Since its publication in 1892 Charlotte Perkins Gilman's The Yellow Wall paper has always been recognized as a powerful statement about the victimization of a woman whose neurasthenic condition is completely misdiagnosed mistreated and misunderstood leaving her to face insanity alone as a prisoner in her own bedroom Never before however has the story itself been portrayed as victimizedIn this first critical edition of Gilman's The Yellow Wall paper accompanied by contemporary reviews and previously unpublished letters Julie Bates Dock examines the various myth frames that have been used to legitimize Gilman's story The editor discusses how modern feminist critics' readings and misreadings of the available documents uphold a set This is absolutely my favorite version of Gilman's well known short story The Yellow Wall Paper While okay not many people beyond literary academics are going to be interested in the differences between Julie Dock's authoritative text as the back cover reads it also contains her exhaustive research into the history of the piece and the various twists and turns the piece's framework has undergone from its initial and allegedly scandalous publication to its revival in the 60s which isn't as clear cut as it seems like it should be I'd read the short story in a basic literature course which didn't stray much beyond the standard understanding of the text as a feminist outcry against the tyrannical expectations of housewifery but I gotta say Gilman's personal vendetta with her psychiatrist was way interesting This book includes snippets of Gilman's diary manuscript log entries and correspondence as well as contemporaneous reviews of the work
