Yellow Wallpaper Reflection

Decent Essays

When I read “The Yellow Wallpaper” I didn’t know what to think of it. At first I thought the husband was trying to kill his wife by abandoning her in that big old house, but he was actually trying to help her get better. It appeared that the narrator was suffering from some type of mental disorder and the only way to recover was to let her rest in that old mansion. As I kept reading I was so sure the wife was going to die because she was tired and cried most if the time. Especially when she locked the door and had a rope I thought she was going to hang herself. You could tell she was starting to get a little crazy when she mentions seeing things behind the wall. It does not say what she was ill from, but it sounded like she was mentally ill.
