The Olive Schreiner Letters Online
Online (Economic & Social Research Council of the UK)
|The feminist and socialist writer and social theorist Olive Schreiner (1855-1920) was one of the most important – and radical – social commentators of her day.
Schreiner’s published writings include novels, allegories and influential works of social theory, among them The Story of An African Farm, Undine, From Man to Man, Dreams, Dream Life and Real Life, Trooper Peter Halket of Mashonaland, The Political Situation, Closer Union, and Woman and Labour.
Around 5000 of Schreiner’s letters, written between 1871 and 1920, survive. They appear in The Olive Schreiner Letters Online just as she wrote them – including omissions, spelling mistakes, deletions and insertions.
