Charlie did not notice the hog until it was some five feet away, and it was too late. The hog trampled Charlie and had her pinned in the mud.

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.

If that was all Amelia remembered, chances were slim that she recalled anything about flying at all! “I don’t think rats would make the best pets for you,” a store clerk frowned at Amelia. “Maybe you should consider goldfish.” “I think we’re all right, cheers,” Elisabeth faked a smile, rushing Amelia out. Clearly, there was little she could do with this woman around – how on earth was she supposed to learn how to pass her pilot exam from
