Though best known for the lighthearted look at family life and sisterly relationships in Little Women, some of Louisa May Alcott’s work touched on more socially significant themes. Behind a Mask, Or a Woman’s Power is one of several works that Alcott penned under a pseudonym. Perhaps freed by the anonymity this guise granted, she delves deeply into issues of gender, family, and social class in this story that focuses on the relationship between a governess and the family she works for.
