FROM THE BLURB:

“It is the strangest yellow, that wallpaper! It makes me think of all the yellow things I ever saw – not beautiful ones like buttercups, but old foul, bad yellow things….It creeps all over the house.”

Charlotte Perkins Gilman wrenched this feminist classic from her own experience. Narrated with superb psychological skill and dramatic precision, it tells the story of a nameless woman driven mad by enforced confinement after the birth of her child. Ordered to a yellow bedroom to rest and “pull herself together”, here slowly but surely, the tortuous pattern of the wallpaper winds its way into recesses of her mind...

9 out of 10

This is one of my old university texts. Been a long time since I've read it but I remember it conveying vivid insight into a woman's disturbed mind. It made me feel thankful that modern women have more freedom and independence.

A little sad to be parting with The Yellow Wallpaper but I know it is available online!
