ByCharlotte Perkins

Fans of feminist trailblazer Charlotte Perkins Gilman are in for a treat. Gathered in The Collected Works of Charlotte Perkins Gilman are three of her most famous works: The Yellow Wallpaper This short story is one of the most popular pre-1923 texts in the English language, ranking third only to The Bible and Shakespeare for free downloads on Project Gutenberg. The strange, haunting vignette delineates a woman’s post-partum mental breakdown. First published in January 1892 in The New England Magazine, it is a landmark work of American feminist literature, illustrating attitudes in the 19th century toward women's physical and mental health. It anticipates the works of Sylvia Plath and other feminist writers seven decades later. Also included are the novels Herland and The Man Made World. *Includes image gallery.
