    Ha.Well.Yes.This is a mismatched selection, the Yellow wallpaper is about twenty pages long and is the better of the two from a literary point of view, Herland is just short of two hundred pages and is one of those books interesting to read about than to read view spoiler and I must impress upon you books that are interesting to read about than to read, are always interesting to read about than to read, even if you take that into account hide spoiler

    This is quite a decent adventure story for it s time and a really interesting read in terms of historical feminism Make sure you keep the time period and the authors background in mind while you read it as some of the views expressed will make you angry Perkins Gilman is very anti men, anti blacks, anti abortion and anti dog As the introduction to the text says, it would be very interesting to see a modern take on this story where the men are less stereotypical and the women less perfect..In other news, I loved the Yellow Wallpaper So insidious and creepy and wonderfully catches the emotion of the characters descent into madness caused by a rest cure.

    I have read The Yellow Wallpaper before There is something very important and also very disturbing about it, and it is a great read for anyone, I think.As for Herland, I am glad I finally read it There is many topics to discuss about it, but for me I think is the most poignant the discussion about religion and the Judeo Christian concept of God, an old one, redundant in our culture nowadays Perkins Gilman pointed this out hundred years ago Yet we still have people who find the laws of God a concept to be obeyed blindly I d like too say we have moved as a society, the western society I mean, but there is still so many things to work on

    Herland tells the story of three men who discover a secluded civilization comprised entirely of women Written in 1915, before Virginia Woolf s A Room of One s Own, you I have to admire the boldness of Gilman s vision some of her ideas, not just about gender equality and feminism, but also about our treatment of the environment and child rearing practices, are prescient and at times feel spot on However, the writing itself, the story telling, is just not as good as some of the ideas and the spirit behind it.

    Synopsis Herland was written by Charlotte Perkins Gilman and published in 1915 It follows three men who discover a utopian community in the that is made up entirely of women This community is free from war, disease, poverty, jealousy, crime, punishment and repression Charlotte Perkins Gilman creates a matriarchal society that highlights some of the issues with our patriarchal society, our suppression of the feminine and the exclusion of females from certain areas of life Storyline Now this story is not really a fabulous tale so to speak and it doesn t have fabulous storytelling The story is used as a sort of social commentary and to bring up some very important gender issues I still loved the story however Such interesting points were brought up and I loved the idea of this utopian society I was afraid it was going to be an angry feminist text with the highest ideal being women being equal to men as in women being able to do things considered manly It wasn t however, this was near perfection I loved this society and just about everything about it The only thing I didn t completely jive with was the view on sex This society freed women from repression, let them be free to do things that they were excluded from before and let them step into some essentially feminine energies with a new and complete power I felt like some of the issues discussed were not just gender issues, but some important societal issues in general Minus the exclusion of men although they try to rectify that at some point in the book we are presented with an idyllic society that some may think isn t possible, but yet still boldly throws in your face the question why not This was a story that made me think so deeply about the society we live in, that s for sure Setting The setting was great This utopian society where the food supply is well thought out and shared equally, where there is no crime and no punishment, where there is no disease, where education isn t a type of institution, but an integral part of life that everyone can be privy to, with a simple religion that makes sense that doesn t involve worship but is just a way of life, with the group love and mentality and with the focus on the children and bringing them the brightest future possible, this was truly wonderful Very surprisingly imagined for it s time Characters The characters were just means to explore certain concepts rather than intense character studies I was ok with that though In that respect this book was similar to what I thought about the characters in Brave New World by Aldous Huxley The three male characters we follow are just different examples of masculinity Terry is a real man s man and he just sees woman as a sex object to be dominated Jeff is one of those men who worships women and probably idealizes them a bit too much, but nevertheless respects them Our narrator Vandyck is just curious about this world and open mindedly explores it s concepts He is just the lens through which we explore this world All the females in this book are just personal examples of the ways of Herland Like I said, the characters are just devices for us to explore certain subjects Did I Like It I really liked this This was quite a hidden little gem This is what I always want feminist literature to be I was surprised this was written when it was I expected an angry feminist manifesto or something that only focused on women being excluded from male activities and no other focus, which I feel like is what a lot of feminist literature can be like This was so incredibly well rounded and wonderful though I feel like this is quite an important book to read with all the present day gender equality issues Women s equality with men is very important Yet, what this world needs is not women becoming men or stepping into what has been in the past, exclusively masculine roles What this world needs is a rebalancing of masculine and feminine principles, which affects everybody I felt like this book was the closest to acknowledging that out of anything else I have ever read Do I Recommend It Yes This is an important book, yet very obscure I think people should pick this up Especially if you are concerned with feminism and love a good utopian novel The short story The Yellow Wallpaper was also included in my copy of this book, so here are my thoughts on that The Yellow Wallpaper The Yellow Wallpaper is a short story of Charlotte Perkins Gilman s and it was published in 1892 It is an account of a woman spiraling into insanity after she takes up residence in the country with her husband as a rest cure She becomes obsessed with the wallpaper in her room as it becomes a symbol of the imprisonment she feels This is an interesting short story that is quite haunting in how it portrays a woman and how her mental health issues were treated in the time this was written in Definitely shows some ignorance of doctors of the day and the frightening issues a woman had to cope with, dealing with what was probably post partem depression I had to read this short story in high school, and it was interesting revisiting this disturbing little tale.

    I definitely recommend getting the edition of Herland with Lindy West s intro It describes the faults and strengths of the novella in a historical context so it s easier to understand how why it was written Perkins Gilman is not the ideal inclusive feminist, but she was ahead of her time and notes some poignant points on sexism and inequality using satire and extreme contrasts between societies That said, her brand of feminism is racist, homophobic, and pro life and it s important to keep that in mind

    Herland verdient meine erste Rezension, da ich es nicht einfach mit einer 2 Sterne Bewertung hier stehen lassen kann Herland ist eins dieser B cher, das ich nicht aufgrund seines literarischen Wertes zu Ende gelesen habe, sondern aufgrund seines historischen Stellenwerts Ich war sehr dankbar ber das Vorwort von Lindy West in dieser Ausgabe, sie stellt Herlands St rken und Schw chen deutlich gegen ber und ja, Schw chen hat es einige Ich habe Herland gelesen, weil ich mich viel und gerne mit feministischer Literatur besch ftige Herland allerdings l sst sich meiner Meinung nach nur unter Einbeziehung seiner Entstehungszeit 1915 als solche bezeichnen Man sollte sich w hrend des Lesens immer wieder daran erinnern 1915, dieses Buch wurde 1915 geschrieben, von einer wei en Frau, 1915 , andernfalls werden einen einige Meinungen und feministische Ans tze beraus w tend machen Es ist mit Sicherheit spannend, sich mit Perkins Gilmans Auslegung von Feminismus auseinanderzusetzen, besonders in Bezug auf die Unterdr ckung und Umst nde der Frau Anfang des 20 Jahrhunderts, als rein literarisches Werk allerdings halte ich Herland f r nicht lesenswert Perkins Gilman legt mehr Wert auf die Konzeption ihres utopischen, ausschlie lich von Frauen bewohnten Staats, in dem es keine Gewalt, kein Verbrechen, keinen Hass und keine Hunde gibt, als auf eine spannende Charaktergestaltung und Entwicklung Herland hat mich w tend und traurig gemacht Einige der hier behandelten misogynen und rassistischen Meinungen sind heute noch so aktuell wie 1915 Wenn nicht noch mehr.

    there were some good points along the lines of Herland but they were lost in the middle of the most boring and dry storytelling ever it s like a politics book told second hand I decided to finish this just purely to see if it would have some point by the end, otherwise I would have given up before half The Yellow Wallpaper was pretty interesting tho

    Written over a century ago, Herland remains remarkably contemporary apart from the casual racism typical of the era.
