The Yellow Wallpaper Charlotte Perkins Gilman Re imagined by Starr Pember
It is very rare that ordinary people like John and myself rent ancestral halls for the summer. A colonial mansion, a hereditary estate, I would say a haunted house. (p.1)
It is a big, airy room, the windows were barred and there are rings and things in the walls.The paint and paper look as if a boys' school had used it. It is stripped off -- the paper in great patches all around the head of my bed, about as far as I can reach, and in a great place on the other side of the room low down. I never saw a worse paper in my life. The color is repellent, almost revolting; a smoldering unclean yellow. (p.6)
There is a recurrent spot where the pattern lolls like a broken neck and two bulbous eyes stare at you upside down. I get positively angry with the impertinence of it and the everlastingness. Up and down and sideways they crawl, and those absurd, unblinking eyes are everywhere. (p.12)
I cry at nothing, and cry most of the time....... I walk a little in the garden or down that lovely lane, sit on the porch under the roses. (p.17)
The figure in the wall is like a woman stooping down and creeping about behind that pattern. I don't like it a bit. (p.23)
I wish John would take me away from here!
