The story begins with the narrator telling us about how she has rented a mansion for a vacation with her lover John. She finds it strange, they were able to get it at all. Moreover, she can’t believe the cheap price. She goes on to tell us that she is sick, yet her husband John is a physician and he can’t find any sickness. He believes that she’s suffering from a temporary depression and slight hysteria. She’s a little frustrated since none of her family believed her over John’s medical expertise. On the other hand, her brother gives the same diagnosis as John. She’s forbidden from working or reading which she thinks would actually help her by taking her mind off of it.
Oh well, she figures since she’s in such a beautiful mansion. The gardens are unbelievable like out of an English fairy tale. She’s taking constant medication to treat her condition. She wanted to stay on the ground floor with roses outside but that was impossible instead they’re living in the nursery at the top of the mansion inside. The room is a dull yellow wallpaper that has faded and torn. John is a working doctor and goes out during the day to tend to his patients.
They also have a maid and a child Jane. The narrator stresses that she can’t be with her baby. At first, John said that he would repaper the wallpaper thinking about what hard work it would be. He changed his mind, he tells Jane to ignore it. Jane can’t even go see her cousin Henry and Julia because John thinks that our mind is so frazzled that it couldn’t take it. Then Jane gets a little creeped out, she starts explaining that she sees a woman in the pattern of the Yellow Wallpaper. Their lease is up in three weeks so John doesn’t wanna leave early. The wallpaper continues to creep Jane out.
Jane is completely transfixed on the wallpaper. She notes that the wallpaper changes as the light changes. Jane appears to be getting more and more paranoid. She says that she is trusting John less and less also she saw John, as well as Jeannie looking at the paper one time.

Jane thinks that John is pretending to be loving and kind. She thinks that the yellow wallpaper is affecting the others minds. It’s their last day at this house and Jane has started ripping the wallpaper. She tells the maid that she’s going to lie down but only so that she’s left alone. Then she locks the door and throws the key down on the front path towards the end. She wanders out loud whether the creepy woman had come out of the wallpaper as I did.
