  • The Yellow Wallpaper And A Jury Of Her Peers

    The men’s inability to empathize with women’s situations and their ignorance to the women’s values cause female characters from both stories to lose important aspects of their lives and personalities, resulting in a deterioration of their states of mind. In “The Yellow Wallpaper,” Jane’s husband John, in a poor attempt to “cure” her, restricts her freedom and puts her on a “scheduled prescription for each hour of the day” and “hardly lets [her] stir without special direction” (Gilman 75). Despite Jane’s protests, John forbids her from performing any activities as part of his “cure” and continuously tries to help her heal by taking away her freedom, exhibiting a fundamental misunderstanding and unwillingness to listen to her feminine opinions. Jane also admits that she “did write for a while in spite of [him]; but it does exhaust [her] a good deal -- having to be so sly about it” (75). Her need to be “sly” and “exhausted” contradicts her usually complacent behavior, indicating a change in Jane’s personality due to the restrictions placed upon her. This loss of freedom causes Jane to lose pieces of her old personality and eventually drives her to insanity. Minnie Wright in “A Jury of Her Peers” suffers similar losses. After marrying John Wright, many aspects of Minnie’s personality and lifestyle were molded to fit her husband. She became docile and quiet as her personality changed drastically under the new oppressive environment of marriage. As Mrs. Hale searches the Wright…
