Constance Burke Mackenzie Calhoun English 1102 13 September 2016 The Imprisonment of The Yellow Wallpaper The Yellow Wallpaper is a short story written by Charlotte Perkins Gilman about a woman, which is also the narrator, who suffers from depression. Her husband, John, which is also her physician, misdiagnoses her with hysteria and prescribes her to “the rest cure.” Rather the narrator knows that she is being misdiagnosed or not, she doesn’t speaks up for herself. This is made clear when the narrator says, “If a physician of high standing, and one’s own husband, assures friends and relatives that there is really nothing the matter with one but temporary nervous depression- - slight hysterical tendency- - what is one to do?” (Gilman 227). Her husband believes that his wife is being overly dramatic and that there is nothing wrong with her. He feels like the nursery that is inside the colonial mansion is the safest place for her to stay in.
Being a woman in the early twentieth century, she simply followed what her husband told her. She did not have her own voice and kept her thoughts to herself. With that being said, it is as if her identity is simply that of the average woman during her time. However, the days she spends in confinement go by, the identity of that woman drifts away and she is overtaken by the identity of her own mental illness. As said in Diana Martin’s journal on “Images in Psychiatry”, while the narrator in isolation she becomes “increasingly despondent and nervous”.
In this short story, Gilman devotes the work to the role of females. The book is also known as semi-autobiography of Charlotte. The story is about a woman who suffered from mental illness after giving birth to her little daughter. She knows that she is ill, as well her husband and her brother. To cure her, her husband let her stay in a room with nothing to do, just rest.
She says that in her young age she was in love with a person but her family rejected him as he was not rich. She was compelled to marry another person. They had a son and after a few years her husband died. One day, she met her lover and he felt pity on her and they both brought up her son together. Some years passed happily, but at one point of time, when the son had come to know about their relationship, he ran out of home.
