The Yellow Wallpaper
From the paper:
?Even in the beginning of the story, the narrator understands and admits on ?dead paper? that ?perhaps that is one reason I do not get well faster.? John describes his wife?s condition as ?temporary nervous depression ? a slight hysterical tendency.? The narrator explains, ?John does not know how much I really suffer. He knows there is no reason to suffer, and that satisfies him.? And as early as the first page of this story, the narrator admits, ?You see he does not believe I am sick!?
