The Yellow Wallpaper by Charlotte Perkins Gilman

The Yellow Wallpaper is a 6,000-word short story by the American writer Charlotte Perkins Gilman, first published in January 1892 in The New England Magazine. It is regarded as an important early work of American feminist literature, illustrating attitudes in the 19th century toward women’s physical and mental health.

This story has been interpreted by feminist critics as a condemnation of the androcentric hegemony of the 19th-century medical profession. The feminist interpretation has drawn on the concept of the “domestic sphere” that women were held in during this period. (x)
