The study of a woman's gradual mental breakdown. While taking a rest cure, the wallpaper becomes her focus of discontent.

Women and economics : a study of the economic relation between men and women as a factor in social evolution by Charlotte Perkins Gilman( Book )

178 editions published between 1898 and 2012 in 6 languages and held by 2,171 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Charlotte Gilman became the leading intellectual in the women's movement in the United States during the first two decades of the twentieth century. 'The Nation' went so far as to pronounce Women and Economics 'the most significant utterance on the subject of women since Mill's Subjection of Woman'.... No one in her time focussed the arguments so sharply and stated them so lucidly and cogently as she did. Moreover, at a time when most feminists were talking about the ideal of equal rights as the primary justification for women's claims, Mrs. Gilman raised the more fundamental question of the nature and potentialities of the sexes. She challenged the Victorian assumption that men and women were so different that their social activites ought not and could not overlap....She anticipated modern commentators like Margaret Mead, Erich Fromm, and Erik Erikson who have also seen a link between sex and character....A new edition of Women and Economics is justified not only by the important place the book occupied in its own time and in the intellectual and social history of the United States, but also for what it says in lucid and challenging fashion about and to women today." -- Carl N. Degler
Herland by Charlotte Perkins Gilman( Book )

121 editions published between 1915 and 2016 in 6 languages and held by 2,162 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One the eve of WWI, three American male explorers stumble onto an all-female society somewhere in the distant reaches of the earth. Unable to believe their eyes, they promptly set out to find some men, convinced that since this is a civilized country--there must be men. So begins this sparkling utopian novel, a romp through a whole world "masculine" and "feminine", as on target today as when it was written 65 years ago
The Charlotte Perkins Gilman reader : the yellow wallpaper, and other fiction by Charlotte Perkins Gilman( Book )

28 editions published between 1980 and 1999 in English and held by 1,252 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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 the noted Gilman scholar Ann J. Lane are eighteen stories and fragments, including a selection from Herland, Gilman's novel of a feminist utopia. The resulting anthology provides a provocative blueprint to Gilman's intellectual and creative production."--Jacket

Unpunished : a mystery by Charlotte Perkins Gilman( Book )

14 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 935 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Charlotte Perkins Gilman's first and only detective novel begins with a murder to confound any mystery fan: a local attorney, Wade Vaughn, is found dead in his study with a bullet in his temple, a knife in his back, a gaping wound in his skull, a cord around his neck, and a poisoned whiskey glass by his side. As the plot unfolds, it reveals motives for murder as numerous as the means: Vaughn is an evil man who has abused and blackmailed clients, servants, and family members, driven his wife to suicide, and devised a sinister plan for forcing marriage upon his young stepdaughter. The task of untangling this multitudinous mystery falls to a husband-and-wife detective team. The good-natured and resourceful Jim Hunt is sometimes outshone by his clever and intrepid wife Bess, a former journalist, who goes undercover as a servant in the dead man's home. When Bess and Jim finally discover the solution - through secret diaries, hidden surveillance, and last-minute confession - it surprises even them. Unpunished is a mystery with a message; Gilman weaves her case for women's freedom and empowerment into a story rich in twists and turns, colorful characters, red herrings, and wry humor
"The yellow wallpaper" and other stories by Charlotte Perkins Gilman( Book )

35 editions published between 1995 and 2015 in English and held by 935 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Charlotte Perkins Gilman was America's leading feminist intellectual of the early twentieth century. 'The Yellow Wall-Paper' and Other Stories makes available the fullest selection of her short fiction ever printed. In addition to her pioneering masterpiece, 'The Yellow Wall-Paper' (1890), which draws on her own experience of depression and insanity, this edition features her Impress 'story studies', works in the manner of writers such as James, Twain, and Kipling. These stories, together with other fiction from her neglected California period (1890-5), throw new light on Gilman as a practitioner of the art of fiction. In her Forerunner stories she repeatedly explores the situation of the 'woman of fifty' and inspires reform by imagining workable solutions to a range of personal and social problems. The introduction to this edition places Gilman in the cultural and historical context of the American divided self, her Beecher heritage, and her contribution to the female Gothic

The crux : a novel by Charlotte Perkins Gilman( Book )

18 editions published between 1911 and 2012 in English and held by 494 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Crux portrays a multigenerational group of woman who flee the repressive traditions of their New England village on the advice of a woman physician. Migrating to the free and progressive West, they find personal growth and self-fulfillment in a Colorado town. An argument against the nineteeth-century ideal of female "innocence" that left women vulnerable to sexually transmitted disease, the novel invokes classic frontier ideology along with a feminist critique of the male-dominated medical establishment in order to argue for women's sexual self-determination." "Charlotte Perkins Gilman (1860-1935) was a pioneering figure in twentieth-century feminism, an intrepid social theorist, writer, and activist. Originally serialized in Gilman's magazine The Forerunner in 1911, The Crux envisions many of her best-known reformist ideas for gender relations and social organization. In their Massachusetts hometown, her female protagonists languish out of duty to Victorian values that circumscribe women's personal and intellectual development. In Colorado, however they help to establish a thriving new world founded on many of Gilman's principles for progressive social change, including socialized housekeeping, professionalized child care, and economic independence for white, middle-class women."--Jacket
