A fine collection of classic novels, short stories, poems, and essays from
distinguished women writers. Women writers have been making their voices
heard for centuries, but their works were not always taken seriously. Over
time, as women gained more social and political freedom, these works have
reemerged as subjects that are considered to be worthy of closer study.
Classic Works from Women Writers is a collection of more than thirty
novels, short stories, poems, and essays by prominent and lesser-known
female writers since the 17th century. Included in this volume are
groundbreaking works such as Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein; Agatha Christie’s
The Mysterious Affair at Styles, the first Hercule Poirot novel; Charlotte
Perkins Gilman’s short story “The Yellow Wallpaper” and her follow-up
essay; and poetry from the likes of Christina Rossetti, Amy Lowell, and
Sara Teasdale. The words of these authors offer a multitude of perspectives
on different issues that affect not only women but the wider world as well.
