Aubrey (korrick) | 2004 comments The Yellow Wallpaper, Charlotte Perkins Gilman, 1892, United States, SHORT STORY

"...She believes she is ill but her husband and her brother, also a physician, say it is only "temporary nervous depression—a slight hysterical tendency."...She believes "personally...that congenial work, with excitement and change, would do me good. Personally, I disagree with their ideas. But what is one to do? I did write for a while in spite of them; but it does exhaust me a good deal—having to be so sly about it, or else meet with heavy opposition."..."

(J.L., p. 286)

Aubrey (korrick) | 2004 comments It's a shorty, too. I wasn't as impressed with it as I thought I'd be, but you may get more out of it, Zanna.
