Imprisoned by Society in The Yellow Wallpaper by Charlotte Perkins Gilm

The Yellow Wallpaper  Imprisoned by Society     Charlotte Perkins Gilmans, The Yellow Wallpaper is the story of a womans descent into derangement as the result of being isolated as a form of treatment when suffering from postpartum depression.  On a larger scale, Gilman is also telltale(a) the story of how women were kept prisoners by the confines of the society of her m and the penalties these women incurred when they attempted to break free from these confines.             In the beginning of the story, the narrator, whose name is never divulg... ...s a charming look into the mind of a woman slipping deeper and deeper into mental illness.  It is also, however, clearly a statement by Gilman of the absurd confines society places on the women of her time and the extreme consequences that befell the women who attempted to break free of those confines.
