Book Description

31 Aug 1998 0813917964 978-0813917962 Abridged edition
One of the leading intellectuals of first-wave feminism, Charlotte Perkins Gilman (1860-1935) was a prolific socialist writer and lecturer. Nearly forgotten in the years following her death, she has been the subject of renewed interest and appreciation in recent decades. Drawing from her previous two-volume edition of The Diaries of Charlotte Perkins Gilman, editor Denise D. Knight here makes available a streamlined version of Gilman's extensive personal diaries and journals, with representative selections from various periods of her life. Included in this single volume are entries written between 1 January 1879 and 12 March 1935. These selections illustrate Gilman's development from a restless, high-spirited, and opinionated young woman to a mature, internationally known author and lecturer whose words touched thousands as she worked to effect social change.

Amazon.com: 5.0 out of 5 stars  1 review
5.0 out of 5 stars Charlotte Perkins Gilman was an early modern woman with very distinctive ideas! 31 May 2013
By Beth Williamson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
She had a wide variety of interests, wrote poetry, divorced her first husband who
then married one of her best friends. The threesome continued as friends for many
years and shared the rearing of Charlotte's only daughter. Her book on Women and
Economics is well worth reading and "The Yellow Wallpaper" is a short story
masterpiece as well as exposing the misguided ideas of physicians who felt that
women who exercised their minds would become ill. She spoke from the pulpit
in Universalist churches and also in what is now the United Church of Christ.
Her science fiction story, Herland, is another don't miss book!
