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.

EXCEPTIONAL EDITION Immerse in enthralling stories in a beautifully presented edition. Charlotte Perkins Gilman (1860-1935) was a prominent American feminist, sociologist, novelist, writer of short stories and poetry. She was a utopian feminist during a time when her accomplishments were exceptional for women, and she served as a role model for future generations of feminists. The Yellow Wallpaper is a masterpiece first published in 1892. It is a semi-autobiographical short story which Charlotte Perkins Gilman wrote after a severe bout of postpartum psychosis. The story is a collection of journal entries written by a woman whose physician husband John has rented an old mansion for the summer. The story depicts the descent of the narrator into psychosis. With nothing to stimulate her, she becomes obsessed by the pattern and color of the wallpaper. Herland is a brilliant utopian novel first published in 1915. An all-female society is discovered somewhere in the distant reaches of the earth by three male explorers who are forced to re-examine their assumptions about women's roles in society. It definitely is Charlotte Perkins Gilman's most famous novel.

This book contains 167 of the favorite poems of one of the most engaging intellectual leaders of the turn-of-the-century women's movement, Charlotte Perkins Gilman (1860-1935), who enjoyed a highly visible career as an activist, author, and lecturer. An influential social theorist and champion of women's economic independence, Gilman became an enormously prolific writer. Her highly acclaimed first edition of verse, In This Our World (1893), earned her instant celebrity and was followed by such groundbreaking works as Women and Economics (1898) and The Home (1903). At the time of her death, Gilman was in the process of preparing a second volume of her poetry for publication. Although she grew increasingly weak during the final stages of her three-year battle with breast cancer, Gilman's resolve to see her second book of poetry in print never diminished. She left the manuscript in the care of Amy Wellington, an editor and friend, for posthumous publication. "These poems", Wellington acknowledged, "are the full-flowering of Charlotte Gilman's philosophy". She failed, however, to place the manuscript, and it has remained unpublished until now.
