The Yellow Wallpaper - Charlotte Perkins Gilman,Elaine Hedges

It is the same woman, I know, for she is always creeping, and most women do not creep by daylight. 

 

Charlotte Perkins Gilman

 

Charlotte Perkins Gilman (born July 3, 1860) is best known for her short story, The Yellow Wallpaper, in which the narrator's journal entries document her psychotic break.

The Yellow Wallpaper
The Yellow Wallpaper - Charlotte Perkins Gilman 1892? Really? Damn, this was good. This is how short stories are suppose to be done. Creepy. Building dread. Subtle terror and growing madness. Excellent!

The Yellow Wall-Paper
The Yellow Wallpaper - Charlotte Perkins Gilman,Elaine Hedges

From the first page (and I think this gives a good idea of the story's direction):
"If a physician of high standing, and one's own husband, assures friends and relatives that there is really nothing the matter with one but temporary nervous depression,—a slight hysterical tendency,—what is one to do?"
Written in first person, this chronicled a wife's forced seclusion by her (physician) husband. John didn't want her to write, go outside, or do *anything.* This chronicles her mental deterioration.
Throughout history, and sadly even today, women have lacked autonomy- over their lives, bodies, etc. This story is an excellent example of that. I don't see how I could give this any less than a 5.
We continue to see this today with the fight women's healthcare.

This is for the locked room mystery square.

Bingo card additions
The Yellow Wallpaper - Charlotte Perkins Gilman,Dawn Harvey
Cujo - Stephen King,Lorna Raver,Simon & Schuster Audio
The Roll-Away Pumpkin - Junia Wonders,Daniela Volpari

I keep filling that bingo card a bit randomly..

 

The Yellow Wallpaper - Charlotte Perkins Gilman,Dawn Harvey 

I came across a different narration of the yellow wallpaper and I loved it. The narrator's voice nailed the creepy factor and even though I knew the story I loved every minute of it. Here is my original review of the story.

 

Cujo - Stephen King,Lorna Raver,Simon & Schuster Audio 

I first read Cujo when I was 13 or 14 I don't remember very well. What I do remember however was the nightmares that book gave me. I cannot look at a Saint Bernard dog and not get the chills. To this day it's one of the scariest books I have ever read and for the sake of the bingo I re-visited that book and purchased the audiobook. It's still scary but not as scary as I remember it. The narrator was rather good too, I must add.

The Roll-Away Pumpkin - Junia Wonders,Daniela Volpari 

This is a cute little story about a girl that chases her pumpkin with gorgeous illustrations!

Free October 2016 Desktop Wallpaper Download

Hi!

 

So it's almost October, my month... my favourite Month!!
Autumn is getting better, rainier, colder... :)

 

And with it all comes a new Desktop Calendar.
This time I wanted to make a loew key piece, since I really just tried my hand on smaller things, partially using traditionally pieces, which I digitalised.

 

I hand-dyed and aged a new Din A4 size piece of paper then scanned it. I used not just tea, but red cabbage.
I distressed parts of the paper with a tea bag, roughing its texure.
Then I created an aged piece of paper with the same dimensions, but digitally.
Afterwards I did blend both textures together... with old folding marks, scratches and all.
Adding the border and a few extras like the main star sign of the month (according to the Western Astronomy) I tried to give it the last final touches.

 

I wanted it to be a bit more simplistic, really focusing on mixing different mediae.

I hope you like it.

 

I have been a bit absent again this month, RL in general was very favourable but also time consuming.


I hope to remedy this soon, so I have a bit more time for this blogging hobby.

What have you been doing?

 

Yours,
 Nokta

 

P.S.: Feel free to share this Calendar. And don't forget, Constructive criticism and comments in general are always welcome!
