"Little Women" Characters:

1- Meg: is short. She is the oldest one of the four March sisters. Besides, she is the most typical of the sisters who loves luxury, nice things as well as good society. She is the only one who remembered the days of her. She wished to be wealthy again as well as had a castle with many servants as well as expensive possessions. In addition, she is romantic that in case that she had to tell a story in order to amuse her sisters, it will be about love and marriage

2- Jo: is the second oldest March sister who is a writer. She seemed to be modeled after Louisa May Alcott herself. She cuts as well as sells her hair in order to help her sick father. She loves literature that she love to read and write it. She can forms plays for her sisters in order to perform as well as writes stories that she published. In addition, she seemed to intimated Dickens as well as Shakespeare and Scott that whenever she didn’t perform chores, she went up in her room that is located in the corner of the attic and read her favorite book.

She attempted to make her clothes as well as accessories politeness in addition makes social claims on the family's wealthy friends and neighbors as well. She is pretty and successful. Moreover, she seems to be overly sensitive even spoiled.

Who Is My Favorite Characters?

I think that Jo is my favorite character because she worked hard for the prosperity of her family in addition for her sick father. In addition, she refused Laurie’s offer to marry her, in spite of the fact that everyone seemed to assume that they could end or finish together. On the other hand, she gives up her writing then she marries Professor Bhaer, who seems to be seen either as a domestic triumph or as a professional loss and as a result, she loses independence for the sake of her family.

Beth is the other character whom I liked, as she is very shy and quiet. She had a good soul that she always attempts to please other people in addition she seems to be concerned with keeping the family members together. I think that she has the ability to struggle with minor faults such as her resentment for the housework and it is a good thing therefore, she is a good person. Like JO, she seemed to have antisocial tendencies that she does not want to live in society where women are forced to conform to social conventions of female behavior and so I think that she wanted to have a role in her society not like any other women.

"Little Women" Analysis:

I like the story that the story of Little Women is regarded as a marvelous novel. It is full of humorous adventures as well as tragic moments. I think that I like the part in the story where the moment Teddy is going to proposes to Jo but although she rejects him, she is in love with him. I recommend the story of Little Women to anyone who want to enjoy the theme of romance, disappointment, misery in addition the desire to read about a four girls who struggled so much in life.
