Cycle 2014-2015: “Great Short Stories from Lesser Known Authors, Lesser Known Short Stories from Great Authors”.

Reading of the month: “The Yellow Wallpaper” Charlotte Perkins Gilman.

“First published in 1892, “The Yellow Wallpaper” is written as the secret journal of a woman who, failing to relish the joys of marriage and motherhood, is sentenced to a country rest cure. Though she longs to write, her husband and doctor forbid it, prescribing instead complete passivity. In the involuntary confinement of her bedroom de ella, the hero creates a reality of her own de ella beyond the hypnotic pattern of the faded yellow wallpaper–a pattern that has come to symbolize her own imprisonment de ella.
