary
Alcott's short stories are preceded by an extensive introduction. As Elizabeth Young wrote, "Women's Civil War fiction symbolically reimagines the relation between women and nationhood or, more specifically between the disorderly body of the woman author and the diseased body politic of the country at war. The nexus of disrupted and disruptive bodies emerges most clearly in the work of Louisa May Alcott ... Interpreted in the context of the Civil War, Alcott's work offers important insights into nineteenth-century constructions of femininity, masculinity, authorship, war, and nationhood."--Quoted on p. xii
