Analysis of Charlotte Perkins Gilman’s “The Yellow Wallpaper.”
Write a 3-page analysis (6-7 full paragraphs) of Charlotte Perkins Gilman’s “The Yellow Wallpaper.” You must draw on the text to support your thesis, using quotes as well as paraphrasing in every paragraph. You must organize your essay around a thesis that you identify in the first paragraph. Your thesis must focus how the author created the meaning that you understand from the story through either point-of-view, conflict, or theme. Your discussion in the body paragraphs must discuss three other literary elements that support your thesis. · Setting (where the story takes place) · Characterization (how the character is “built”) · Structure (beginning, middle, and end of the conflict; how does the author get the narrator from the identification of the conflict through the climax, and on to the resolution?) · Conflict (what is it? When/what is the highest point of tension in the story? Is the conflict resoloved/How is it resolved?) · Point-of-View (How does the point-of-view work for the power or success of the story? What’s good about it? What are its limits? What does it not show or explain?) · Theme (What’s the big idea behind this story? What’s the lesson for HUMANITY—not just for the narrator? Don’t use we, us, our, you.) · Style (What is the narrative style? How does it affect the impact of the story?) Use proper MLA format for in-text citation and Works Cited.
