While Mary E. Wilkins Freeman’s current reputation rests almost exclusively on her numerous collections of short stories for adults, her thirty-nine published works also include poems and stories for children, novels, and a play, Giles Corey, Yeoman (1893), a historical tragedy which, in part, dramatizes her ancestors’ involvement in the Salem witch trials of 1692. Some forty stories, together with a handful of articles, magazine verse, and other fugitive pieces, remain uncollected.
