Charlotte Perkins Gilman’s “The Yellow Wallpaper” presents a woman with a creative mind and a nervous disorder. Facing hopelessness because of a restrictive treatment, the “rest cure,” Gilman’s main character looks for ways to express creativity in solitary confinement. Mental health and freedom are subject to analysis and critical reflection.
