By Charlotte Perkins Gilman.

A woman is taken to the country by her doctor husband in order to cure her of an unnamed illness - post-natal depression - after the birth of a child.

Instructed to have total rest and emptiness of mind and avoid stimulating company, the woman sinks into a still-deeper depression.

Alone in the yellow-wallpapered nursery of a rented house, she descends into madness.

Jane....Charlotte Emerson
