I Stand Here Ironing
Published in 1956 in Tillie Olsen’s Tell Me a Riddle collection, “I Stand Here Ironing” is probably Olsen’s most famous short story. The story is written as a monologue by an unnamed mother as she reflects on the toll that poverty and abandonment must have taken on the childhood of her nineteen-year old daughter Emily. It portrays the difficulties faced by young mothers as they try to bring up children by themselves.
