Unpunished : a mystery by Charlotte Perkins Gilman( Book )
12 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 918 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 mixed legacy of Charlotte Perkins Gilman ( Book )
8 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 452 libraries worldwide
"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."--Jacket
Posting it : the Victorian revolution in letter writing by Catherine Golden( Book )
8 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 355 libraries worldwide
"Until Queen Victoria instituted the Postal Reform Act of 1839, mail was a luxury affordable only by the rich. Golden demonstrates how cheap postage--which was quickly adopted in other countries--led to a postal "network" that can be viewed as a forerunner of computer-mediated communications. Indeed, the revolution in letter writing of the nineteenth century led to blackmail, frauds, unsolicited mass mailings, and junk mail--problems that remain with us today."--Publisher description

Connection Making Between the Sister Arts by Catherine Golden( Book )
1 edition published in 1987 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
A literature course entitled "The Victorian Illustrated Book: a Marriage of Image and Word," offered at Skidmore College in New York, was designed to help students make connections between art and literature. Based on the premise that illustrations in Victorian books can be "decoded" much like a written text, students were introduced to illustrations from Charles Dickens'"Oliver Twist" and Lewis Carroll's "Alice in Wonderland" and spent time examining the illustrations to determine their faithfulness to the text and how they elaborated upon the narrative. Students also read research that familiarized them with Victorian artistic concerns, such as the language of symbols in artwork, and the Victorian preoccupation with the pastoral, death, and the family. An assignment called for students to examine Dante Gabriel Rosetti's painting "Found" and decode its symbols. More successful students learned not only to decode individual symbols but make ideational connections by seeing the symbols as a whole, as a "text" to be read. During the second month of the course, students were able to see how an illustration highlights a text or provides essential information. As the course neared its end, students had progressed to a point where most easily made ideational connections between the arts, and occasionally made insightful connections between Victorian and modern concerns. The nature of this course seems to encourage students to make a full range of connections. (Jc)
The victorian illustrated book: authors who composed with graphic images and words (william thackeray, beatrix potter, lewis carroll, dante gabriel rossetti) by Catherine Golden( Archival Material )
1 edition published in 1986 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
Viewed collectively, these four author/illustrators use pictures for a range of essential functions in their fictions. This study aims not to suggest that pictures regularly be grafted onto literary forms other than children's literature and poetry, which today alone continue the Victorian illustrated tradition. Rather, this examination of self-illustrated fiction demonstrates the importance of keeping alive visual possibilities for contemporary texts

Charlotte Perkins Gilman and a woman's place in America by Peter J Betjemann( Book )
2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
Charlotte Perkins Gilman and a Woman's Place in America probes how depictions of space, confinement, and liberation establish both the difficulty and necessity of female empowerment. Turning Victorian notions of propriety and a woman's place on its ear, this essay collection studies Gilman's writings and the manner in which they push back against societal norms and reject male-dominated confines of space. The contributors present readings of some of Gilman's most significant works. By examining the settings in "The Yellow Wallpaper" and Herland, for example, the volume analyzes Gilman's construction of place, her representations of male dominance and female subjugation, and her analysis of the rules and obligations that women feel in conforming to their assigned place: the home. Additionally, this volume delineates female resistance to this conformity. Contributors highlight how Gilman's narrators often choose resistance over obedient captivity, breaking free of the spaces imposed upon them in order to seek or create their own habitats. Through biographical interpretations of Gilman's work that focus on the author's own renouncement of her "natural" role of wife and mother, contributors trace her relocation to the American West in an attempt to appropriate the masculinized spaces of work and social organization. --
