“The Yellow Wallpaper”: Liberation in Madness
November 10, 2002
Thesis: In “The Yellow Wallpaper,” Jane’s role conflict as a result patriarchal oppression is resolved when she foregoes the roles of mother, and woman for that of madwoman.
II. Hysteria was as common in the Victorian era as its definition was broad, and treatment narrow.
a. Hysteria was a common ailment, epidemic in ambitious women.
b. Dr. S. Weir Mitchell’s rest cure was commonly applied in these cases.
III. Sufferers of hysteria and neurasthenia are unable or unwilling to resolve their role conflict as women, mothers, and whatever else the affected aspires to be.
a. The prescribed role as woman is in conflict with the expectations of motherhood.
b. Jane is conflicted with her roles as a young wife, a new mother, and a writer.
IV. Jane is trapped in her unhappiness by societal rules that fuel her resentment for John, the baby, and Jennie, who each reinforce society’s expectations of her.
a. Jane’s conflict with John is the core of her unhappiness.
i. John is controlling and condescending, just as he has been taught he should be as the husband, father, and head of household.

i. Jane has conflicted opinions about children in general, but especially about her own child.
ii. Jane is resentful of the baby for being the catalyst for her current state.

i. The bulk of her journal entries occur after she has been there for several weeks, her credibility damaged as it becomes clear she is quickly plummeting into full madness.
ii. The frequency of her journal entries increase along with the damage to the wallpaper, suggesting that perhaps the wallpaper itself is her medium.
b. Jane progressively destroys the room, displaying increasing violent urges and decreasing self-control.
i. She reports on increasing damage as her conflict with John deepens.
ii. She does not take responsibility for the damage, blaming it on nonexistent children.
c. Jane joins the image of herself inside the wallpaper, abandoning the damaged self for the new one.
The Victorian era was governed by a system of rules for behavior and gender roles. Much has changed over the past century for women, largely owed to the women who challenged this system, however something in Charlotte Perkins Gilman’s “The Yellow Wallpaper,” continues to ring true with women today. The struggles over role conflict are possibly greater for women today because of the options that are now available, but the basic challenges of “how to be both a person and a wife and mother; how to live with acceptable passivity in a patriarchal culture while yet being aggressive enough to stay alive; and how to be both “good” and sensual, supportive and necessarily selfish, and, above all, sane” remain (Wagner-Martin). The theme of violent rebellion in the face of patriarchal oppression is common in literature about women. Miss Emily in William Faulkner’s “A Rose for Miss Emily” was persecuted in gossip for living a solitary life as mandated by her father’s strict social rules. He damaged her ability to have relationships to the point that she murdered her husband and this was not discovered until her death. Zora Neale Hurston’s narrator in “Sweat” suffers socially sanctioned mental and physical abuse at the hand of her husband. She is persecuted by the townspeople for her husband’s actions, but knows it would be worse to leave him completely. She finds her salvation when she chooses not to help her dying husband. For her, it is better to watch the man die than to leave. Gilman’s narrator, Jane, in “The Yellow Wallpaper” cannot resolve her conflict over roles imposed upon her by her oppressive patriarchal culture, so she foregoes the roles of wife, mother, and woman to become a madwoman.
Hysteria was as common in the Victorian era as its definition was broad, and

A Time of Change A Time of Change The enlightenment was a great time of change in both Europe and America. Some of the biggest changes, however, happened in the minds of many and in the writings of many philosophers. These included some of the beliefs of David Hume, Jean Jacques Rousseau, Immanuel Kant, and Francois Voltaire. Writers during this time focused on optimism, which is the opinion to do everything for the best (Chaney 119), and the best for these philosophers was to stretch the minds of the ordinary.

Animal ExperimentationAnimal Experimentation Introduction Animal experimentation has been a part of biomedical and behavioral research for several millennia; experiments with animals were conducted in Greece over 2,000 years ago.

Is The Death Penalty JustIs The Death Penalty Just? Is the death penalty just? Politicians, lobbyists, philosophers, and experts from all walks of life continuously debate this controversial subject. Has any one of these individuals listened to the rest of us? The answer in many cases is no.

In the case of capital punishment, various
SocialismSocialism The term socialism is commonly used to refer both to an ideology--a comprehensive set of beliefs or ideas about the nature of human society and its future desirable state--and to a state of society based on that ideology.

The Importance of the PressThe Importance of the Press The newspaper is a powerful medium. It is powerful because it has the ability to influence the way that people view the world, as well as their opinion of what they see. In peaceful times (or in times of oppression, for sometimes they can appear to be happening at the same moment) the press is usually one of the instruments used by the state in order to maintain the status quo. However, during times of political unrest it is often the press who becomes the major antag

If I were asked who my favourite Western Zen philosopher was without a If I were asked who my favourite Western Zen philosopher was, without any hesitation, I would declare it to be Henry David Thoreau. Although he knew in translation the religious writings of the Hindus, it may be unlikely that Henry David Thoreau ever studied the teachings of the Zen Masters. Even then, the insight within his own personal writings would irrefutably make him master of his own temple. The wisdom found within Thoreau's Walden can be clarified through Zen Buddhist beliefs and ideas
The use of capital punishment has been a permanent fixture in society The use of capital punishment has been a permanent fixture in society since the earliest civilizations and continues to be used as a form of punishment in countries today.

SocratesSocrates Question 1 Explain Socrates’ claim that the crucial qualification for ruling is not wanting to rule. What is the role of philosophy in producing this qualification? Socrates first introduces philosophy as a qualification for rulers in Book V. It is here that he formulates the idea of philosophers as king, or kings as philosophers. Socrates feels that this is the most controversial idea he has put forward, the third and greatest wave of paradox. However, one could consider his theories o
