9781558611580: The Yellow Wall-Paper

First published in 1892, The Yellow Wall-Paper is written as the secret journal of a woman who, failing to relish the joys of marriage and motherhood, is sentenced to a country rest cure. Though she longs to write, her husband and doctor forbid it, prescribing instead complete passivity. Narrated with superb psychological and dramatic precision, this short but powerful masterpiece has the heroine create a reality of her own within the hypnotic pattern of the faded yellow wall-paper of her bedroom—a pattern that comes to symbolize her own imprisonment.

This key women's studies text by a pivotal first-wave feminist writer, lecturer, and activist (1860-1935) is reprinted as it first appeared in New England Magazine in 1892, and contains the essential essay on the author's life and work by pioneering Gilman scholar Elaine R. Hedges.

About the Author :

Charlotte Perkins Gilman (1860-1935) was a feminist writer, lecturer, and activist, and is best known for The Yellow Wall-Paper. Her many other works include the science fiction trilogy Herland and Women and Economics.

From AudioFile :

In 1892 an unnamed woman passes the slow days of summer writing down her innermost thoughts while convalescing. Her observations focus on the strange effects of the peeling, fading, yellow wallpaper in her bedroom. The Spencer Library has created a unique audio experience in this chilling tale with profound psychological and moral implications. Claudette Sutherland gives a remarkable performance. Her subtly expressive voice is so skillfully recorded that her soft intakes of breath have a desperate life of their own. The haunting beauty of Carol Nethen's original score can momentarily distract, but it supports more than it interferes, a tribute both to the composer and to the excellence of the recording standards. The listener is rewarded with a fully realized dramatic performance with a strong musical presence. C.T. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine

Description du livre Feminist Press at The City University of New York, United States, 1996. Paperback. État : New. New ed of 1892 ed. Language: English . Brand New Book. In the decades since the long-lost text of The Yellow Wall-Paper was rediscovered and reprinted by The Feminist Press, Charlotte Perkins Gilman s classic narrative of confinement and madness has become essential to the canon of North American literature. First published in 1892, The Yellow Wall-Paper is written as the secret journal of a woman who, failing to relish the joys of marriage and motherhood, is sentenced to a country rest cure to remedy her nervous condition - which is actually postpartum depression. Though she longs to write, her husband and doctor forbid it, prescribing instead complete passivity. Locked in her bedroom, the heroine creates a reality of her own beyond the hypnotic pattern of the faded yellow wallpaper - a pattern that has come to symbolize her own imprisonment. Narrated with superb psychological and dramatic precision, The Yellow Wall-Paper stands out not only for the imaginative authenticity with which it depicts one woman s descent into insanity, but also for the power of its testimony to the importance of freedom and self-empowerment for women.
