Most widely held works by Charlotte Perkins Gilman
The yellow wallpaper by Charlotte Perkins Gilman( Book )
170 editions published between 1892 and 2017 in 7 languages and held by 2,787 libraries worldwide
"This edition of The Yellow Wallpaper includes a generous selection of cultural and historical documents that illuminate how Gilman's classic feminist tale can be read as a springboard for her subsequent career as a cultural critic." "The documents accompanying this edition have been selected to help readers situate The Yellow Wallpaper in relation to Gilman's time period and wide range of interests. Included are excerpts from nineteenth-century advice manuals for young women and mothers; medical texts discussing the nature of women's sexuality; social reform literature concerning women's rights, the working classes, and immigration; and excerpts from periodicals, diaries, and writers' notebooks that give readers a sense of the changing literary scene that Gilman entered. Both Gilman's story and her subsequent career as a social critic are illuminated when readers see her as a writer about and a citizen of her time."--BOOK JACKET
Herland by Charlotte Perkins Gilman( Book )
133 editions published between 1915 and 2017 in 6 languages and held by 2,180 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
Women and economics : a study of the economic relation between men and women as a factor in social evolution by Charlotte Perkins Gilman( Book )
154 editions published between 1898 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,125 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

Unpunished : a mystery by Charlotte Perkins Gilman( Book )
14 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 927 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 crux : a novel by Charlotte Perkins Gilman( Book )
18 editions published between 1911 and 2012 in English and held by 494 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
