Woman and labour by Olive Schreiner( file )

Published in 1911, this penetrating analysis of gender inequality is also a full-throated demand for equal treatment of the sexes and the rights of women. As remarkable as the book itself is the fact that Schreiner reconstructed it from memory after all her notes were lost in a fire

Published in 1890, this remarkable collection of dreams is notable for its surreal, poetic intensity. Some of the dreams are allegorical, while others have a wild quality to them, as if they flowed directly from the author's unconscious onto the page. Includes what is perhaps Schreiner's best-known short piece, A Dream of Wild Bees

Olive Schreiner by Cherry Clayton( Book )
3 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 109 libraries worldwide
Schreiner's close relationships also led her to a deeper understanding of the effects of a hypocritical social code on women. Exploring the relationship between gender and imperialism, Clayton traces Schreiner's emerging feminism and discusses how the development of this ideal informed the author's opposition to colonialism. Although she was strongly critical of the colonial political system, Schreiner had a deep love for South Africa and found in her "intense responses to the landscape" a symbolic alternative to the oppressions of society. Clayton, herself a South African, brings to her readers this sense of place and of the beauty that it lends to Schreiner's work. Clayton examines each of Schreiner's major works, The Story of an African Farm, From Man to Man, and Women and Labour, as well her pamphlets and political writing, placing her discussion in the context of contemporary criticism. Throughout her study, the most thorough assessment of Schreiner's work to date, Clayton draws a vivid portrait of her subject, a lonely and heroic woman and artist, whose writings document a crucial moment in the history of colonial society
