I had to read this short story (may be 6000 words long) called The Yellow Wallpaper for school. It is actually a pretty good book… They also have a thriller movie made in 2011.
The Yellow Wallpaper by Charlotte Perkins Gilman is a story that also reflects on the narrator’s life. It talks about how a woman is sick and her husband John and her brother advise her to stay in bed and not to anything until she gets better. She has to stare at a ugly yellow wallpaper that is in the room where she rests. The setting is in the late 1800s/early 1900s, where the husbands are very domineering over their wife’s.
I would say, read it and let me know your thoughts ! Click on –> “The Yellow Wallpaper” to get the PDF file.
