An Old-Fashioned Girl is a novel by Louisa May Alcott. It was first serialised in the Merry's Museum magazine between July and August in 1869 and consisted of only six chapters. For the finished product, however, Alcott continued the story from the chapter "Six Years Afterwards" and so it ended up with nineteen chapters in all. The book revolves around Polly Milton, the old-fashioned girl who titles the story. Polly visits her wealthy friend Fanny Shaw in the city and is overwhelmed by the fashionable and urban life they live but also left out because of her "countrified" manners and outdated clothes. The novel was the basis of a 1949 musical film starring Gloria Jean as Polly.Polly Milton, a 14-year-old country girl, visits her cousin Fanny Shaw and her wealthy family in the city for the first time. Poor Polly is overwhelmed by the splendor at the Shaws' and their urbanized, fashionable lifestyles, expensive clothes and other habits she has never been exposed to, and, for the most part, dislikes. Fanny's friends reject her because of her different behavior and simple clothing, and Fan herself can't help considering her unusual sometimes. However, Polly's warmth, support and kindness eventually win the hearts of all the family members, and her old-fashioned ways teach them a lesson.Six years later, Polly comes back to the city to become a music teacher and struggles with profession issues and internal emotions. Later in the book, Polly finds out that the prosperous Shaws are on the brink of bankruptcy, and she guides them to the realization that a wholesome family life is the only thing they will ever need, not money or decoration..... Louisa May Alcott (November 29, 1832 - March 6, 1888) was an American novelist and poet best known as the author of the novel Little Women (1868) and its sequels Little Men (1871) and Jo's Boys (1886). Raised by her transcendentalist parents, Abigail May and Amos Bronson Alcott in New England, she also grew up among many of the well-known intellectuals of the day such as Ralph Waldo Emerson, Nathaniel Hawthorne, and Henry David Thoreau. Alcott's family suffered financial difficulties, and while she worked to help support the family from an early age, she also sought an outlet in writing. She began to receive critical success for her writing in the 1860s. Early in her career, she sometimes used the pen name A. M. Barnard, under which she wrote novels for young adults. Published in 1868, Little Women is set in the Alcott family home, Hillside, later called the Wayside, in Concord, Massachusetts and is loosely based on Alcott's childhood experiences with her three sisters. The novel was very well received and is still a popular children's novel today, filmed several times. Alcott was an abolitionist and a feminist and remained unmarried throughout her life. She died in Boston on March 6, 1888. Henry James called her "The novelist of children... the Thackeray, the Trollope, of the nursery and the schoolroom..."..

Preface AS a preface is the only place where an author can with propriety explain a purpose or apologize for shortcomings, I venture to avail myself of the privilege to make a statement for the benefit of my readers. As the first part of "An Old-Fashioned Girl" was written in 1869, the demand for a sequel, in beseeching little letters that made refusal impossible, rendered it necessary to carry my heroine boldly forward some six or seven years into the future. The domestic nature of the story makes this audacious proceeding possible; while the lively fancies of my young readers will supply all deficiencies, and overlook all discrepancies. This explanation will, I trust, relieve those well-regulated minds, who cannot conceive of such literary lawlessness, from the bewilderment which they suffered when the same experiment was tried in a former book. The "Old-Fashioned Girl" is not intended as a perfect model, but as a possible improvement upon [Page] the Girl of the Period, who seems sorrowfully ignorant or ashamed of the good old fashions which make woman truly beautiful and honored, and, through her, render home what it should be,-a happy place, where parents and children, brothers and sisters, learn to love and know and help one another. If the history of Polly's girlish experiences suggests a hint or insinuates a lesson, I shall feel that, in spite of many obstacles, I have not entirely neglected my duty toward the little men and women, for whom it is an honor and a pleasure to write, since in them I have always found my kindest patrons, gentlest critics, warmest friends. L. M. A.

Das Buch erzählt die Lebensgeschichte der Schwestern Meg, Jo, Beth und Amy, die gemeinsam mit ihren Eltern in Neuengland aufwachsen. Die kluge, jungenhafte Josephine, die hübsche und fügsame Meg, die selbstlose und friedliche Beth und das Nesthäkchen, die egoistische Amy, werden von ihren kindlichen Luftschlössern bis hin zur Frauwerdung begleitet. Marmee, Mutter der vier kleinen Frauen, wacht aufmerksam über die Entwicklung und den Umgang ihrer Kinder. Der Vater ist im Krieg. Meg, die im Vergleich zu ihren Schwestern den größten Wert auf die Einhaltung bestehender Konventionen legt, heiratet schon früh. Mit John Brooke, dem Hauslehrer des jungen Nachbarn und Freundes Laurie, gründet sie eine Familie, die bald um die beiden Kinder John, Jr. "Demi" und Margreth "Daisy" erweitert wird. Später kommt noch Josephine "Josy" dazu, die in Little Men erwähnt wird. Beth, die ihr Leben ihrer Familie widmet und aufopferungsvoll im Haushalt und bei kranken und armen Nachbarn arbeitet, ist selbstlos bis in den Tod. Bei der uneigennützigen Versorgung einer armen Nachbarsfamilie steckt sie sich mit Scharlach an. Wenn sie sich auch vorübergehend von der Krankheit erholt, ist diese ausschlaggebend für Beths frühen Tod. Amy, das Nesthäkchen der Familie, möchte alles und bekommt es nicht immer. Sie sieht sich als Künstlerin, kann als Gesellschafterin mit einer Tante nach Europa reisen und sich dort künstlerisch weiterbilden. Sie heiratet Laurie, den wohlhabenden Nachbarsjungen ihrer Familie, den langjährigen Seelenbruder ihrer Schwester Jo, kehrt gemeinsam mit ihm nach Amerika zurück und bekommt eine Tochter. Jo möchte im Gegensatz zu Amy viel, bekommt aber weniger. Sie wünscht sich unter anderem finanzielle und individuelle Unabhängigkeit, Ruhm und Anerkennung als Schriftstellerin sowie eine Reise nach Europa. Die ersehnte Reise wird nicht von ihr, sondern von Amy angetreten.
