Louisa May Alcott was an American novelist best known as author of the novel ‘Little Women.’ In the mid-1860s, Alcott wrote passionate, fiery novels and sensational stories. She also produced wholesome stories for children, and after their positive reception, she did not generally return to creating works for adults. Alcott continued to write until her death.

    In Sense and Sensibility Jane Austen comments on the financial situation of women. Elinor and Marianne are virtually penniless in a world where the 'marriage market' is largely governed by money. They lose their home on their father's death ? as did the author herself ? and receive more kindness from strangers than they do from their own brother. This means they are forced to accept the hospitality and company of those they would rather avoid, but despite such 'hardships', they maintain their dignity throughout.
