The Yellow Wall-Paper by Charlotte Perkins Gilman, Elaine Hedges

PDF, EPUB, MOBI, TXT, DOC The Yellow Wall-Paper First published in The Yellow Wallpaper is written as the secret journal of a woman who failing to relish the joys of marriage and motherhood is sentenced to a country rest cure Though she longs to write her husband and doctor forbid it prescribing instead complete passivity In the involuntary confinement of her bedroom the hero creates a reality of her own beyond the hypnotic pattern of the faded yellow wallpaper a pattern that has come to symbolize her own imprisonment Narrated with superb psychological and dramatic precision The Yellow Wallpaper stands out not only for the imaginative authenticity with which it depicts one woman s descent into insanity but also for the power of its testimony to the importance of freedom and self empowerment for women
