The Yellow Wall-Paper, Herland, and Selected Writings Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A superb collection of fiction and poetry from a major feminist voice in American literature Wonderfully sardonic and slyly humorous, the writings of landmark American feminist and socialist thinker Charlotte Perkins Gilman were penned in response to her frustration with the gender-based double standard that prevailed in America as the twentieth century began. Perhaps best known for her chilling depiction of a woman?s mental breakdown in her unforgettable 1892 short story ?The Yellow Wall-Paper,? Gilman also wrote Herland, a cunning, wry novel that imagines a peaceful, progressive, environmentally conscious country from which men have been absent for two thousand years. Both are included in this volume, along with a selection of Gilman?s major short stories and her poems.

About the Author

Charlotte Perkins Gilman (1860-1935), born in Hartford, Connecticut, was a great-niece of Harriet Beecher Stowe. Among the 200 short stories and books she wrote during her lifetime are The Man-Made World, Human Work, and a major text of the women's movement, Women and Economics.

Denise D. Knight is a professor of English at the State University of New York at Cortland and the author of Charlotte Perkins Gilman: A Study of the Short Fiction.
