A Study of the Economic Relation Between Men and Women as a Factor in Social Evolution is a book written by Charlotte Perkins Gilman and published in 1898. It is considered by many to be her single greatest work, and as with much of Gilman’s writing, the book touched a few dominant themes: the transformation of marriage, the family, and the home, with her central argument, “the economic independence and specialization of women as essential to the improvement of marriage, motherhood, domestic industry and racial improvement.­”

The 1890’s were a period of intense political debate and economic challenges, with a woman’s movement seeking the vote and other reforms. Women were “entering the work force in swelling numbers, seeking new opportunities, and shaping new definitions of themselves.­” It was near the end of this tumultuous decade that . . .

First appearing in the New England Magazine in January 1892, "The Yellow Wall-­paper,­" according to many literary critics, is a narrative study of Gilman's own depression and "nervousness.­" Gilman, like the narrator of her story, sought medical help from the famous neurologist S. Weir Mitchell. Mitchell prescribed his famous "rest cure,­" which restricted women from anything that labored and taxed their minds (e.­g., thinking, reading, writing) and bodies. More than just a psychological study of postpartum depression, Gilman's "The Yellow Wall-­paper" offers a compelling study of Gilman's own feminism and of roles for women in the 1890s and 1910s.

This edition includes illustrations and an introduction by the editor, eBook Camp. This is an original plot summary and literary analysis not found elsewhere. This is added for your enjoyment and understanding of this historical period piece.

* Beautifully illustrated with atmospheric paintings by renowned artists, The Yellow Wallpaper is a fascinating portrayal of a woman's descent into psychosis through being confined 'for her own good' by her well-­meaning husband to cure her of mild hysteria. It's an absolutely mesmerizing short story that draws the reader deep into the disturbed mind of the narrator to the point of sharing her distorted view of the world. Despite being a prolific writer throughout her lifetime, it is this short story for which Charlotte Perkins Gilman is best known and the tale remains as vivid and immediate today as it was upon first publication over a century ago.

* This meticulous digital edition from Heritage Illustrated Publishing is a faithful reproduction of the original text and is enhanced with images of classic works of art carefully selected by our team of professional editors.

Book Description:

"The Yellow Wallpaper" is a 6,­000-­word short story by American writer Charlotte Perkins Gilman, first published in January 1892 in New England Magazine. It is regarded as an important early work of American feminist literature, illustrating attitudes in the 19th century toward women's physical and mental health.

The story is written in the first person as a series of journal entries. The narrator is a woman whose husband — a physician — has confined her to the upstairs bedroom of a house he has rented for the summer. She is forbidden from working and has to hide her journal entries from him so that she can recuperate from what he has diagnosed as 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 across the top of the stairs, allowing her husband to control her access to the rest of the house.

Charlotte Perkins Gilman (1860 – 1935) was a acclaimed American feminist, sociologist, novelist, writer of short stories, poetry, 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.

Something to Vote For was first published in Gilman’s journal, The Forerunner, in 1911, and reflects the domestic feminism, or “civic housekeeping” argument for suffrage.

We are now republishing this classic title with a brand new introductory biography.
