This collection underscores the contemporary relevance of Gilman's analysis of American society, the enduring value of her literary and theoretical work, but also raises questions about the limitations embodied and revealed in her analyses. These essays offer a range of assessments regarding Gilman's mixed legacy -- her vision for a truly humane, egalitarian world alongside her persistent presentation of class, ethnic, and racial stereotypes.
