“The Yellow Wallpaper”: Subjugation of Women.
Charlotte Perkins Gilman’s short story, “The Yellow Wallpaper”, can be viewed through several prisms: as a Gothic tale, as a tragic narrative, as a horror story, as a psychological thriller. However, whatever be the view adopted, there can be little doubt that the story is, first and foremost, “one that offers the detailed and chilling account of a woman's entrapment, defeat, and movement toward madness--one caused by patriarchy,” (Hume,ebscohost.com).
