Ompare and contrast Alcotts and Stevensons depictions of growing up.

In a brief introduction, suggest how the historical contexts of the two books might shape their representations of growing up.

Compare the representations of the transition from childhood to adulthood by Alcott and Stevenson. Focus on three or four different areas for example, the different settings, the treatment of moral issues or the depiction of the shaping of individuality in the two books. You should develop four or five points of contrast in relation to each of the areas you have chosen, supporting your argument with specific references from the set books and with appropriate quotations from the set books.
