Classic Works from Women Writers
by Editors of Canterbury Classics and A. J. Odasso




Overview -
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.
