4.0 out of 5 stars Fab reading, 15 Feb 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Yellow Wall-Paper and Other Stories (Oxford World's Classics) (Paperback)
Excellent insight into the writing of American feminists in the late 1800's and early 1900's - the stories make interesting reading with some really good twists in the plots - but short enough to pick up and put down. The main story entitled "yellow wall-paper" is fascinating as a stand alone story - but read next to the others it shows Gilman as a female author before her time with a true insight into the potential role of women in society. The chronology of her life makes fascinating reading in itself - I would highly recommend this book for those students of English literature at A level and degree level.

4.0 out of 5 stars An Unnatural Mother, 7 Jun 2011
This review is from: The Yellow Wall-Paper and Other Stories (Oxford World's Classics) (Paperback)
I particularly appreciated the story here, 'An Unnatural Mother', in which a very witty satire on a group of malicious gossips leads us into a portrait of a very likeable heroine and her intense moral dilemma, when she has to choose between rescuing her own two children from an oncoming flood and saving the populations of three nearby villages.
