“The Yellow Wallpaper” by Charlotte Perkins Gilman is one of the best short stories Ever. If you’ve not yet read it, there is no excuse and shame on you. Now, go atone…
Yes, it is a feminist work. De-lovely and straight jacket style.
I always read that one as a Lovecraftian ghost story, myself.
Hah. Yes, it works that way, too.
It’s a powerful story, certainly. Her life story is pretty powerful, too.
No doubt. That she turned her own experience into what became a canon classic, while snubbing her psychiatrist, is truly amazing, tenacious and utterly beautiful.
