    One thought on “The Yellow Wallpaper

    1. Dannii Elle on said:

      This is one of my all time favourite stories, and rereading it served to remind me why The haunting and chilling tale is told so profoundly, evocatively and beautifully in such a short number of words and every time I read this, I am transported into the tale I become the haunted and unnamed female protagonist and the unsettling effect of the novels permeates into my own reality Her demise into madness becomes my own.What strikes me most about this novel is how it portrays the treatment towards [...]

    2. Khush on said:

      What is so striking about this story is its narrative voice It feels as if someone has just written it As a reader, I am so impressed by this quality the world created than a century ago still resonates with me, it still appears fresh and familiar The young cancer patient and her physician husband John are like any other present day upper middle class couple When we see them, we know them.On the surface, this couple looks happy and satisfied, but as the story unfolds we know about their relati [...]

    3. Jess on said:

      This was one of the most superb short stories I have read in awhile The haunting and chilling accounting of a woman s descent into madness while she is in a forced convalescence The reader is pulled into her world through journal entries written by a woman living in a rented mansion for the summer Her husband is a physician and she defers to his dictate for the rest cure involving no work of any sort, eating well, and not taxing her fragile mind Which is what leads her to hide this journal from [...]

    4. Roya on said:

      I wish I had read it at a time I couldn t identify with her so strongly It seems like a contradictiry statement, but it s not The degree of my identification was just, well, disturbing.

    5. RedSycamore on said:

      Disturbing, eerie, and sharply insightful what a superbly crafted short story It presents a stark picture of historic attitudes toward psychiatric illness, and it s easy to see how it also became a strong part of the foundation of the early feminist suffrage movement despite its lack of proselytizing on either subject Quite a feat to accomplish in 6000 words.The language is so straightforward and the story itself so concise and told in such a matter of fact way that the inevitable result is all [...]

      Ce court r cit nous immisce dans les pens es d une femme, fr lant avec la folie et qui se met analyser le papier peint de sa chambre coucher pendant que son m decin de mari tente de la rassurer face l volution de son tat Ecrit en 1891, ce classique de la litt rature am ricaine nous emm ne dans les pens es d une femme tortur e entre ses fonctions d pouse et de m re, priv e d criture car jug mauvais pour elle et son tat J ai t surprise du rythme tr s poignant, qui nous fait rentrer au fin fond de [...]

    7. Rachel on said:

      To say it was amazing isn t quite right What is true is this is well written and thought provoking, and not to mention terrifying that this was a legitimate practice.

    8. Elena Delaney on said:

      Creeped out for the second time by this story Kind of a Gaslight theme is the husband trying to help or hurt, free or imprison

    9. Kayla DeStefano on said:

      Interesting take on the mistreatment of mental health disorders in women.

    10. Joseph Genovese on said:

      This story spoke to me in a way not many others have I have personally struggled with anxiety throughout my life and still do from time to time In my current home that I have lived in for about a year and a half I often look at the slightly torn wallpaper in my bathroom and it tends to make me feel a bit like the main character It doesn t drive me crazy that it is slightly torn in spots but I can see how someone with a mental disorder or a serious case of OCD could be troubled by the look of a w [...]

    11. Dev on said:

      I really loved the narration, how ambiguous a lot of the information was, and how, much like The Bell Jar, the events were inspired by Gilman s own life and experiences It was one of the most interesting stories I ve read.

    12. Karyl on said:

      In this day and age where women have so much power and control over their own lives, it can be disconcerting to read about a time when women were treated basically as overgrown infants Any sort of stress was characterized as hysteria, and a common treatment was to shut the woman up away from all sorts of stress and from much of life in general She was encouraged to do nothing than to eat and sleep, and refrain from doing anything that would deepen her hysteria This is what s happening in The Y [...]

    13. Tanya Diaz on said:

      The Yellow Wallpaper disturbs and defiantly straddles the boundaries between mental illness, unconventional perception and reality What I found interesting was the realization that it wasn t so much the debate between the heroine s being insane vs having sixth sense, but rather the fact that the protagonist believed in her perception enough to turn it into reality, one which disturbed her enough to DRIVE her insane The aftertaste of this story after reading it for the first time stays with me to [...]

    14. Denise on said:

      Among the books listed as to read women horror stories I finished this story and drifted off to sleep thinking I needed to reread it It was good and I liked the fact I needed wanted to think about it A woman in yearly years of our history finds herself recovering from nerves issues However the room where she sits has this wall paper and a story that leaves you wondering Fast read that will keep you thinking.

    15. Lindsay on said:

      Hated it on my first read back in high school After completing a psych degree and after the budding of some empathy in my cold, dark soul, it got a lot respect from me especially upon learning the effect Charlotte Perkins Gilman had on the treatment of psychiatric disorders with the writing of this book The insight into Victorian era mental health discourse or lack of as well as the narrator s descent into total madness is fascinating Still creeps me the f out though.

    16. Sky on said:

      Oh my Hell, this book was creepy I can t believe it s taken me this long to get a chance to read this, but so glad I finally have A classic and eerie psychological thriller with no bit of supernatural or paranormal elements, just one crazy lady The last several pages had my mouth gaping open with shock I didn t actually suspect that ending at all Great read

    17. Lídia on said:

      A crazy woman who sees her illnes reflected in a horrid yellow wallpaper on the room where she is recovering A short story where she Charlotte herself spent complaining about how horrible is the wallpaer sickness but at the end she face the problemsWierd story with a lot of imagination and a great mind to write between lines

    18. Dilanne on said:

      Different and creepy She goes crazy staring at the wallpaper This is a type of story that keeps you thinking after you ve finished because it doesn t fully tell every aspect of the ending What did the husband truly see for him to faint Blood everywhere The wife actually killed him and thought he fainted There s so many possibilities

    19. Pants on said:

      I ve read this short story a number of times since high school but I just adore it It is such a beautiful little feminist horror story that spits in the face of the resting cure, hysteria, other women s illnesses, and the inevitable lunacy that all medicine becomes in due time Such a great read.

    20. Erin Quinney on said:

      Maybe isolation or rest therapy for a depressed person isn t the best idea It s hard to believe people didn t realize this, you know It makes me wonder what we re doing now, medicall, that, in 50 years, will clearly be viewed as asinine and against all common sense Great story.

    21. Victoria on said:

      I always use the excuse that I m not deep enough to understand, but I don t think I am.

    22. Klay Kubiak on said:

      One of my favorite short storiesry distrubing, great ending scene It ll get under your skin a little bit.

    23. Jeremiah on said:

      Maybe the greatest short story ever written If you haven t read it stop right now and take the hour or so to get it done.

    24. Mindy on said:

      I loved the voice of this story I felt like I was being written to, as if she was my penpal or something Short and sweet, was an interesting diversion from my thesis.

    25. Susan on said:

      A short story that gives a very different view of the postpartum experience and some insight into depression.

    26. Kathleen on said:

      Excellent short story I listened to a well read audiobook, from Librivox I believe I ll look for stories by this author.

    27. Rita on said:

      I only read The Yellow Wallpaper and I loved it 4.5 stars I loved how creepy and eerie it was I felt like there was someone watching me behind my back Great finishing scene as well.
