Joanna Eberhart is a mother, just like the women of “The Yellow Wallpaper,” “Seventeen Syllables,” and “I Stand Here Ironing.” Joanna loves her two daughters very much, seeing how she checks up on them at night, sits with one of them when her teddy bear is scared, and sees them off to school. Joanna is a good mother and cares for her children dearly; they are not a problem for her. The narrator of “The Yellow Wallpaper” just gave birth and fell into depression.

She lived her life caring and loving her every desire. A life lived by her heart. Her passing has left this void in my life. I still sit and think about this day when I received this call, thought it was the usual greeting call from my sister and mother, not knowing it was the sad news of granny’s passing. The tears came down in puddles, as I tried to comprehend the loss of an angel on earth, who instilled in me the facts of life.

Her startling honesty is seen when she says “I am terrified by this dark thing”. Plath is afraid, she is desperate and she is reaching out to her readers, begging for help. Her use of words in ‘Elm’ is also interesting.
