This short story had a profoundly negative effect on me. I still can't think about it without getting an anxious feeling in my stomach. Watching this woman go through her terrible mental breakdown was bad enough; the ending was more than I could handle. Just the image of her "creeping" around the edges of the room, over her husband...*shudder*. The edition I read came with illustrations, which did not help me feel any better about it. I understand the purpose of this text and Gilman was certainly a very talented writer but she really gives me the heebie jeebies

The Yellow Wallpaper, the narrator faces the autonomous nature of men and the patriarchal notion that defines marital responsibility. In order to liberate herself from the expectations of society, she has to break herself. This short story is well-written that I truly enjoyed seeing her go insane. Although, she is crazy to begin with, her insanity manifested to full bloom that she couldn't recognize her own shadow.
