Herland by Charlotte Perkins Gilman

$3.50

In Herland, a vision of a feminist utopia, Gilman employs humor to engaging effect in a story about three male explorers who stumble upon an all-female society isolated somewhere in South America.  Noting the advanced state of the civilization they’ve encountered, the visitors set out to find some males, assuming that since the country is so civilized, “there must be men.”  A delightful fantasy, the story enables Gilman to articulate her then-unconventional views of male-female roles and capabilities, motherhood, individuality, privacy, the sense of community, sexuality, and many other topics.  This inexpensive edition of Herland will charm readers with the tale’s mischievous, ironic outlook.  5 3/16” x 8 ¼”.  Paperback; 128 pages.
