A classic of early American feminist literature, first published in 1892, Charlotte Perkins Gilman’s haunting short story follows a Victorian woman’s descent into madness.  Confined in the attic of an old, dilapidated mansion, as part of a “rest cure” prescribed by her husband, “Jane” begins to see strange forms creeping around behind the torn and ragged yellow wallpaper in the room.
