ROUND DOZEN by Louisa May


Email this review


2 stories selected from several volumes of Louisa May Alcott's short stories that have long been out of print. These show the Alcott social conscience work and share the thumpingly moral endings that were de rigueur during the time in which she wrote. She could write about a grinding poverty that was never mean and make her every reader feel as rich as Croesus, and this talent is apparent in several of these. She would never have been remembered for her short stories alone, but this provides the graduates of her favorites with another title to shed those easy tears on.
