Charlotte Perkins Gilman wrenched this small literary masterpiece from her own experience. Narrated with superb psychological skill and dramatic precision, it tells the story of a nameless woman driven mad by enforced confinement after the birth of her child. Isolated in a colonial mansion in the middle of nowhere, forced to sleep in an attic nursery with barred windows and sickly yellow wallpaper, secretly she does what she has to do - she writes. She craves intellectual stimulation, activity, loving understanding, instead she is ordered to her bedroom to rest and 'pull herself together'.

Wow. These three short works are very impressive and amazing. Beautifully written. And the edition is quite a nice little book. ( )

This was a reread for me. I listened to this one in 2018. The audiobook was narrated by Jo Myddleton, and I gave it the full five stars. For such a short story it packs a punch, and it is one that has stayed with me. Last year, when I saw that they had made a GN version of it, I ordered it right away. I was really impressed with how well the illustrations captured the growing tension and the main character's descent into madness. This horror classic is considered feminist literature, too, because it does a beautiful job of depicting how few choices the main character has just because she is a woman. I just can't recommend the story itself highly enough, regardless of what format you prefer. I loved that the GN is unabridged - all of the text from the original story is there beautifully brought to life by the illustrations of Sara Barkat. ( )

Old dialect and ambiguity which are not my preferences.

It was a quick read and I'm glad to be able to scratch it off the 'tbr before you die' list. (I don't really have that list)

I think for it's time period it was probably pretty amazing. A woman with what we assume is postpartum depression is "locked away" for rest and fresh air but the room has this awful wallpaper that she stares at for too many hours until she starts seeing a woman in the wallpaper trying to get out. Until she starts thinking she is the woman in the wallpaper. I believe the story ends with her having a rope around herself. She was trying to make it so the woman (her) couldn't go creeping about outside or something like that. Her husband walks in on this scene. Obviously the fresh air and relaxation did nothing good.

Interesting short story about attitude towards mental health. ( )

I listened to the audiobook and when I finished, I ran to read the ebook as well. This story is creepy and fascinating, its incredible how in just a few pages you can be invested in this woman mind, her life, her obsession.

A great story and definitely something to re-read multiple time to analyze in deep. ( )

There are things in that paper that nobody knows but me, or ever will.
It is the same woman, I know, for she is always creeping, and most women do not creep by daylight.
Personally, I believe that congenial work, with excitement and change, would do me good.
He is very careful and loving, and hardly lets me stir without special direction.
The color is repellent, almost revolting; a smouldering unclean yellow, strangely faded by the slow-turning sunlight.
