Little Women

by Louisa May Alcott

Antagonist

Character Role Analysis

Jo March

There really isn't any villain in Little Women – no scheming bad guy plotting the downfall of the sisters, no evil genius, and no childhood rival. Instead, each of the girls slowly but surely conquers her own personality flaws. So if the protagonist is Jo March, well, so is the antagonist – she's her own worst enemy.
