The Yellow Wallpaper" is a 6,000-word brief tale through American author Charlotte Perkins Gilman, first released in January 1892 in New England journal. it's considered as a massive early paintings of yankee feminist literature, illustrating attitudes within the nineteenth century towards women's actual and psychological health.

The tale is written within the first individual as a sequence of magazine entries. The narrator is a lady whose husband — a doctor — has limited her to the upstairs bed room of a home he has rented for the summer season. She is forbidden from operating and has to conceal her magazine entries from him in order that she will recover from what he has clinically determined as a "temporary fearful melancholy — a mild hysterical tendency;" a analysis universal to ladies in that interval. The home windows of the room are barred, and there's a gate around the most sensible of the steps, permitting her husband to regulate her entry to the remainder of the house.

The tale illustrates the influence of confinement at the narrator's psychological future health, and her descent into psychosis. With not anything to stimulate her, she turns into obsessed by way of the trend and colour of the room's wallpaper.
