About the Author

Willa Cather (1873-1947), novelist, essayist, and winner of a Pulitzer Prize for One of Ours, is a writer whose writings cover a broad spectrum. Her fiction is somber but not pessimistic.

Kate Chopin (1851-1904) is now best known for stories about women who learn startling secrets about themselves and their men.

Charlotte Perkins Gilman (1860-1935) was considered the preeminent intellectual in the women's movement at the turn of the century; she lectured widely and wrote a major non-fiction work on Women and Economics.

Edith Wharton (1862-1937), born into the carefully guarded upper ranks of New York society, has become widely known through the films of her novels Age of Innocence and Ethan Frome.
