The Yellow Wallpaper
“The Yellow Wallpaper” by Charlotte Perkins Gilman was first published in 1892 in New England Magazine and is considered to be Gilman’s best short story. In the story an unnamed woman suffering from postpartum depression is confined to a room with yellow wallpaper to help her get better. The woman is denied any physical or mental activity to stimulate her, and has no say in her treatment. She begins to suffer from low self-esteem, sinking deeper into depression, madness, and despair, and becoming obsessed with the yellow wallpaper.
