With Her in Ourland

Charlotte Perkins Gilman

Book Overview: 

Third in the trilogy of the feminist classics, after Moving the Mountain and Herland. It was published serially in Perkins Gilman's periodical The Forerunner. In Herland, three American young men discover a country inhabited solely by women, who were parthenogenetic (asexual procreation), and had borne only girl children for two thousand years; they marry three of the women. Two of the men and one woman leave the country of Herland to return to America; Jeff Margrave remaining in Herland with his wife, Celis, a willing citizen; Terry O. Nicholson being expelled from Herland for bad conduct; and Ellador electing to leave Herland with her husband, Vandyck Jennings. We now continue the story, told from the viewpoint of Vandyck Jennings, as they return to America.

At the end of Herland, Van Dyke and his wife, Ellador, have decided to leave the utopian Herland in order to show Ellador the greater world, for a two-fold pur

"We isolated Herlanders never heard of Socialism," she answered. "We had no German-Jewish economist to explain to us in interminable, and, to most people, uncomprehensible prolixity, the reasons why it was better to work together for common good. Perhaps 'the feminine mind' did not need so much expl

I had to read this sequel to Herland for an 8-10 page paper due tomorrow...so I read it in one sitting (basically), and all it ends up being is Gilman's Socialism hidden under the guise of a story. At least Herland has a story behind it: three men encounter a woman's utopian society. Ok, I'll bite.
