A wide range of short fiction by Kate Chopin, Edith Wharton and Charlotte Perkins Gilman is the focus for this study, examining both genre and theme. Chopin's short stories, Wharton's novellas, Chopin's frankly erotic writing and the homilies in which Gilman warns of the dangers of the sexually transmitted disease are compared. There are also essays on ethnicity in the work of Chopin, Wharton's New England stories, Gilman's innovative use of genre and "The Yellow Wallpaper" on film. This paperback edition includes a new Preface to the material, providing a useful update on recent scholarship on these three popular writers.

About the Author:

Janet Beer is Pro Vice Chancellor and Dean of Humanities, Law and Social Science at the Manchester Metropolitan University.

Review:

"Janet Beer's work is particularly welcome in that it combines meticulously attentive generic and thematic readings... with a scrupulous ability to situate the texts both within the context of the author's oeuvre and within the wider social context of the American fin de siècle... An immensely rich and impressively sustained series of interpretative readings, which makes full use of recent relevant scholarship."--Helen May Dennis, Journal of American Studies
