great happiness; something that is pleasing and well chosen

source: Merriam dictionary

This word is taken from short story “The Yellow Wallpaper” it is found in the second paragraph of the story.

I believed the narrators use of this word was to imply the idea of gaining pure romantic happiness as it relates to staying at the mansion. But as we discover from reading this is quite contrary.
