Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.  

This Penguin Classic is performed by Jessica Brown Findlay, Jamael Westman and Sheila Atim.   

The color is hideous enough, and unreliable enough, and infuriating enough, but the pattern is torturing. 

Written with barely controlled fury after she was confined to her room for 'nerves' and forbidden to write, Gilman's pioneering feminist horror story scandalised 19th century readers with its portrayal of a woman who loses her mind because she has literally nothing to do.
