Charlotte Perkins Gilman: Novels, Stories & Poems

Available in:
  • eBook
  • Hardcover


A definitive edition of the groundbreaking feminist fiction of a nineteenth century pioneer

Library of America presents the fullest selection ever of visionary American writer Charlotte Perkins Gilman: two novels, forty-four brilliant short stories, nearly two-hundred poems, and both the published and manuscript versions of the landmark story “The Yellow Wall-Paper.” The short fiction presented here showcases Gilman’s mastery of ghost stories, allegorical fantasy, and social realism and includes a virtuoso series of stories written in imitation of the most acclaimed authors of her day. The utopian novels Herland and With Her in Ourland—about
a remote and isolated society of women—are pioneering works of speculative fiction and still-incisive commentaries on the politics of gender. Gilman was known to her contemporaries first and foremost as a poet, and this volume brings together her collection In This Our World with more than fifty other poems, many written in support of suffrage and other causes.
