First published in 1892, Charlotte Perkins Gilman's semi-autobiographical story The Yellow Wallpaper is her best known work. Written from the perspective of a woman suffering post-partum psychosis, it draws the listener into a world which is both terrifying and fascinating, where strange events occur and where even the wallpaper takes on a sinister and creepy significance.

The narration and language are masterful, but it is the way the listener is invited to empathise and almost experience the mental illness first hand which make a lasting impression.

    " I read this back in my Gothic Literature course in college. I loved it then and I love it now. This short story is a wonderful commentary of what was considered to be a woman's role in the 1890s and the frailty of the human psyche. "

    " Another book where "liked/disliked" doesn't really match up to how much impact the book had. I didn't really like it, but it stuck with me. Being trapped in your room with nothing but this horrible yellow wallpaper to look at, and feeling your sanity slip. "

    " Very interesting perspective on how women were treated back then.....LOVED TO DEATH? "

    " Love this one! It's little wonder that this work always seems to make it into American Lit anthologies. As someone who can quite literally feel her sanity slipping away at times...it's nice to see what's in store for me :) "
