This audiobook includes her most enduring work, "The Yellow Wallpaper" as well as her 1913 article, "Why I Wrote 'The Yellow Wallpaper'" The Yellow Wallpaper Told as a series of secret diary entries, the story is about a young woman, confined to her room and denied all creative outlets, who gradually suffers a mental breakdown. Why I Wrote "The Yellow Wallpaper" Originally published in an issue of the Forerunner, the article addresses the story behind "The Yellow Wallpaper," revealing Gilman's own experience with postpartum psychosis.
