The Yellow Wallpaper - Short Story

Yellow Wallpaper


This is one of my all time favorite short stories. It's about a woman's descent into madness as a result of being imprisoned by her husband in the upstairs apartment of their summer home. During the time period this was written, this was how women, diagnosed with hysteria, were "treated." I've heard it said that the main character was actually suffering from post pardum depression at the onset of this tale.
