The Yellow Wallpaper was written by Charlotte Perkins Gilman and first published in 1892. It is a gothic-style short story that explores themes of despair, helplessness, and insanity (download a free copy of The Yellow Wallpaper PDF by clicking the button below). The story is based on Charlotte Perkins Gilman’s own experiences with postnatal depression. Just like the narrator in The Yellow Wallpaper, she was also prescribed “rest cure”. Her doctor, Weir Mitchell, is actually mentioned by name in the narrator’s story as well. “Rest cure” was very detrimental to Charlotte and it proved far more damaging to her than good.
