Best known for the 1892 title story of this collection, a harrowing tale of a womans descent into madness, Charlotte Perkins Gilman wrote more than 200 other short stories. Seven of her finest are reprinted here.Written from a feminist perspective, often focusing on the inferior status accorded to women by society, the tales include Turned, an ironic story with a startling twist, in which a husband seduces and impregnates a naïve servant; Cottagette, concerning the romance of a young artist and a man whos apparently too good to be true; Mr. Peebles Heart, a liberating tale of a fiftyish shopkeeper whose sister-in-law, a doctor, persuades him to take a solo trip to Europe, with revivifying results; The Yellow Wallpaper; and three other outstanding stories.These charming tales are not only highly readable and full of humor and invention, but also offer ample food for thought about the social, economic, and personal relationship of men and women — and how they might be improved.
