The Yellow Wallpaper is a journal of one woman’s downward spiral into depression and madness. The narrator spends her time locked in a room with bars on the windows and a nailed down bed. Liked a caged animal, backed into a corner, she attempts to fight back. Her fight for and with the woman behind the wallpaper, symbolizes her battle for independence, her struggle to survive. By freeing the woman behind the wallpaper she achives independance, but at what price? By the end she has traded her sanity for her freedom.
