Manipulation from a Faustian figure who also deals in drugs and fame?
Seduction and adultery lounging alongside a climax of redemption?
A Modern Mephistopheles is the stage for Louisa May Alcott's own secret passions. It is not the "pap" for children as Alcott said herself of her novel published anonymously in 1877. Not until after her death in 1888 was she revealed to the general public as its author.
This is not the Alcott that you think about, but it is the dark story she wanted to write about in a male-dominated Victorian Age of veiled and hypocritical constraint, a woman's metamorphosis away from a cocoon made by men for men.
