Through a series of journal entries, a woman records her thoughts and feelings over the course of a summer, shortly after giving birth to her child. Confined to her bedroom on the advice of her husband, a physician, "The Yellow Wallpaper" chronicles the woman's increasing instability, as she becomes obsessed with the yellow wallpaper covering the walls of her room. "The Yellow Wallpaper" is considered one of the earliest American feminist works of fiction and is unique for author Charlotte Perkins Gilman's deft handling of the delicate subject of contemporary attitudes about women's bodies, emotions, and mental health. The story is considered to be semi-autobiographical, and is based on Gilman's own experiences with postpartum depression and rest cures. HarperCollins brings great works of literature to life in digital format, upholding the highest standards in ebook production and celebrating reading in all its forms.
