Analysis Before I even began to read O’Brien (2011), I had already made the assumption that the content was filled with horror stories about her days spent in a mental hospital. After reading the title, I prepared myself for the stories of abuse, neglect, over medication, thoughts of suicide, and calls for help. O’Brien (2011) outlined her typical day in the mental hospital where she had been staying and to my surprise, she concluded by clearing the stereotype known by many about mental hospitals. I found the first fifty-five minutes of her day to be quite depressing myself. Knowing what it is like to lay in your bed, trying to drift off to sleep, but never do.
While the narrator was sitting in her room she states, “Sometimes I think there are a great many women behind, and sometimes only one, and she crawls around fast, and her crawling shakes it all over” (Gilman). 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. Weir Mitchell, in 1887, and that the story’s purpose was to spare others from such treatment” (Bittel). Therefore, using the first person point of view in present tense shows the deep emotional and mental state of her life.

I was obviously confused with the situation that I was being placed in at that time, but I knew that I could trust them. She told me that I had come earlier that day and complained of a headache and was told to lie down. I took a nap and missed some of my next class.

The first example is Mildred she is a character who doesn’t know anything but isn’t happy, When Montag comes in her room, “…sleeping tablets which earlier today had been filled with thirty capsules and which now lay uncapped and empty…”(Bradbury 10) This shows that Mildred isn’t happy and tries to commit suicide even though she doesn’t know anything. Another example is Montag. Montag in the beginning book is ignorant is can be seen he isn’t happy. An example of how he isn’t happy is after talked with Clarisse he says, “ Of course I’m happy. What does she think?”(Bradbury 8) It can be seen that Montag isn’t sure he is happy or he wouldn’t have to tell himself that he is happy.
