Story of a Crying Woman
November 9, 2016 5:38 PM   Subscribe

Hi there, there's this story I'm looking for the source of. It describes a woman who when her husband leaves in the morning cries all day until he comes back home. The analysis of the story is that she is afraid of the freedom of being alone all day and being able to do what she wants. The story's a device for psychology I think possibly Freud. Cheers!

This isn't quite what you describe, but I'm reminded of Chopin's The Story of an Hour.

The Yellow Wallpaper?

Is it possibly this is philosophy and not psychology? It sounds like something Sartre (or maybe even de Beauvoir, depending on how you spin it) would use as an example of how people (don't) deal with free will.
