9781403942760: Kate Chopin, Edith Wharton and Charlotte Perkins Gilman: Studies in Short Fiction

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. All three writers are still popular in US classrooms in particular. This paperback edition includes a new Preface to the material, providing a useful update on recent scholarship.

About the Author:

JANET BEER is Pro Vice Chancellor and Dean of Humanities, Law and Social Science at the Manchester Metropolitan University, UK. She has lectured and published extensively on late nineteenth/early twentieth century American women's writing, and is currently working on a book, in collaboration with Avril Horner, on the figure of the older woman in Edith Wharton's fiction (to be published by Palgrave Macmillan in 2006). Her other publications include Special Relationships: Anglo-American Affinities and Antagonisms, 1854-1936 (co-edited with Bridget Bennett, 2002), American Feminism: Key Source Documents,1848-1920 (editor, 2002), and Edith Wharton (2001).

Review:

Review of Hardback Edition:

'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

'In this brilliant book, Janet Beer reinvigorates our readings of these three central authors. Concentrating on their short fiction - along a spectrum from Chopin's micro-narratives to Wharton's novellas and Gilman's social analogues - she opens up the nuances, complications and surprises at the heart of all their writings. Engaged, richly informed, and beautifully crafted, every chapter remains memorable, illuminating unexpected facets of each individual author, and stimulating fresh approaches to their work. Taken together, these subtle readings illuminate the practices and possibilities of women's writing in the 1890s and beyond, and offer original insights into the nature and art of fiction.' - Dr Pamela Knights, Department of English Studies, University of Durham, UK
