The Yellow Wallpaper - Charlotte Perkins Gilman


February 2005

Suggested By: Dawn


Summary: A nameless woman is driven mad by enforced confinement after the birth of her child. Written in 1892, and at just 28 pages, this was the oldest and shortest book we'd tackled as a group. Whilst not universally adored, it proved great to discuss - for example, how much were judgements clouded by knowing that it was based on the author's own experience?
