    So, so good, the belittling and infantilizing treatment of this poor woman, and her entrapment in the room with the yellow wallpaper by her physician husband is a case history in how to drive someone completely insane.

    The Yellow Wallpaper, first published in 1992, is now a staple of middle and high school English classes and college Gender and Women s Studies programs, linked to Kate Chopin s The Awakening, Ibsen s The Doll House and similar texts reflecting on the damage patriarchy does to society, especially to women Gilman wrote a lot of fiction, and also Women and Economics, was a friend of feminist and social reformer J

    I read The Yellow Wallpaper in my 8th grade Literature class and I was a bit blown away Parts of this short story have stuck with me since So, when I spotted this tiny tome for only fifty cents, I had to have it.The title story was every bit as eerie creepy quirky as I remember, but I had missed the stunningly superb writing I m so pleased that I revisited this I thoroughly enjoyed the following stories as well.
