A perfect little creepy read for October. I loved the writing style and how we're getting deeper and depper into madness. Great!

I always mention The Yellow Wallpaper in my talks about WOMAN 99 since my narrator Charlotte is named in honor of the author. At a recent luncheon event at a women's club in Richmond, guess what color wallpaper they had in the ladies' room?

I reread it today. Just as amazing.

Fast novella. So glad I read it for it's historical significance. The forward by Maggie O'Farrell was as compelling as the novella. I listened to this on Scribd...I do not recommend the recording. The voice actor was off putting. Next time I will read the physical book.

Did you know that the New York Public Library posts whole novels in their #instagram stories?! They‘re beautifully illustrated too, like this mesmerizing rendition of the classic american short story about post natal/female/mental health struggles in a misogynist society. Well done, NYPL; and @Megara for pointing this out!

If you‘re looking for a good short read though, I would highly recommend The Yellow Wallpaper. It would work for the #booked2019 #publicdomain prompt too for those of you participating in that next year. 😄👍🏽

If you don‘t follow NYPL (New York Public Library) on Instagram you are seriously missing out! The Yellow Wallpaper is the second piece of literature that they have adapted for the Instagram stories feature (the first was Alice in Wonderland, which can still be viewed in the profile).

The graphics that go along with the text are really well designed.

Such a disturbing short story... chronicling a woman‘s descent into madness while being forced to convalesce for her ‘nervousness‘ by her all-knowing physician husband. So creepy and dark, but gorgeous prose. Her use of the word ‘creep‘ towards the end gives me the heebie-jeebies.

‘It is so pleasant to be out in this great room and creep around as I please!‘ 😱

This is a gripping tale of a woman struggling with mental illness but considering it was published in 1892, where women suffering from these issues were not taken seriously and were told performing their household duties and resting is the cure for it. The story itself is creepy and insightful from the beginning and gives us an idea of what it was like for women suffering from mental illness in that period. #popsugarreadingchallenge #pop18

sudi Reading this made me realise, that today when the world has progressed so much and women have come a long way, it's depresses me to think that there still instances when women have to face discrimination and things like mental illneses are taken lightly 1y

So, I‘m not sure I quite understood this story... I get that it‘s a woman slowly going mad and how her husband, a doctor, doesn‘t really try to help her.. just tells her to relax and not doing anything and that‘s how men always treated women back then, maybe. I‘m guessing that‘s it.. since it‘s so short..

I read this for a feministic classic for #booked2018

I had been wanting to read this classic short story for a long time, but just never had. It‘s only 2 episodes on @SerialReader (less than 15 minutes each), and worth the read. The narrator spends an increasing amount of time in a room with disturbing yellow wall paper. It has a strange print and is torn in strange ways, and she quickly becomes obsessed with it and the things she sees (in it? behind it?). 😱

MisterWhitaker One of my favorite short stories to teach! Makes it so easy to teach feminist lit criticism. 2y
tjwill @MisterWhitaker I bet! There are so many parts that beg to be analyzed through the feminist lens. Even just the use of “hysterical” at the beginning! 2y

OMG! Too creepy! A dreadful tale of a woman's descent into madness during a 3 week "curative" rest. I'm amazed such a short work (24 pages) can evoke such powerful emotion! This book was recommended to me years ago, but I am only getting to it now. I agree it's a must read--but not at night or when you're alone!

This is my 2nd book completed for Dewey's #readathon. Time to go back to my audioread of Redshirts by John Scalzi to clear my head.

True.
I don't get creeped out easily, but "The Yellow Wallpaper" made my skin crawl. It's one of the best weird short stories with a feminist aspect, probing into mental illness & Victorian mansplaining. It sucks that Charlotte Perkins Gilman had to write to the publisher like this.
That reply is gold & sums up the sexism perfectly, although I hope it's not the one CPG got, if she got one at all.
Read "TYW" on the Serial Reader app if you haven't!

Gezemice I have read it and it was creepy and well-written! That reply is so spot on. #sexism 2y

batsy TYW is perfectly executed and chilling. I loved it. How sad that she had to write that letter, though I shouldn't be surprised. On that note of writers and $, did you see this http://themillions.com/2017/09/edgar-allan-poe-broke-ass-freelancer.html 2y

rohit-sawant @batsy Sad but not surprised was exactly how I felt, too. I saw a documentary on Poe once, and they touched upon his struggle with poverty only briefly, but it wasn't anywhere near as comprehensive as that article. Thanks for sharing. It's heart-wrenching that someone who'd come to be hailed a literary icon had to suffer so on the financial front. 2y

Patronising much?! If I'd not been reading on my tablet I'd have launched it across the room in contempt!
Actually it's a good book. I decided to try Serial Reader because I wolf books down whole and I want to learn to pace myself. So far, so good.

Well that was a chilling story.

Quick read on #serialreader. A first hand account of a woman's descent into madness.
