Description:

An analysis of "The Yellow Wallpaper" by Charlotte Perkins Gilman, showing how attitudes of male dominated society drove women mad. The central issue is power and control in the marriage relationship as the husband adds to his wife's growing madness.

From the Paper:

"The husband, John, in The Yellow Wallpaper contributes to his wife's descent into madness simply by being himself, and treating her as most men of those times treated their wives. This story by Charlotte Perkins Gilman was written in 1892 when the majority of men believed strongly that women were weak and inferior and needed care and guidance from their husbands. The central issue is power and control, especially in the marriage relationship. The Yellow Wallpaper is skillfully constructed by Gilman to show how the attitudes of male dominated society could drive women mad."
