Description

It is regarded as an important early work of Americanfeminist literature, illustrating attitudes in the 19th century toward women's physical and mental health. Presented in the first person, the story is a collection of journal entries written by a woman (Jane) whose physician husband (John) has confined her to the upstairs bedroom of a house he has rented for the summer.

    This short novella has too many unanswered questions. It's a slightly scary book because of the mysteriousness of it. Is the lady speaking to the 'dead paper' sane at first and then slowly spirals into madness; or was she insane from the very start? And is the speaker the woman who is the said wife of 'John'; or the creeping woman in the wallpaper?!? ARGH! it's epicly frustrating however the book does fulfil it's main purpose: An insight to what women in the 18th-19th century had to go through to cure their 'slight hysteria' (post natal depression) due to the arrogance of the men at the time. A must read! (But the full effect of it hits you after a second or third thorough read)
