The Yellow Wallpaper Part 3 Summary

  • The Fourth of July has passed. The narrator has had some company, but now she is tired.
  • John threatens to send her to Weir Mitchell if she doesn’t get better, but she doesn’t want that—she’s had friends treated by the man and apparently he’s just like John.
  • Her mind grows more chaotic as she begins randomly crying.
  • She stays alone in her room or walks in the garden.
  • She grows more obsessed with the wallpaper and is determined to find a purpose to the pattern.
  • It tires her out and she decides to take a nap.
