The Yellow Wallpaper by Charlotte Perkins Gilman

“The Yellow Wallpaper” by Charlotte Perkins Gilman is about a woman who has really bad mental disorder and mental instability. Gilman makes the reader to keep reading the story because of the action which it happens during the woman’s hallucinations. Her husband, who is her physician, makes her to stand in home. I think the husband should do a different treatment because it is not good to isolate people from society. Many people, who are isolated, become more with mental instability. As a result, the woman imagines things that she only can see because she is out from the really world. Also, I understand that her husband wants her to get better. However, he should let her go somewhere that she gives the reality where she lives. Some people think that the best get to fix psychological problems is by isolating people. I tend to see this idea wrong because sometimes people do not get better when they are alone in empty room. These people become worse and have several problems. Like this woman in story, she imagines that she see a woman and yellow wallpaper. Narrator’s tells in here, “And I’ll tell you why-privately –I’ve seen her!.” She is telling to her family that she has a woman which is weird for the people the surround her. We can see that people imagine things, sounds, or even humans when they are in metal instability. Here is another example of her instability, “Still I will proudly declare that there is something queer about it. There is something strange about the house–I can feel it. These words make the reader to final understand that she has more the one problem in here mind.

When I read the story, I feel sorry for this woman and her husband because it is hard to have several problems in the mind.
