In 1892, Charlotte Perkins Gilman published her landmark work, The Yellow Wall-Paper, generating spirited debates in literary and political circles on both sides of the Atlantic. Today this story of a young wife and mother succumbing to madness is hailed both as a feminist classic and a key text in the American literary canon. This sourcebook combines extracts from contemporary documents and critical reviews with incisive commentary, providing: *an introduction to the political, biographical and medical contexts in which Gilman was writing *a publishing and critical history of the work with extracts from the earliest reviews through to recent criticism *a chronology of key biographical and contextual events *an annotated guide to further reading *original illustrations and photographs of the author and figures related to the story. Filled with extensive commentary, as well as contextual and critical materials, this reprint of the complete original text--as published in the New England Magazine in 1892--constitutes an important critical edition.

In Wild Unrest, Helen Lefkowitz Horowitz offers a vivid portrait of Charlotte Perkins Gilman in the 1880s, drawing new connections between the author's life and work and illuminating the predicament of women then and now. "The Yellow Wall-Paper" captured a woman's harrowing descent into madness and drew on the author's intimate knowledge of mental illness. Like the narrator of her story, Gilman was a victim of what was termed "neurasthenia" or "hysteria"--a "bad case of the nerves." She had faced depressive episodes since adolescence, and with the arrival of marriage and motherhood, they deepened. In 1887 she suffered a severe breakdown and sought the "rest cure" of famed neurologist S. Weir Mitchell. Her marriage was a troubled one, and in the years that followed she separated from and ultimately divorced her husband. It was at this point, however, that Gilman embarked on what would become an influential career as an author, lecturer, and advocate for women's rights. Horowitz draws on a treasure trove of primary sources to illuminate the making of "The Yellow Wall-Paper": Gilman's journals and letters, which closely track her daily life and the reading that most influenced her; the voluminous diaries of her husband, Walter Stetson, which contain verbatim transcriptions of conversations with and letters from Charlotte; and the published work of S. Weir Mitchell, whose rest cure dominated the treatment of female "hysteria" in late 19th century America. Horowitz argues that these sources ultimately reveal that Gilman's great story emerged more from emotions rooted in the confinement and tensions of her unhappy marriage than from distress following Mitchell's rest cure. Wild Unrest adds immeasurably to our understanding of Charlotte Perkins Gilman, uncovering both the literary and personal sources behind "The Yellow Wall-Paper."

This volume features twenty-five of the nearly two hundred short stories produced by Charlotte Perkins Gilman during her lifetime. Denise D. Knight has collected stories that demonstrate Gilman's remarkable versatility as a writer of fiction. Although primarily didactic, the stories represent a surprising range of form and style, from fictionalized autobiography to satire, to parables and fables. Gilman's voice reveals both a staunch feminist fiercely committed to promoting social change and a woman whose caustic wit was unmatched by her contemporaries. The original manuscript version of "The Yellow Wall-Paper" and many of the other stories included are here anthologized for the first time. The edition is complete with a critical introduction, explanatory notes, and primary and secondary bibliographies. The fiction included in this volume is divided into five parts: part 1 includes three works based on incidents from Gilman's life, each written in California in the early 1890s; part 2 reprints six stories that explore human rights and social conflicts; the third part features five stories examining issues of autonomy and independence; part 4 comprises four works focusing on a favorite theme of Gilman's - female bonding; and the last section reprints seven short narratives that include stylistic imitations of two of Gilman's contemporaries.

Seminar paper from the year 2008 in the subject American Studies - Literature, grade: 1,0, University of Vienna (Institut für Anglistik und Amerikanistik), course: Seminar des 2. Studienabschnitts, 40 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: This paper seeks to shed light upon Charlotte Perkins Gilman’s short story “The Yellow Wallpaper” (1892) – a text that has become an American feminist classic and has been interpreted as a ‘transformed autobiography’ (Shulman, xix), as a ‘journalistic/clinical account of a woman’s gradual descent into madness’ (Bak, 39), and in multiple ways as a ‘critique of gender relations’ (Shulman, xix). It is a ‘bitter story’, as Ann J. Lane describes it, ‘of a young woman driven to insanity by a loving husband-doctor, who, with the purest motives, imposed Mitchell’s “rest cure”’ (Lane, vii). The narrator of the story is diagnosed as suffering from a ‘temporary nervous depression’ (W, 4), which is today known as ‘postpartum depression’, that is, a depression caused by profound hormonal changes after childbirth. Written some five years after the author herself, following the birth of her first child, became ‘a mental wreck’ in need of a ‘rest cure’, “The Yellow Wallpaper” is a fictionalized account of Gilman’s own subjection to the rest cure of Silas Weir Mitchell, whose mode of treatment so notoriously typified conventional late Victorian doctoring of women .
