The Yellow Wallpaper (The Original 1892 New England Magazine Edition)

First published in 1892, The Yellow Wall-Paper is written as the secret journal of a woman who, failing to relish the joys of marriage and motherhood, is sentenced to a country rest cure. Though she longs to write, her husband and doctor forbid it, prescribing instead complete passivity. In the involuntary confinement of her bedroom, the hero creates a reality of her own beyond the hypnotic pattern of the faded yellow wallpaper – a pattern that has come to symbolize her own imprisonment. Narrated with superb psychological and dramatic precision, The Yellow Wall-Paper stands out not only for the imaginative authenticity with which it depicts one woman’s descent into insanity, but also for the power of its testimony to the importance of freedom and self-empowerment for women.

    A true classic highlighting the struggle that women experienced from men's lack of understanding of the beauty of being human regardless of gender.

    The original story absolutely worth reading although kind of hard if you are not a native speaker

    There are things in that paper that nobody knows but me, or ever will.

    Behind that outside pattern the dim shapes get clearer every day.

    It is always the same shape, only very numerous.

    And it is like a woman stooping down and creeping about behind that pattern. I don't like it a bit. I wonder—I begin to think—I wish John would take me away from here!

    Nobody would believe what an effort it is to do what little I am able,—to dress and entertain, and order things.
