If only she would have been out of the room more where she was not secluded to only one area of the entire house she may have improved a lot more. Especially the area with the hideous wallpaper! With her already creative, for lack of better words, imagination and the confinement to room, it was a recipe for disaster. She not only see the wallpaper all the time but the paper begins to do things. The paper begins to shake and she can see people throughout the wall and it comes to the point where she completely loses it. I'm saying if John or her sister had only kept her out of the room more her condition would have improved dramatically and she would not have been drawn to insanity. At least not by the wallpaper.

My My, The Yellow Wallpaper
After reading the Yellow Wallpaper and then seeing Barry's post I'm in agreement with his statements. In the Yellow Wallpaper we are spoken to by the narrator who is thought to be crazy. Her husband confines her to the bedroom because he thinks that this will aid in improving her situation. Totally wrong. In the beginning of the story the narrator speaks of the beautiful garden and greenhouses; then as the story goes on she only speaks about the big room with the ugly wallpaper. The confinement to the room is the downfall for the narrator.
