Mackenzie Cope Cope 1 March 19, 2008 Informal Response #2 In Charlotte Gillman’s “The Yellow Wallpaper” the narrator is confined to a dreary room in a depressing house. The barred windows and peeling wallpaper stare back at her through her empty days and lonely nights. Her husband acts as thought his wife is nothing more than a child. As he “treats” her mental instability, she slips further and further into her depression and insanity, slowly losing touch with the world that she is being held captive from. The short story is based on the life of the author during the time of her depression, and during the struggle for woman’s rights. As an activist in the first wave of the woman’s movement, Gillman spoke out against the injustice placed on woman during her life, and her passion is present in “The Yellow Wallpaper”. The couple rented an “ancestral hall” for the summer, a “colonial mansion” and even alludes to being a “haunted house”.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
