Nonetheless, this peculiar work has received recognition and won the Hugo, as the most prestigious science fiction award; thus, having a frequent anthology both in main stream anthropology and science fiction.
On the other hand, the story “the yellow wallpaper” is actually a renowned short story. It is interesting to note that it was just recalled from the oblivion (Costello and Tucker 475).

Additionally, the “the yellow wallpaper” is a true story based on the author’s personal life experiences. Notably, the story is deliberately based on her debilitating and depression effects of her medical conditions and subsequent treatment (Costello and Tucker 474). The story “the yellow wallpaper” claims to “save people from being driven crazy.” In the same way, the story “The Ones Who Walked Away From Omelas” claims civilizations for the society it is addressing. However, an auditor of the Atlantic Monthly turned the story down claiming that it contained a start and unsettling content. In this case, both stories share a common negative publicity, in that, the classification of “The Ones Who Walked Away From Omelas” proved to be a challenge, and consequently, in the case of “the yellow wallpaper”, there is a claim that the story is a start that has unsettling content. Moreover, the story received a sentiment that it was “too terribly good to be printed.” However, following series of events on the same story, especially its discussion on the title “the Madwoman in the Attic,” led to its wide recognition and subsequent discussions within the American literature (Costello and Tucker 478).

In the story Tessie Hutchinson was selected to be stoned to death as a symbol of "the one" that must die for the sake of others. The town needed a scapegoat; someone to symbolize that a non-productive member of society has no place and therefore must be sacrificed.
As the story starts, the city residents are preparing for the summer festivals, and the society is exuberant as the feel of ecstasy and overall happiness is evident all over. In light of all this jubilation and general state of happiness for the city inhabitants, a child is held prisoner in a small dingy room within the city.
