A Mary Wilkins Freeman Reader (French Modernist Library) by Mary Wilkins Freeman

Mary Wilkins Freeman (18521930), born in Randolph, Massachusetts, began to publish stories about New England in the early 1880s. In the following decades, Freeman drew widespread praise for her intimate portraits of women and her realistic depictions of rural New England life. She published short stories, essays, novels, plays, and childrens books. nbsp; Her stories, written in a clear and direct prose, are remarkable for their unpretentious, sympathetic portrayals of the lives of ordinary New Englanders of Freemans era. Many of the stories depict rebellion against oppressive social and private conditions. Others describe conflicting desires for independence and lasting relationships. nbsp; This volume of twenty-eight stories is the first to provide a representative sample of Freemans finest work, from all phases of her career. It makes plain why Freeman (in the words of editor Mary R. Reichardt) is widely recognized as an important figure in the history of American womens fiction . . . and the development of the American short story. nbsp; Mary R. Reichardt is an associate professor of English at the University of St. Thomas. She is the author ofMary Wilkins Freeman: A Study of the Short FictionandA Web of Relationship: Women in the Short Fiction of Mary Wilkins Freemanand the editor ofThe Uncollected Stories of Mary Wilkins Freeman.
