What part can loneliness play in mental illness? For two women, it was the biggest blow that sent
them spiraling down into that dark, deep hole of depression. Miss Emily, in “A Rose for Emily”, stayed
shut up in her home for ten years. Outsiders only seeing her maid go in and out from the market. Emily’s
father had died, and her soon-to-be husband had left her. Later in the story, we find that her lover had
actually died in the house, and not really left.
“After her father’s death, she went out very little; after her sweetheart went away, people hardly saw
her at all. A few of the ladies had the temerity to call, but were not received, and the only sign of life
about the place was the negro man – a young man then – going in and out with a market basket.”
Emily had no friends. She had no family. A few women came to see her, but she shut them out.
They left, and they never came back. She was depressed and lonely. I’m assuming that she was so low,
that she didn’t want to have any company. What she really needed was a friend. She had lost her daddy
and then the only other man she loved. And without the knowledge of her man passing away, the town
took it as an act of meanness. Without anyone to talk to, she felt as though she were in a prison. But this
is where she and the other woman differ. Emily liked to stay shut inside her home. She didn’t want to go
out and socialize. Years later, after she had died, the townspeople found her deceased fiancé in a bed in
an upstairs room.
The unnamed woman in “The Yellow Wallpaper” was very similar and somehow opposite of Emily.
She, like Emily, was also alone. Shut in a room with no one to talk to other than the wall. The woman
spoke of escaping her room; leaving and seeing the earth around her. This is how they differ. She never
wanted to be alone. She wanted nothing more than to get away. She wanted to die being stuck inside
“I thought it was a good time to talk, so I told him that I really was not gaining here, and that I wished
he would take me away.” (pg 222)
The woman was kept there by her husband. She was taken there against her will. Despite many
efforts and her begging to leave, he just wouldn’t take her home. Her husband was the cause of her
loneliness and depression.
