The Southeast Campus Library is pleased to be a host site from August 26 through October 6 for The Literature of Prescription: Charlotte Perkins Gilman and “The Yellow Wall-Paper.” This exhibition was developed and produced by the National Library of Medicine, National Institutes of Health.
Charlotte Perkins Gilman’s semiautobiographical short story “The Yellow Wall-Paper” is a classic of feminist literature. Gilman wrote the story about a woman who slowly goes insane from the rest cure after her own experience using the treatment for her depression. The rest cure was advocated by the famous physician, Dr. Silas Weir Mitchell, who prescribed it for a variety of emotional disorders in his female patients. It involved complete bed rest, social isolation, and prohibition against intellectual stimulation. After growing steadily more despondent after three months of the rest cure, Gilman chose to end both the treatment and her unhappy marriage. She wrote “The Yellow Wall-Paper” to “save people from being driven crazy” and became a well-known writer and speaker on women’s rights. The exhibit has an accompanying web site with the full text of the short story, a biography of the author, and medical literature from the nineteenth century at http://www.nlm.nih.gov/literatureofprescription/.
