  • Crazy As The Character From The Story
    916 words
    The Yellow Wall-Paper The Yellow Wall-Paper by Charlotte Perkins Gilman is a story about a woman and her psychological difficulties, in which her husband tries to help her. The story, although very captivating, is very confusing. It's easy to follow but hard to get a meaning or reasoning about what is going on. The only conclusion that makes sence in my opinion is that the main character goes crazy. This is a strange concept considering that the story is supposed to be somewhat semi-autobiograph...

    2,105 words
    American Gothic literature of the late nineteenth century can generally be characterized by its interest in Psychology. Rather than incorporate the supernatural or science fiction, which is the foci in other Gothic works at the time, authors such as Edgar Allen Poe and Charlotte Perkins Gilman use this mental condition of their protagonist in order to achieve the expected Gothic reaction.

    592 words
    Critical Response to Gilman's "The Yellow Wallpaper" Using Biographical and Historical Criticism Charlotte Gilman was a renowned feminist author who published most of her work in the late 1800's and the early 1900's. Her works, of which "The Yellow Wallpaper" is most famous, reflect her feminist views. Gilman used her writings as a way of expressing these views to the public. At the time "The Yellow Wallpaper" was written, the attitude in colonial America towards feminists was not one of toleran...
  • Testament To Gilman's Own Life Experience
    1,453 words
    For the women in the twentieth century today, who have more freedom than before and have not experienced the depressive life that Gilman lived from 1860 to 1935, it is difficult to understand Gilman's situation and understand the significance of "The Yellow Wallpaper". Gilman's original purpose of writing the story was to have gained personal satisfaction if Dr. S. Weir Mitchell might change his treatment after reading the story. However, as Ann L. Jane suggests, "The Yellow Wallpaper" is "the b...
