9780140437393: A New-England Nun: And Other Stories (Penguin Classics)

A collection that shows Freeman's many modes - romantic, gothic, and psychologically symbolic - as well as her use of pathos and sentimentality, humour, satire and irony. These stories centre on questions of women's integrity, courage and privation; explore the idea of masculinity; and dramatise the relationship between rural New England and modern culture and commerce. Also included here is 'The Jamesons', a series of sketches about village life reprinted for the first time since the turn of the 20th century.

For more than seventy years, Penguin has been the leading publisher of classic literature in the English-speaking world. With more than 1,700 titles, Penguin Classics represents a global bookshelf of the best works throughout history and across genres and disciplines. Readers trust the series to provide authoritative texts enhanced by introductions and notes by distinguished scholars and contemporary authors, as well as up-to-date translations by award-winning translators.

About the Author:

Mary E. Wilkins Freeman (1852-1930) was born in Randolph, Massachusetts and spent almost half a century in New England. She wrote prolifically throughout her career, publishing numerous stories, thirteen novels, children's books, a play, and poetry. In 1926 she won the Howells Medal for Fiction from the American Academy of Arts and Letters, and later that year she was one of the first women elected to the membership of the National Institute of Arts and Letters.
Sandra A. Zagarell is Professor of English at Oberlin College. She is coeditor of the Penguin Classics edition of The Morgesons by Elizabeth Stoddard.
