A seminal story for both feminist and gothic literatures.
The Yellow Wallpaper tells the story of Jane, a woman diagnosed by her husband (a doctor) with a nervous depression, and thus whisked away to a summer home and confined to her bedroom, and her steady descent into madness, manifested through an obsessive analysis of the pattern on her room’s yellow wallpaper.
Based on Gilman’s own experiences with post-partum depression, The Yellow Wallpaper is simultaneously a masterful examination of this harrowing experience, and a pointed criticism of the skewed gender roles of the period, particularly with regards to healthcare and well-being.
