Kate Chopin, Edith Wharton and Charlotte Perkins Gilman by Janet Beer

Book Description

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.

Edith Wharton: Sex, Satire and the Older Woman by Janet Beer Edith Wharton: Sex, Satire and the Older Woman, Hardback (August 2011)

Wharton's late and critically-neglected novels are reclaimed as experimental in form and radical in content in this book, which also suggests that her portrayal of older female characters in her last six novels anticipates contemporary unease about the cultural marginalization of the older woman in Western society.

Cambridge Companion to Kate Chopin by Janet Beer Cambridge Companion to Kate Chopin, Paperback (September 2008)

A collection of essays for students covering Chopin's fiction, context, influences, and the American and transatlantic aspects of her work.

House of Mirth by Janet Beer House of Mirth, Paperback (September 2006)

Edith Wharton's "The House of Mirth" (1905) is a satirical, and also an analysis of a young, single woman trying to find her place in a materialistic and unforgiving society. Part of the "Routledge Guides to Literature" series, this volume is a guide to the novel, and also a way through the critical material that surrounds Wharton's text.

Kate Chopin's 'The Awakening' by Janet Beer Kate Chopin's 'The Awakening', Paperback (May 2004)

Damned upon publication for engaging with the taboo issues of female sexuality and infidelity, Kate Chopin's "The Awakening" (1899) is hailed as a key early feminist text and an important work of American literature. This book combines commentary with reprinted documents to provide an introduction to this widely debated novel.
