Abstract [en]

Louisa May Alcott’s Little Women contains didactic messages that teach readers valuable lessons about life through Mrs March’s very special kind of family education. It concentrates on the content of her education and her methods, relying on five main qualities—mercy, self-reliance, labor and duty, the family and modesty. These qualities are analysed from the point of view of the implied reader.
