95 books of Charlotte Perkins Gilman

Charlotte Perkins Gilman (July 3, 1860 – August 17, 1935) was a prominent American sociologist, novelist, writer of short stories, poetry, and nonfiction, and a lecturer for social reform. She was a utopian feminist during a time when her accomplishments were exceptional for women, and she served as a role model for future generations of feminists because of her unorthodox concepts and lifestyle. Her best remembered work today is her semi-­autobiographical short story, "The Yellow Wallpaper", which she wrote after a severe bout of postpartum psychosis.

"The Yellow Wallpaper" is a 6,­000-­word short story, which was first published in January 1892 in The New England Magazine. It is regarded as an important early work of American feminist literature. It shows the attitudes toward women's physical and mental health in the 19th century.
Presented in the first-­person perspective, the story is a collection of journal entries written by a Jane whose physician husband, John, has restricted her to the upstairs bedroom of the house he has rented for the summer. She is forbidden to do anything, so she can recover from what he terms a "temporary nervous depression – a slight hysterical tendency.­" (A diagnosis common to women in that period). The windows of the room are barred, and there is a gate securing the top of the stairs, stopping her from roaming the rest of the house. She has to hide her journal from him, in fear he will destroy it.
The story depicts the effect of incarceration on the narrator's mental . . .

The home - its work and influence by Charlotte Perkins Gilman

In offering this study to a public accustomed only to the unquestioning acceptance of the home as something perfect, holy, quite above discussion, a word of explanation is needed.

First, let it be clearly and definitely stated, the purpose of this book is to maintain and improve the home. Criticism there is, deep and thorough; but not with the intention of robbing us of one essential element of home life—rather of saving us from conditions not only unessential, but gravely detrimental to home life. Every human being should have a home; the single person his or her home; and the family their home.

The home should offer to the individual rest, peace, quiet, comfort, health, and that degree of personal expression requisite; and these conditions should be maintained by the best methods of the time. The home should be to the child a place of happiness and true development; to the adult a place of happiness and that . . .

According to our religious belief, the last best work of God is the human race. According to the observation of biologists, the highest product of evolution is the human race. According to our own natural inner conviction, this twofold testimony is quite acceptable: we are the first class.

Whatever our merits when compared with lower species, however, we vary conspicuously when compared with one another. Humanity is superior to equinity, felinity, caninity; but there are degrees of . . .
