This collection brings together 12 of the finest short stories of prominent American feminist author Charlotte Perkins Gilman. The Yellow Wallpaper, Gilman's best-known work, was first published in 1892 and represents an important examination of 19th-century attitudes toward women's physical and mental health. Written as a collection of journal entries by a woman whose physician husband has confined her to her bedroom, the story depicts the narrator's descent into psychosis as her confinement gradually erodes her sanity.

This collection also includes the stories The Giant Wistaria, According to Solomon, The Boys and the Butter, Her Housekeeper, Martha's Mother, A Middle-Sized Artist, An Offender, When I Was a Witch, The Cottagette, Making a Living, and Mr. Robert Grey Sr.

    " Rating based only on the short stories...I plan on reading the other works that only had selections included in this compilation at a later date. "

    " A tough emotional read that often explores the outer edges of human emotion and isolation. Not for the timid. "

    " I read The Yellow Wallpaper for a class, and absolutely loved it! It's so well-written, and haunting, I still remember the story very clearly, and I haven't read it in at least a year. Gilman does a great job of entering the mind of a woman gone mad. "

    " The Yellow Wallpaper was recommended to me by my Creative Writing teacher. Thank you Holly MacIntosh! Wow. She slips, spirals, descends, and finally washes into a complete madness brought on by post-partem depression (I think.) When I finished this short story I set it aside and just sighed. I wasn't sure what other reaction I should have to such a tale. Fantastic for those driven mad at the thought of sanity. "
