This is a nicely produced book and gives helpful insights particularly to Gilman scholars. Perhaps those interested simply in reading the story might find it unnecessary to have both versions. However the story itself is essentially an insight into how women were treated and viewed before ever there was a feminist movement. I see a strong parallel in this story to the actual plight of Virginia Woolf who in reality was confined away from life in just such a similar way to protect her from the effects of 'her nerves'.
The Yellow Wall-paper is a story which is quite simply shocking.
