Charlotte Perkins Gilman
This carefully crafted ebook: “A Collection of Poems by Charlotte Perkins Gilman (In This Our WORLD, Suffrage Songs and Verses)” is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents. Charlotte Perkins Gilman (1860–1935) was a prominent American feminist, 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.
