Inez Haynes Gillmore.

I stumbled upon this book when it was mentioned in The Secret History of Wonder Woman as an early feminist story. I found it for free as an Amazon classic download and really enjoyed this very interesting telling of the battle of the sexes, and sadly can say that not much has changed.

The story is amazing. This product however leaves something to be desired. The story itself is old, and out of print. This publisher cut corners and printed a 300 pg book in 100 pgs, meaning the printed text itself is smaller than this text. Like, get out a magnifying glass to read it small. Very dissapointed in the book itself NOT the actual story.

I found this book quite interesting about the middle of the book...This is a different type book...but I can see how a different kind of people can start over!

This is an intriguing feminist work from the early part of last century, while a little dated, is still very enjoyable. The first part is a bit slow--five men are shipwrecked on a tropical island, and they play talking heads about their situation and their view of women. Finally the plot starts taking shape when they discover that they are being watched by some very unusual creatures. They debate what to do, and make their move about halfway through the book in what has to be one of the more shocking events that I've read in a book in quite a while. From there, the plot gets even more pointed, and it ends on quite a redeeming note. I'm sorry I I can't go into more detail, but you really should read it yourself. Beware the edition that Jill gave me, however; there's an introduction by Ursula LeGuin that gives away some plot bits. I was reading it before the book, but got an intimation that she was talking much more about the plot than I cared to know before reading the book.

This edition is a reprint of an exquisite 1914 feminist fantasy adventure novel, which went out of print without fanfare and then was "rediscovered." It is an allegory about women's freedom and the restraint imposed by heterosexual pair-bonding.
A group of five men are shipwrecked on an uncharted island where they meet five shy but dazzling winged women. While they hammer and build and pass the time Robinson-Crusoe style, the women silently flutter in and out of their days, teasing them with unattainable femininity.
The men devise plans to capture and woo the angel-like women, using "bait" such as mirrors and scarves. Finally they succeed, and in a terrible scene, cut the wings from each woman, forcing them to walk from henceforward.
Lots of dialogue about male-female relationships as the pairing off ensues. The men hold a variety of viewpoints about the proper way to treat women. A final surprise arrives with the new generation. Wings!!
I didn't read this particular reprint but the original hardcover from 1914!! Wonderful Book! Some reviews refer to it as feminist fiction.
How trite to give it that moniker. Its a great story about the two sexes struggling to get along. Period.
Simple but effective writing. Highly highly recommended.
