Ella Hepworth Dixon
By Margaret D. Stetz
By the time her sole contribution to The Yellow Book, a short story titled “The Sweet o’ the Year,” appeared in the April 1896 issue, Ella Hepworth Dixon’s major accomplishments as a writer of fiction were already behind her: an episodic comic novel, My Flirtations (1892), and the work of feminist social realism for which she is best known today, The Story of a Modern Woman (1894).
