Description

The Yellow Wallpaper is a short story which deals with the physical and mental health of women in the 19th Century. Depicted as a series of diary entries, it tells of a woman whose physician husband has rented a summer mansion as a place for her to recuperate from a "temporary nervous depression." She is forbidden to work, confined to one room and must eat well and get fresh air. As a result of her understimulation, the narrative describes her descent into psychosis.show more
