I had never heard of Tillie Olsen before this reading this story. I found “I Stand Here Ironing” to be very interesting to say the least. She is an excellent writer but I would not say I am a fan of her work. I found this story to be a difficult read and I unfortunately could not find any interest in it.

Although she was unhappy no one in her family knew she wanted to leave until she was already gone. In a letter she was writing to her family Marilyn said, “I have kept all these feelings inside me for a long time”. This inward questioning about whether she should stay at home and become the perfect housewife, or if she should chase her dream of becoming a doctor is what defines Marilyn as a character. She has all of these aspirations however, due to the social norms around her she is forced to choose between two separate lives. This decision and specifically the letter relates back to the title where it hints at secrets kept by characters in the novel.

I have to prove that I am worth the life that I want and as I do this I will begin to bring forth my desires and dreams will begin to come true.

Janie is characterized as a strong, self-sufficient, and independent. But, she was introduced to the book as all these things, but the author shows how she had developed into someone with these qualities throughout the course of the rest of the book beginning with flashback.
