The Yellow Wallpaper Summary

The Yellow Wallpaper by Charlotte Perkins Gilman

In 1892 a furious Charlotte Perkins Gilman put pen to paper and created the avant-garde feminist work The Yellow Wallpaper as a warning - in this haunting Gothic tale, a woman is confined to a room and forbidden to do anything interesting - and she loses her mind. In 1887, following a severe nervous breakdown, Gilman had been sent to a leading neurologist, she explains in 'Why I Wrote The Yellow Wallpaper', also included in this volume. He was a 'wise man' who 'put me to bed and applied the rest cure... and sent me home with solemn advice to live as domestic a life as far as possible... and never to touch pen, brush or pencil again as long as I lived. I went home and obeyed those directions for some three months, and came so near the borderline of utter mental ruin that I could see over.' The Yellow Wallpaper is both a haunting illustration of the treatment of mental health and a chilling Gothic tale, and this new edition makes it ready to enchant another generation of readers.

The Yellow Wallpaper Reviews

'Quite apart from its origins [it] is one of the finest, and strongest, tales of horror ever written.' (Alan Ryan)
