"The Yellow Wall-Paper" and Joseph Henry Hatfield's Original Magazine Illustrations
Golden, Catherine, ""The Yellow Wall-Paper" and Joseph Henry Hatfield's Original Magazine Illustrations" (2005). English. 44.
Golden discusses Joseph Henry Hatfield's original magazine illustrations. The January 1892 issue of New England Magazine includes the story of Charlotte Perkins Gilman along with Hatfield's realistic-style illustrations, typical of the late 19th century. More than a century after its publication, Gilman's story has become a classic, but Hatfield remains largely unknown. Despite the volume of criticism since the 1973 Feminist Press republication of "The Yellow Wall-Paper" and its celebrated status as a feminist text, the original illustrations have not yet attracted significant scholarly attention.
