The Yellow Wall-Paper, Herland, and Selected Writings, Paperback / softback Book

The Yellow Wall-Paper, Herland, and Selected Writings Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

Wonderfully sardonic and slyly humorous, the writings of landmark American feminist and socialist thinker Charlotte Perkins Gilman were penned in response to her frustrations 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 wry novel that imagines a peaceful, progressive country from which men have been absent for 2,000 years.

Both are included in this volume, along with a selection of Gilman's major short stories and her poems.
