9780141441566: Women Who Did: Stories by Men and Women, 1890-1914 (Penguin Classics)

"A lady? decidedly. Fast? perhaps. Original? undoubtedly. Worth knowing? rather."

Daring and dynamic, the "new woman" came to represent the very spirit of the age. The stories in this anthology take up this phenomenon and examine society through the eyes of the new woman, as she encountered new choices in marriage, motherhood, work and love. Women Who Did charts a rebellion that was social, sexual and literary. It tells the stories of competing voices—of the men and women who entered into the fray of the fin de siècle, and were not afraid to confront, challenge or delight in the irrepressible New, in an irrepressibly new form, the short story.

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.
