Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In 1892, Charlotte Perkins Gilman published her landmark work, "The Yellow Wall-Paper," generating spirited debates in literary and political circles on both sides of the Atlantic. Today this story of a young wife and mother succumbing to madness is hailed both as a feminist classic and a key text in the American literary canon. <BR>This sourcebook combines extracts from contemporary documents and critical reviews with incisive commentary, providing: <BR>*an introduction to the political, biographical and medical contexts in which Gilman was writing<BR>*a publishing and critical history of the work with extracts from the earliest reviews through to recent criticism<BR>*a chronology of key biographical and contextual events<BR>*an annotated guide to further reading<BR>*original illustrations and photographs of the author and figures related to the story. <BR>Filled with extensive commentary, as well as contextual and critical materials, this reprint of the complete original text-as published in the New England Magazine in 1892-constitutes an important critical edition.
