Overview

"A very sane and sensible one that's got to be worked out, so please listen to it, ma'am. I've had it a good while, I've thought it over thoroughly, and I'm sure it's the right thing for me to do. I'm old enough to take care of myself; and if I'd been a boy, I should have been told to do it long ago. I hate to be dependent; and now there's no need of it, I can't bear it any longer. If you were poor, I wouldn't leave you; for I never forget how kind you have been to me. But Uncle doesn't love or understand me; I am a burden to him, and I must go where I can take care of myself. I can't be happy till I do, for there's nothing here for me. I'm sick of this dull town, where the one idea is eat, drink, and get rich; I don't find any friends to help me as I want to be helped, or any work that I can do well; so let me go, Aunty, and find my place, wherever it is."

About the Author

Louisa May Alcott (1832-1888) was an American author and activist. She advocated for abolition and women’s rights, including suffrage, and served as a nurse during the Civil War. Alcott was best known for her literary work. She wrote several short stories and poems, and used a pen name to write passionate adult novels. Alcott’s most acclaimed work to date is Little Women, which has since inspired many film adaptations, and was well-received both critically and commercially when it was first published.
