Gilman, Charlotte Perkins: The Forerunner Short Stories 1. v1. 14 Mar 2015

Charlotte Perkins Gilman (1860-1935) was mostly self-educated, but became a leading intellectual in the women's movement. She began a career as a public lecturer in 1890, and wrote many poems, articles, non-fiction works, short stories, and novels. Her most famous book is 'The Yellow Wallpaper' (1892), written after a bout of post-partum depression. She was didactic in all her writings -'In my opinion it is a pretty poor thing to write, to talk, without a purpose' - often with sardonic humour and always with compassion. She was often called a feminist, but preferred to be called a humanist.

Between late 1909 and 1916 she wrote, edited, and published 'The Forerunner', a monthly magazine. Each issue had poems, non-fiction articles, essays, and serialised longer non-fiction works, as well as short stories and serialised longer fiction.

This ebook contains the fourteen short stories in 'The Forerunner' volume 1, November 1909 to December 1910. They are are fascinating examples of Ms Gilman's ideas and work, and mention family relationships, gender equality, marriage, a phonograph, politics, romance, and witchcraft.
