Gilman: The Yellow Wallpaper, I Want to Creep too

| | Comments (1)

"I kept on creeping just the same...'I've got out at last...in spite of you and Jane.  And I've pulled off most of the paper, so you can't put me back"  (Gilman 538).  I want so badly to do this with school, I am so very tired of walking in academic circles, learning the same things over and over again.  I wish it would be so easy to pull away the paper that is blindfolding me.  Maybe I am in the wrong, maybe I am the one not conforming to society, but who says I should, certainly not the shadow on the wall.

I like the way you write, James. Your description of your reaction to the creeping woman is poetic, and I feel that I can relate to what you are saying. You do a nice job of linking what we read to class to a personal experience that many of us, as students, share.
