Synopsis

In this classic late-nineteenth-century story by Charlotte Perkins Gilman, a new mother suffering from what we might today call 'post-partum depression', is diagnosed with a nervous disorder.

Instructed to abandon her intellectual life and avoid stimulating company, she sinks into a still-deeper depression invisible to her husband, who believes he knows what is best for her. Alone in the yellow-wallpapered nursery of a rented house, she descends into madness.

This novelette originally appeared in New England Magazine, January 1892, before being published as a standalone volume in 1899. The story has been reprinted many times. Among others, it can be found in the anthologies:

The story is included in the collections Herland: and Selected Stories (1992) and The Yellow Wall-Paper, Herland, and Selected Writings (2009).
