From the beginning , I think this story is mysterious. It is because the headline was named

"The Yellow Wallpaper". Because of this , I conjecture the writer how to bescribe a wallpaper. Anyway,

I think it seem to be "Paul's Case". It is because I know a lot of vocabulary and I could understander the

meaning , in a meanwhile.

At first, I want to talk the narrator is so unlucky woman, in my opinion. It is because many people

cannot underatand her, on sometimes. For example,"I sometimes fancy that in my condition if I had

less opposition and more society and stimulus--but John says the very worst thing I can do is to think

about my condition, and I confess it always makes me fell bad. So I will let it alone and talk about the

house."another is "John does not know how much I really suffer. He knows there is no reason to suffer

and that satisfies him." So I think she lives in the world so lonely.

Moreover, the plot is quite special. For example, Jennie has an inexplicable look, and the

narrator may be better in the evening when her husband is here, but it is wore in the morning when

her husband is away.So i think strange and humorous. By the way, I think the figure had a different

kind of behave. For example, Jennie is a strange people as she said that the paper stained everything

it touched and she wanted to sleep with the marrator etc.

In addition, the setting is good because the writer could describe an awful, special about the smell

.It is because it hover in the dining--room, skulk in the parlo, hid in the hall, lay in wait for narrator on the

stair. So I think the smell is very tiresome and perplex. In addition, the writer could write an environment so

perfect and I like.

About the character, I think that the writer is different from between to the other writer before I have

read. It is because she had a nervous breakdown in 1885. Thus, she uses a narrator to introduce herself,

in my opinion. However, when I was reading on I think a narrator is not nervous, and I think this story is

want to tell something. It is opposition and more society tradition as the narrator usually afraid to talk

about her mind to her husband.

Finally, I do not why the key is down by the front door under a plantain leaf, and why shoule that

man have fainted, and what a relationship with the heirs and coheirs.
