These should be your ideas, only. 
Plagiarizing content or structure, or "borrowing" ideas will result in a zero and a discipline referral.

OR
2. How is the wallpaper used to symbolize the narrator's situation?
OR
3. How does the ending of "The Yellow Wallpaper" represent both a triumph and a defeat for the narrator? Which is it, really, and why?
OR
4. How is "The Yellow Wallpaper" a critique of Victorian gender roles for women?
