THE CHARLOTTE PERKINS GILMAN READER is an anthology of fiction by one of America's most important feminist writers. Probably best known as the author of "The Yellow Wallpaper," in which a woman is driven mad by chauvinist psychiatry, Gilman wrote numerous other short stories and novels reflecting her radical socialist and feminist view of turn-of-the-century America. Collected here by noted Gilman scholar Ann J. Lane are eighteen stories and fragments, including a selection from Herland, Gilman's feminist Utopia. The resulting anthology provides a provocative blueprint to Gilman's intellectual and creative production.

This volume features twenty-five of the nearly two hundred short stories produced by Charlotte Perkins Gilman during her lifetime. Denise D. Knight has collected stories that demonstrate Gilman's remarkable versatility as a writer of fiction. Although primarily didactic, the stories represent a surprising range of form and style, from fictionalized autobiography to satire, to parables and fables. Gilman's voice reveals both a staunch feminist fiercely committed to promoting social change and a woman whose caustic wit was unmatched by her contemporaries. The original manuscript version of "The Yellow Wall-Paper" and many of the other stories included are here anthologized for the first time. The edition is complete with a critical introduction, explanatory notes, and primary and secondary bibliographies. The fiction included in this volume is divided into five parts: part 1 includes three works based on incidents from Gilman's life, each written in California in the early 1890s; part 2 reprints six stories that explore human rights and social conflicts; the third part features five stories examining issues of autonomy and independence; part 4 comprises four works focusing on a favorite theme of Gilman's - female bonding; and the last section reprints seven short narratives that include stylistic imitations of two of Gilman's contemporaries.

Seminar paper from the year 2008 in the subject American Studies - Literature, grade: 1,0, University of Vienna (Institut fur Anglistik und Amerikanistik), course: Seminar des 2. Studienabschnitts, 40 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: This paper seeks to shed light upon Charlotte Perkins Gilman's short story "The Yellow Wallpaper" (1892) - a text that has become an American feminist classic and has been interpreted as a 'transformed autobiography' (Shulman, xix), as a 'journalistic/clinical account of a woman's gradual descent into madness' (Bak, 39), and in multiple ways as a 'critique of gender relations' (Shulman, xix). It is a 'bitter story', as Ann J. Lane describes it, 'of a young woman driven to insanity by a loving husband-doctor, who, with the purest motives, imposed Mitchell's "rest cure"' (Lane, vii). The narrator of the story is diagnosed as suffering from a 'temporary nervous depression' (W, 4), which is today known as 'postpartum depression', that is, a depression caused by profound hormonal changes after childbirth. Written some five years after the author herself, following the birth of her first child, became 'a mental wreck' in need of a 'rest cure', "The Yellow Wallpaper" is a fictionalized account of Gilman's own subjection to the rest cure of Silas Weir Mitchell, whose mode of treatment so notoriously typified conventional late Victorian doctoring of women ."

rare edition printed. Best known for the 1892 title story of this collection, a harrowing tale of a woman's descent into madness, Charlotte Perkins Gilman wrote more than 200 other short stories. Seven of her finest are reprinted here. Written from a feminist perspective, often focusing on the inferior status accorded to women by society, the tales include "turned," an ironic story with a startling twist, in which a husband seduces and impregnates a naïve servant; "Cottagette," concerning the romance of a young artist and a man who's apparently too good to be true; "Mr. Peebles' Heart," a liberating tale of a fiftyish shopkeeper whose sister-in-law, a doctor, persuades him to take a solo trip to Europe, with revivifying results; "The Yellow Wallpaper"; and three other outstanding stories. These charming tales are not only highly readable and full of humor and invention, but also offer ample food for thought about the social, economic, and personal relationship of men and women - and how they might be improved.
