Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"There is no female mind. The brain is not an organ of sex. Might as well speak of a female liver."--Charlotte Perkins Gilman

Charlotte Perkins Gilman (1860-1935), a leading figure in the women's movement of the early twentieth century, is a pillar of the American feminist canon. This edition of her work includes her best-known story, "The Yellow Wall-paper," a terrifying tale about a woman driven to the brink of insanity by the "rest cure" she is ordered to follow by her doctor to relieve her postpartum depression. Also included is a wide range of other short stories; an abridged version of her little-known but brilliant utopian novel, Herland, about a peaceful all-female world; and selections from her landmark treatise, Women and Economics, first published in 1898 to universal acclaim.

Synopsis:

Known primarily for her classic story "The Yellow Wallpaper", Charlotte Perkins Gilman was a vastly influential feminist and sociologist in her day. Gilman is a pillar of the American feminist canon, and this edition will include selections from her fictional works, including her little-known but brilliant novel Herland, as well as selections from her non-fiction writing, including her landmark treatise Women and Economics.
