Summary "Charlotte Perkins Gilman's The Yellow Wall-Paper (1892) generated spirited debates in literary and political circles on both sides of the Atlantic when it was first published. Today this story of a young wife and mother succumbing to madness is hailed as both a feminist classic and a key text in the American literary canon." "This volume is essential reading for all those beginning detailed study of The Yellow Wall-Paper and seeking a way through Perkins Gilman's text and the wealth of contextual and critical material that surrounds it."--BOOK JACKET
