  1. 1. How would you describe John?
    I would describe John as a lovely and caring husband that want to protects his wife and kid to much.

    2. What is his occupation?
    He’s a scientist, but apparently also knows a great deal about the body and calls himself a doctor.

    3. How would you describe the narrator (berättaren)?
    The narrator could be described in two different way. One where she is a psychopath and sees everything in her own way, for example that John is her real man but really she lives on a home for people with mental disorders. The more normal way to describe her would be to say that she is a women who lived at a time where they didn’t have any rights and her husband made her believe she were sick to ”protect” her.

    4. Why do you think she is forbidden to ’work’? And why is work put with quotation marks?
    I would say that the ”work” they meant were more like stuff a housewife does then going and working in a mine. John seems like a person with a need of power which is probably a lot more then the normal person. He also seems manipulative so he can get exactly what he wants from people, like the narrator which he want to keep as a trophy wife and not love her like a partner.

    5. How does John treat the narrator?
    John treats her in a good way to manipulate her, but as told he always had somewhat of a angry face behind his happy and helping face.

    6. How would you describe the wallpaper in the old nursery?
    A yellow wallpaper with much details that were somehow ripped a part by a woman.

    7. Why, do you think, does the narrator feel so ill?
    Because she is manipulated by her husband.

    8. What is so strange about the wallpaper?
    I feel that’s the narrators only safe heaven where she feels not manipulated and safe to be her own.

    9. How would you describe the narrator’s and John’s relationship?
    Like the rest of the questions, were manipulatively where she feels a strong loving affection where he sees her as a object and not a person to love.

    10. What does she see in the pattern by moonlight? How do you interpret what she sees?
    She sees a round object which spins and make har dizzy. The first thing that comes in to mind is the spinning black and white circle which makes the victim manipulated by the person behind the circle/wheel.

    11. How do you explain the narrator’s deteriorating condition?
    The worst kind of sicknesses are of course the deadly ones, but I would rather die knowing what is going on in my head, then have some kind of sickness in your mind like dementia or depression, which I would say is more closely connected to her ”sickness” then a physical one.

    12. What happens in the end, do you think? What (if any) deeper meaning do you see to the story?
    The only real way I can see is that she is trying to hurt herself and has locked herself in the nursery to be hanged. This last part is the most confusing thing I’ve read and it’s really hard to see something out of this, maybe that you shouldn’t treat women as dolls or objects but as people.

  2. 1. John is a very careful human. He tries to do things without stirring up drama and emotions. He is also very straight forward. He doesn’t believe in anything he can’t see and there’s no proof of. His faith in supernatural things are minimal, if not non existent.

    with quotation marks? I think they mean any physically or mentally straining activities, and I think she isnt allowed to work because of her weak condition.

    John treats her kind of nice, except the fact that he disregards her opinion on her sickness because he is more educated about the subject, he doesnt care to listen to it.

    creepy and weird, the kind that will make you look at it and keep looking until you cant stand it anymore and have to go somewhere else cause youre feeling sick.

    7.

    – As I see it both of them are happy with each other and are in love but because this is in another century things are different, the women in the house doesn’t really do much for the family. So she is at home and not doing what her passion really is. Because John doesn’t want her to get hurt more she forbids her to go out or write with her passion thus leading to a toxicated relationship and a manipulative one.
    10.
    What does she see in the pattern by moonlight? How do you interpret what she sees?
    – I think she sees another woman trapped behind the patterns of the wallpaper but when it is moonlight something triggers and the figure starts to walk around or perhaps to be more accurate, to creep.
    11.
    How do you explain the narrator’s deteriorating condition?
    – She is in a deep depression. Not being able to do what she wants and being forced to be inside all day, lying on the bed. For the doctors this might be a good solution to what problem she had but in reality it just worsens it, leading to greater deppression.
    12.
    What happens in the end, do you think? What (if any) deeper meaning do you see to the story
    – The narrator has stripped off all the wallpaper in the room and is now creeping around when her man walks in to the room and she starts saying she is liberated and she is finally free. The man faints perhaps because this was too horrifying for him to experience. The narrator keeps creeping around, stepping on his body. This is a really creepy ending for me and there might be some deep meanings to it all. First of, She is saying she is free and liberated. But is she really liberated considering she is walking around the room without stop or has she gone insane from all the pressure from the wallpaper. Is she still the same person as the narrator or has the figure in the wallpaper possesed her body? Is this freedom for the narrator or is this freedom for the figure now living inside her body.

  7. 1. I would describe John as a bit overprotective and confident in his knowledge, which makes him not listen to his wife’s opinions, since he knows best.

    2. He’s a physician.

    3. I would describe her as very self-conscious of her condition. She’s nervous and puts a lot of faith in her husband. However she does not always agree to how he views her condition and how it should be treated.

    4. She is forbidden to do any kind of work because of her condition. In this case they forbid her from doing any kind of manual labor, at all. Which is why it’s put in quotation marks.

    5. He treats her almost like a child. A child that is sick and has to get better. And is therefore not allowed to anything except lie in the bed and get better.

  8. 1. John seems wise and little over protective with hes way of saying to the narrator that hes making the right choose for her by being in the big room instead of taking a another room with less windows in.

    2.John is a doctor or rather a physician.

    3.The narrator seems to be having a lot in her mind and are feeling rather alone cause she doesn’t have anything to do while John is away. When you are reading her thoughts and action you understand that she is a ill person and needs help from a physician that john is.

    4.Cause she’s weak and can’t stress her out by making her exhausted.

    5.John treats the narrator like a patient but it seems that he only is kind and wants to give the narrator love and want to make her healthy again.

    6.The yellow wallpaper seems to have some lady heads that move around depending on the light and it seems to have a figure in between the heads.

    7.I seems that the narrator where ill in the body before but after having a lot of alone time to think she went crazy in her mind.

    8.The strange thing about the wallpaper seems to be that the lady head is moving and are creeping around on the wallpaper.

  9. 1. How would you describe John?

    John is the husband of the narrator. He cares about her dearly, but because of how high he holds himself, he fails to see what his wife wants and believes himself being in the right at all times.

    2. What is his occupation?

    John is a physician, a doctor.

    3. How would you describe the narrator (berättaren)?

    A young woman with an imaginative and creative mind. A writer or an artist. But at the moment, due to a depression, she is moved to a mansion for treatment by her husband John.

    4. Why do you think she is forbidden to ’work’? And why is work put

    with quotation marks?

    Her physician husband John firmly believes that the best way to treat the narrator is to rid her of any creativity and fancies. Her ’work’ being writing or artistry is something that requires a creative mind, which John will not allow. And the reason ’work’ is put with quotation marks is that women didn’t necessarily work during that time and it was generally the men who were allowed to do work.

    7. Why, do you think, does the narrator feel so ill?

    The narrator probably has some form of depression relating to being the mother to a newborn child.

    2. His occupation is being physician.

    3. The narrator is a woman who’s crazy and sees everything in her own way.

    4. think she is forbidden to ’work’ because she has depression. The word ”work” is put with quotation marks because handwriting and utilize was as hard as ”working” for the narrator.

    5. He threat her good because he trying to manipulate her.

    6. The wallpaper has eyes, it’s yellow and the pantern is changing in certain of time.

    7. Narrator feels so ill because she maybe manipulated by her husband.

    8. The panterns is changing when the sun shows up.

    9. Their relationship is good, they love each other. Until, the narrator gone crazy.

    10. She sees a woman behind bars. I interpret this as her low status. She wants to get out of the low status and not being locked behind the bars.

    11. She is getting closer to the insanity and she can’t cure it.

    12. By the end of the story, the narrator is insane, convinced that there are many creeping women around and that she herself has become one of them. She creeps around the room. When John breaks into the locked room and sees the full horror of the situation, he faints in the doorway, so that the narrator has to creep over him every time.
