          Acerca de Louisa May Alcott

          Louisa May Alcott (1832-1888) nació en Germantown, Pennsylvania, y tras pasar buena parte de su vida en Boston, murió en Concord, Massachusetts. La energía y la independencia que ya tenía desde su infancia la acompañaron a lo largo de toda su vida y la llevaron a aceptar distintos empleos para poder ayudar económicamente a su familia. En 1854, Alcott publicó su primer libro, Flower Fables, al que siguieron más de treinta novelas y colecciones de relatos. Pero su nombre iría siempre unido al de Mujercitas, una novela que escribió entre mayo y julio de 1868 por encargo de sus editores.

          Acerca de Edith Wharton

          (Nueva York, 1862 - Saint-Brice-sous-Forêt [Francia], 1937) fue una de las escritoras americanas más populares de comienzos del siglo xx, ganadora en 1921 del Premio Pulitzer por La edad de la inocencia. En 1885 se casó con el banquero Edward Wharton, de quien se divorció en 1913. Durante la década de 1890 escribió relatos para Scribner?s Magazine, y en 1920 publicó una novela histórica titulada El valle de la decisión. Su fama literaria se consolidó con La casa de la dicha (1905), obra poblada de personajes pertenecientes al cerrado y artificioso mundo social en el que ella misma se había criado. En 1907 se estableció definitivamente en Francia.

          Acerca de Mary Wollstonecraft

          Mary Wollstonecraft (Hoxton, 1759 - Londres, 1797). Filósofa y escritora británica. Es autora, entre otras obras, de Vindicación de los derechos de la mujer (1792), considerado como el primer escrito teórico del feminismo, en el cual argumenta que las mujeres no son por naturaleza inferiores al hombre sino que parecen serlo porque no reciben la misma educación. Viajó a Francia durante la Revolución y, de vuelta a Gran Bretaña, se casó con William Godwin, uno de los precursores del movimiento anarquista. Murió tras dar a luz a una niña, Mary Shelley.

          Acerca de George Gissing

          Francine Prose's most recent book is The Lives of the Muses: Nine Women and the Artists They Inspired. A contributing editor at Harper's, she is the author of ten books of fiction, including Blue Angel, a 2000 National Book Award finalist.

          Acerca de Charlotte Perkins Gilman

          Charlotte Perkins Gilman (1860-1935) was a prominent American feminist, sociologist, and author of short stories, poetry, and nonfiction. She was a Utopian feminist during a time when her accomplishments were exceptional for women, and she served as a role model for future generations of feminists because of her unorthodox concepts and lifestyle. Her best remembered work today is her semi-autobiographical short story The Yellow Wallpaper which she wrote after a severe bout of postpartum psychosis.

          Acerca de Kate Chopin

          American author Kate Chopin (1850-1904) wrote two published novels and about a hundred short stories in the 1890s. Most of her fiction is set in Louisiana and most of her best-known work focuses on the lives of sensitive, intelligent women.Her short stories were well received in her own time and were published by some of America's most prestigious magazines-Vogue, the Atlantic Monthly, Harper's Young People, Youth's Companion, and the Century. A few stories were syndicated by the American Press Association. Her stories appeared also in her two published collections, Bayou Folk (1894) and A Night in Acadie (1897), both of which received good reviews from critics across the country. Twenty-six of her stories are children's stories-those published in or submitted to children's magazines or those similar in subject or theme to those that were. By the late 1890s Kate Chopin was well known among American readers of magazine fiction.Her early novel At Fault (1890) had not been much noticed by the public, but The Awakening (1899) was widely condemned. Critics called it morbid, vulgar, and disagreeable. Willa Cather, who would become a well known twentieth-century American author, labeled it trite and sordid.Some modern scholars have written that the novel was banned at Chopin's hometown library in St. Louis, but this claim has not been able to be verified, although in 1902, the Evanston, Illinois, Public Library removed The Awakening from its open shelves-and the book has been challenged twice in recent years. Chopin's third collection of stories, to have been called A Vocation and a Voice, was for unknown reasons cancelled by the publisher and did not appear as a separate volume until 1991.
