Maria has a job to do in the laundry, a responsibility which she performs daily. In essence nothing changes at least in her daily tasks for Maria.

Further ambitions are to analyze how Gilman uses autobiographical elements for an implied authorship'1 and to discuss the problem of interpretation. This question arises automatically, when dealing only with extracts from, therefore not complete, texts, and will be deepened in the concluding chapter: Gilman, the great-niece of Harriet Beecher Stowe, had a complex relationship to men, for her father abandoned the family after her mother had a miscarriage.
When she learned that she had incurable breast cancer, Gilman committed suicide on August 17, Analysis The analysis is based upon the theories presented by Mick Short in Exploring the language of poems, plays and prose: The concepts and linguistic terms, used in the following discussion, will be explained during the analysis on examples from the extract itself.
On the one hand this helps the reader to get to know about feelings and ideas of the narrator, but on the other hand he only has little insight in the position of other characters. By the way of example there are over 40 adjectives and adverbs referring to the fictional world and describing the house and surroundings, to give the reader a picture of it.
Here we have to take into account that especially the word class of adjectives cannot be a definite entity for us when reading a text, for they are strongly subjective.
Therefore the narrator uses as much descriptive elements as possible to create a coherent picture of the fictional world, which addresses the readers imagination and gives him a realistic picture.
Gilman manages that one very well, for her depiction is not only reasonable but also very detailed. Another question is the reliability of the narrator, for his point of view implies an increased limitation compared with other styles of writing.
In other words the narrator himself is limited to his perception and the reader following the remarks in the story is also limited in second instance.
Here the reader has to decide whether he believes the narrators accomplishments or not. Both cases lead to a different understanding of the story and are crucial for its interpretation.
Short refers to this term only when talking about third-person narrators, but I think this could also occur in a first-person viewpoint, for there are several elements in the text proving this theory.
There are still a lot of disagreements concerning biographical elements in texts and about the question if an interpretation should consider them. Gilman uses elements in her story, which connect the fiction to reality, and therefore are essential for its understanding. Exploring the Language of Poems, Plays and Prose p.
