Should have sued because of slander.

Dock, '''But One Expects That': Charlotte Perkins Gilman's 'The Yellow Wallpaper' and the Shifting Light of Scholarship'' -- Jerz EL312 (Literary Criticism)

Though he "never acknowledged it, " he must have received it, for she notes that "[m]any years later [she] was told that the great specialist had admitted to friends of his that he had altered his treatment of neurasthenia since reading The Yellow Wallpaper" (Keesey 479).

So Edgar Snyder should have been around for Dr. Mitchell (or some attorney who handles civil cases) and probably would have won his case against Gilman. I didn't get much from this, didn't really follow the whole thing, I was lost. But I enjoyed the bit about the Dr. Mitchell switching up his treatment, so is that intertextuality. I keep seeing intertextuality, are you happy Erin?
