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.

"Historian Mary A. Hill, who earlier chronicled the life and work of feminist theorist and writer Charlotte Perkins Gilman, turns to the private side of Gilman in this annotated collection of love letters the activist wrote to her second husband, Houghton Gilman, from 1897 to their marriage in 1900. She wrote these twenty- to thirty-page letters on an almost daily basis, revealing a private and passionate side very different from the public career that had won her justifiable national and international acclaim." "Although Gilman's published writings have understandably received considerable scholarly attention, her private letters have not yet received the attention they deserve." "Hill puts the letters into biographical and historical context in an introductory essay that also explains their theoretical and historical importance. The edited and annotated letters then follow in chapters, each preceded by an introductory essay. The book concludes with a biographical sketch of the remaining thirty-five years of Gilman's life, together with an assessment of the letters' historical and biographical significance."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Almost all Gilman’s work asserts optimistically the possibility for utopian change, yet ironically she is probably most widely celebrated for her darkly tragic story The Yellow Wallpaper. The focus of this essay collection is Gilman’s utopianism. Her best-known and critically addressed novel is Herland, and several contributors revisit it in order to deepen our understanding of the complexity of Gilman’s utopian vision. The lesser-known Moving the Mountain – deserving of more attention than it has received – is the subject of a full essay, and other essays explore utopian ideas in Gilman’s short stories.

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.

Der Wandel ist das Leben Spielen die persönliche Entwicklung und das private Umfeld bei Philosophinnen eine größere Rolle als bei Philosophen? Wahrscheinlich nicht.

Geboren an der Ostküste der noch jungen Vereinigten Staaten führt sie ihr Weg, quer über den Kontinent und durch die unterschiedlichsten Berufe. Werbegrafikerin, Zeichenlehrerin, Zimmerwirtin, erst dann findet Charlotte ihre Bestimmung als wissenschaftliche Autorin und Schriftstellerin. Ihr feministisches Hauptwerk Women and Economics ist bis heute ein Standardwerk der ersten Frauenbewegung. PhilosophinnenLeben Mit der Mischung aus biografischem Erzählstil und Auszügen aus Charlotte Perkins Gilmans Werk, fast alle erstmals in deutscher Übersetzung, ist der Autorin Ursula I.

In Wild Unrest, Helen Lefkowitz Horowitz offers a vivid portrait of Charlotte Perkins Gilman in the 1880s, drawing new connections between the author's life and work and illuminating the predicament of women then and now. "The Yellow Wall-Paper" captured a woman's harrowing descent into madness and drew on the author's intimate knowledge of mental illness. Like the narrator of her story, Gilman was a victim of what was termed "neurasthenia" or "hysteria"--a "bad case of the nerves." She had faced depressive episodes since adolescence, and with the arrival of marriage and motherhood, they deepened. In 1887 she suffered a severe breakdown and sought the "rest cure" of famed neurologist S. Weir Mitchell. Her marriage was a troubled one, and in the years that followed she separated from and ultimately divorced her husband. It was at this point, however, that Gilman embarked on what would become an influential career as an author, lecturer, and advocate for women's rights. Horowitz draws on a treasure trove of primary sources to illuminate the making of "The Yellow Wall-Paper": Gilman's journals and letters, which closely track her daily life and the reading that most influenced her; the voluminous diaries of her husband, Walter Stetson, which contain verbatim transcriptions of conversations with and letters from Charlotte; and the published work of S. Weir Mitchell, whose rest cure dominated the treatment of female "hysteria" in late 19th century America. Horowitz argues that these sources ultimately reveal that Gilman's great story emerged more from emotions rooted in the confinement and tensions of her unhappy marriage than from distress following Mitchell's rest cure. Wild Unrest adds immeasurably to our understanding of Charlotte Perkins Gilman, uncovering both the literary and personal sources behind "The Yellow Wall-Paper."

"This collection of fourteen new essays on Gilman's mixed legacy - her vision for a truly humane, egalitarian world alongside her persistent presentation of class, ethnic, and racial stereotypes - underscores the contemporary relevance of Charlotte Perkins Gilman (1860-1935). Gilman enjoyed a worldwide reputation as a writer, lecturer, and socialist, and her prodigious output (novels, stories, poetry, lectures, journalism, theoretical works) stands as a major contribution to modern feminist thought on important, contested economic and social issues. After her death in 1935, she was virtually forgotten. With the revival of the women's movement in the 1960s and 1970s, however, Gilman was "rediscovered," her arguments deemed prescient by late-twentieth-century feminists."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

“These essays exemplify all the virtues of interdisciplinarity in consideration of that most multidisciplined of writers, Charlotte Perkins Gilman. The contributors simultaneously clarify and complicate our understanding of some of the more vexed areas of Gilman's work by engaging saliently with her theories of ethnicity, class, prostitution, and the dynamics of gender; posing difficult questions to contemporary feminist scholars; and providing sensitive and insightful guidance to a well-chosen and wide range of texts.”—Janet Beer, author of Kate Chopin, Edith Wharton and Charlotte Perkins Gilman: Studies in Short Fiction

Considers Gilman's place in American literary and social history by examining her relationships to other prominent intellectuals of her era. By placing Charlotte Perkins Gilman in the company of her contemporaries, this collection seeks to correct misunderstandings of the feminist writer and lecturer as an isolated radical. Gilman believed and preached that no life is ever led in isolation; indeed, the cornerstone of her philosophy was the idea that "humanity is a relation." Gilman's highly public and combative stances as a critic and social activist brought her into contact and conflict with many of the major thinkers and writers of the period, including Mary Austin, Margaret Sanger, Ambrose Bierce, Grace Ellery Channing, Lester Ward, Inez Haynes Gillmore, William Randolph Hearst, Karen Horney, William Dean Howells, Catharine Beecher, George Bernard Shaw, and Owen Wister. Gilman wrote on subjects as wide ranging as birth control, eugenics, race, women's rights and suffrage, psychology, Marxism, and literary aesthetics. Her many contributions to social, intellectual, and literary life at the turn of the 20th century raised the bar for future discourse, but at great personal and professional cost.

Charlotte Perkins Gilman’s provocative utopian novel Herland, first published in 1915, tells its story through the observations of three male explorers who discover a land inhabited solely by women; the women reproduce through parthenogenesis (asexual reproduction). Initially skeptical, the explorers come to realize that Herland has evolved into an ideal, cooperative, matriarchal society—fertile, peaceful, and clean—by selectively reproducing the women’s best attributes. As the explorers study Herland culture, they also rethink their own. This edition reproduces the text originally published in The Forerunner in 1915, including several passages omitted from other editions. Stories, poetry, and nonfiction writing by Gilman on topics such as birth control, capital punishment, and eugenics provide a rich context for the novel. Materials originally published alongside Herland in 1915, many of which have never before been republished, are also included, as is an excerpt from the sequel, With Her in Ourland.
