Among those critics – whether or not they learn the fast story’s formal and stylistic gains, desire a reader-oriented technique or concentrate on the old context - the most controversially mentioned points of the fast tale is its finishing : the scene, the place Jane, the protagonist , has stripped off the wallpaper to free up the girl trapped at the back of it and crawls during the room over her subconscious husband.
Some critics, like Quawas, Gilbert and Gunbar declare that the narrator isn't really insane, yet as a substitute achieves a distinct, increased kingdom of sanity and fact and consequently think of the finishing as whatever optimistic, as a victory Jane profits over her husband and the patriarchal society.
Others even if construe the ultimate scene as a defeat and examine Jane to lose contact with fact and descend into madness. Hedges, for example, argues, that the protagonist “is on the finish defeated, absolutely mad” and Suess constitutes that she is not able to differentiate fable from fact and asks how “living in a kingdom of psychosis [could] be thought of successful whatsoever” . Johnson back doubts even if Gilman herself truly absolutely comprehended the scale of her protagonist’s insanity .
So what has relatively occurred to the protagonist? How is the quick story’s ultimate scene to be understood? Is Jane defeated or does she adventure a triumph? Does she lose her brain or unlock her actual self?
