Nineteenth Century Public And Private Spheres

Published Online: 2015-03-25 | DOI: https://doi.org/10.1515/genst-2015-0008


The aim of this paper is to illustrate the public and private spheres. The former represents the area in which each of us carries out their daily activities, while the latter is mirrored by the home. Kate Chopin and Charlotte Perkins Gilman are two salient nineteenth-century writers who shape the everyday life of the historical period they lived in, within their literary works that shed light on the areas under discussion.
