Many authors use the individual traits of people to write attractive phrases. In such a situation, these features encompass what the character or primary person does in his dialogue. It also happens that writers or authors also base majorly on what a person does to write their material. However, some could depend on what is told to them by the omniscient narrators, and also some authors could also write according to what is told about another character. (Gilman, 1990). All those ideas are built up to make stories, humorous, and exciting to the readers. However, it is a question of interest to know how the author develops the character used in the story given in the “Yellow Wallpaper.” Perhaps the character was developed from the behavior or the physical description. It is, of course, confident that the author could have developed the character basing on its notion basing on the dialogue. An example of character development is observed when the author narrates “John laughs at me, but one expects that in marriage.” The simplicity of the phrase gives us an insight into how the character has for long withstood critics from others by laughing at him. It, therefore, gives an author a momentum to use the phrase in character narrations to describe what the character experiences in his marriage. (Gilman, 1990).

The passage that portrays more on the physical deeds or actions without comprising the physical details talks much about John. Think John is developed as an indirect character in the text. It should be in our consideration that authors and writers use indirect and direct characterization in building or developing characters. For instance, direct characterization is explained as a moment in which a narrator conveys information to the book lover about a personality. For example, the author using particular adjectives that best describe the character, and what he does would be termed as direct characterization. It is, therefore, sure that the author developed the characters in the yellow wallpaper from the following. The Narrator is a paradox in the context because it is observed that she loses touch with the external world. The narrator lately comes to an understanding of her inner reality. It is important to understand the inner and outer split of the narrator because it gives us some of the problems she faces. It also happens that she is confronted with different situations, relationships, and objects that make her life seem miserable. In a sense, the conditions seem bizarre and quite repressive. It is sure that “The Yellow paper” is just a narrator’s way to address the extent at which her outer situation smothers her inside inclinations.

John as a character in “The Yellow Wallpaper” is observed to be an enemy. In the story, we cannot see John as totally evil. However, his treatment of the narrator is terribly merciless but in actual insight John was just trying to help. The author uses John’s context to build up a character that could simplify problems by seeing a critique. John was not attempting to make the narrator’s situation better not making it worse, and that is why the author develops a character out of John. However, John’s problem is being self-encompassing in a way that he has to joint role as a narrator’s doctor and husband. John is so confident of the wife’s troubles thus forcing her to hide some opinions that make not to express some feelings.

In conclusion, different authors use different characterizations to develop characters in their texts. In such a situation, Charlotte Perkins Gilman uses the narrator’s position to show a woman stuck in the Wallpaper. He also expounds on that to express how other women are forced to slink and hide in their domestic patterns. However, John is a character developed that to represent a husband that knows her wife partially. John misses the inner reality of her wife, and such ignorance makes John a villain.
