As the story progresses it is palpable that the yellow wallpaper itself symbolizes mental illnesses. One reason the wallpaper symbolizes mental illness is because in the beginning of the story the narrator’s insanity is getting worse by her distress over the paper. The narrator of the story is the first person who is affected by the wallpaper, and just like mental illness in real life, the victim is the first person to be aware and affected by their condition.

Strictly speaking, the narrators intellectual lack of activity caused her to see a woman trapped within the wallpaper. The point of view within the short story gives us a better view on what the narrator had to go through. “Years later, Gilman claimed the story reflected her own experience under the care of Philadelphia neurologist, S.

As she enters the shot, Georgina is first displaying that faux smile, however when she is near Chris, her entire body stiffens as the smile dissipates slowly as if in a trance or in fact having an internal struggle. As she continues to pour Chris’ iced tea, her eyes become glazed over frozen in silent fear, possibly reliving an event.

The room was dark and covered with religious memorabilia, white candles lined the room and sage filled the air. It was just as I expected it to be. It was an unusual experience, I was lying on a stiff bed face up and this petite lady with smoky blue eyes prayed and ran a branch of herbs down my body, then she slid a black glass over my lower abdomen and leaned and whispered “ do you believe in a god”, I nodded “do you have faith”, I nodded then she commenced with the ritual.
