The Yellow Wallpaper

“The Yellow Wallpaper” by Charlotte Perkins Gilman is a story I felt was kind of intriguing.  While reading,  I started to realize how the author uses bet descriptive words, to describe her scenery. The way she described the walls and how it varied from the lights being shined upon it,  and also a breif image of the house…

While reading half way through the story,  I had an idea, that it was going to end the way it ended. The author kept repeating, that there was an woman trapped in the yellow wall paper and is unable to get out, and she must be the one to set her free. I was able to relate the two together, with the fact that both are trapped. She , herself is trapped because she doesn’t seem to have the freedom. Her husband is too protected of her, and doesn’t want her to leave from her bed, sometimes. I concluded that once the wallpaper was off the wall, both the woman in the wallpaper and her would be free and she, herself would act as someone who yearned for this freedom.
