The Yellow Wallpaper

  
  When it comes to the story “The Yellow
Wallpaper” by Charlotte Perkins Stetson, the story is about a woman who was diagnosed
with post pardon depression, because she has been diagnosed with this illness she
is told by her doctor and husband that she should take the “normal” route for women
to be cured which is just rest. Within this time, she is stopped from her own
independent self and is not allowed to do things that she would like to do such
as go places and write, of course this drives her totally insane causing her to
start having illusions such as staring at the walls “But there is something
else about that paper – the smell” and “It creeps all over the house. I find it
hovering in the dining-room, skulking in the parlor, hiding in the hall, lying
in wait for me on the stairs. It gets into my hair” pg. 52 these visions that
she is having are starting to control her she even starts to smell it like it
is an actual thing. It is to believe that the wallpapers meaning is that it is
all the combinations of things that she has dealt with such as the medicine,
her husband and doctor and the fact that she is being held back from doing
things.

“The Yellow Wallpaper” is more than just a woman that goes crazy because
she is not just going insane because of her “illness” but it is because of her
husband that is always stopping her from doing what she wants to do just
because she is a woman. By doing this it is causing and if not making her
depression worse. “What is the matter” or “for Gods sake, what are you doing!” pg.
56 is an example of how controlling her husband was when it came to bring her
closer and closer to insanity. This story’s main goal was to show how in many countries
there are women who are treated as if they were nothing and how women’s roles
in society are limited because of their gender, it can do a number on a person
and make things more worse then they already were, by her husband doing this he
is encouraging prejudice behavior of women being free and not being a prisoner
to their significant others. The author made it clear when she explained how
the wife is unable to live life fully without being held back.
