Americans today tend to believe that just having a child at birth is a normal thing and somewhat painful. While one likely believes it’s easy, one should also believe the effects it has of having a baby. “The Yellow Wallpaper” written by Charlotte Perkins Gilman published in 1899 argues that the unjust treatment that women deal during the 19th century. Gilman demonstrates that the mind of a woman who is going insane over the course of her after birth in the summer, Gilman had a newborn child and is now suffering from post-partum depression. As we read “The Yellow Wallpaper” we see the anger, sadness, and frustration or woman, and how it clearly shows the reader’s how frustrating and sexist women’s lives could be. In addition, shows us how it’s so easy women could go insane when they are isolated from society. In 1913, more than twenty years after the first publisher of “The Yellow Wallpaper” Gilman wrote the story, “to save people from being driven crazy”(Gilman 1). Gilman has been prescribed a rest treatment and isolated from family, in the mid-1800s when she had suffered a near mental breakdown. Very similar to that prescribed to the narrator in “The Yellow Wallpaper”. Gilman emphasizes the horror that such a treatment could cause to its subjects. She says: “But I don’t want to go there at all”(Gilman 1) when the narrator is terrorized by her husband John with being sent to Dr. S Weir Mitchell. Who she had a friend who was also sent to Weir Mitchell and is just like John and her brother but only worse. Gilman’s narrator is trapped by the nineteenth-century American society “That woman’s function is to bear and raise children”(Gilman 3). Her husband John has taken away one of the few things that bring her happiness and pleasure which is her writing. She says “He hates to have me write a word”(Gilman 3) for Gilman, the only way to resuming her normal life which is certainly included writing, was what resorted her health. Four generations of women, connected together in their martyred and futile lives through this mother and daughter bond. Hundreds of years, since Gilman, reports that she wrote “The Yellow Wallpaper” woman faced the conflicts lives of being a wife and mother as well as a person. “Women who care for infants are almost literally used up in the process”( Gilman 1) while yet being aggressive enough to stay alive; and how to be both good, supportive and necessarily selfish but above all sane. “The Yellow Wallpaper shows what a frustrated woman does with anger”(Gilman 2) her world is like world seeing things enclosure it would’ve hidden her anger away then by showing it off. If she would have shown it, she would have been in a series of actions which would probably have led only to deeper depression And insanity. Gilman argues that in writing this short novel story, as she says she didn’t want “to drive people crazy but to save people from being driven crazy”(Gilman 3). By focusing on the purpose, Gilman overlooks her deeper problem of the theme and was established by her creative skills, unlike her other short novels.
