Beschreibung

In between "The Yellow Wallpaper" (1892) and _Herland_ (1915), feminist Charlotte Perkins Gilman (1860-1935) wrote and published this delightful fictional autobiography, _Benigna Machiavelli_ (1914), in her monthly magazine, _The Forerunner_. The narrator, young Benigna MacAvelly, decides as a child that she intends to emulate her ancestor NiccolĂČ Machiavelli but dedicate her machinations to doing good rather than evil. She starts her ingenious plotting very early in life (for example, as an 11-year-old, she enlists her classmates in an elaborate money-raising scheme to buy a new watch for an impoverished teacher), and moves on to larger goals as she gets older. Her most significant challenge is her domineering father. Determined to liberate her downtrodden mother from his verbal abuse, Benigna concocts an elaborate plan to deal with him and restore her mother's self-confidence. (Summary by Winnifred Assmann)
