Summary
  • Declaring that her mission was "to find out what ailed society, and how most easily and naturally to improve it, " Charlotte Perkins Gilman (1860-1935) was among the vanguard of American first-wave feminists. With Charlotte Perkins Gilman: A Study of the Short Fiction, Denise D. Knight, a distinguished Gilman scholar, contributes a much-needed overview and assessment of the writer's short stories. Arguing that Gilman's short fiction is both didactic and utopian in articulating her vision of social reform - that Gilman's stories "re-create the world according to her vision of the ideal" - Knight offers important insights of students and scholars alike
  • Surveying Gilman's body of stories, this study investigates the early, autobiographical Forerunner and other stories to pinpoint the writer's ideology and advocacy of the principles of nationalism and reform Darwinism; a separate section evaluates "The Yellow Wall-Paper, " placing it in the context of Gilman's larger corpus. A sampling of Gilman's own statements about her work, drawn from various autobiographical sources both published and unpublished, follows; augmenting it are the observations of Gilman's friend and professional colleague Amy Wellington. Of particular interest is a collection of salient critical essays, three of them specially commissioned for this study
