Louisa May Alcott Vs Mark Twain aka Samuel Clemens

Apparently Louisa was quite a feisty woman. When Mark Twain’s novel The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn was published in 1885, Louisa led the movement to have the novel banned because of its crude language, from her home state of Massachusetts.
This was what Louisa had to say, “If Mr Clemens cannot think of anything better to tell our pure-minded lads and lassies, had better stop writing for them.”
Of course the opposite had happened, it only made the novel that much more sought after!
