by Mlanie Thberge Although it may not seem obvious to all readers the stories of Robert Frosts Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening and Charlotte Perkins Gilmans The Wallpaper share the same storyline During certain literary periods authors often treat similar topics First both stories share the same era the beginning of the twentieth century Gilman published in 1892 while Frost published in 1923 Moreover both stories begin with the narrator describing the house its location and the nature around it Jane in Gilmans story spends three quiet months locked up in a yellow room Similarly Frosts narrator spends a quiet night in dark woods with white snow Both characters also feel isolated from the outside world impressed by their surroundings and bothered by someone close to them Furthermore womens condition seems like an important subject for both authors raised by single mothers In Gilmans story for example John controls Jane he tells her what to do where to be and what to think Frosts opinion seems less obvious but he gives his harness bells a shake 850 resembles Johns actions when Jane locks herself in her room The harness also represents the mans control over the woman Finally both stories end with the authors admission of the characters problems they cannot sleep need to keep a promise and go crazy In conclusion Frosts poem could be considered as being a summary of Gilmans story because they resemble each other in so many ways With this notion in mind students might now be able to read stories and poems link them together and impress their teachers
