SURNAME 3 actions depict how women can become powerless and subordinate to men in marriage. The result of John's ignorance leads the wife to fall deeper into depression, and she sees herself as the woman she portrayed to be caged in the yellow wallpaper. She quotes “Sometimes I think there are a great many women behind, and sometimes only one, and she crawls around fast, and her crawling shakes it all over. Then in the very ' bright spots, she keeps still, and in the very shady spots she just takes hold of the bars and shakes them hard” (Gilman 654). From the two narratives “Cathedral” and “The Yellow Paper”, seeking power has led both narrators worsening the relationship with their marriage partners. The narrators had a similar desire which is to be understood and listened to by their loved ones, but in the process, they end up destroying the affection which was lurking. Moreover, the narratives teach on the importance of sharing problems with companions and finding better ways to solve them to avoid trauma and depression.

    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.
