Description - The Yellow Wallpaper And Selected Writings by Charlotte Perkins Gilman

Based on the author s own experiences, 'The Yellow Wallpaper' is the chilling tale of a woman driven to the brink of insanity by the rest cure prescribed after the birth of her child.

Isolated in a crumbling colonial mansion, in a room with bars on the windows, the tortuous pattern of the yellow wallpaper winds its way into the recesses of her mind. Charlotte Perkins Gilman was America s leading feminist intellectual of the early twentieth century. In addition to her masterpiece, 'The Yellow Wallpaper', this new collection includes a selection of her best short fiction and extracts from her autobiography.
