Inspired by Charlotte Perkins Gilman’s “The Yellow Wallpaper,” the poetic prose sets a tone that hides something darker about the narrator.
In A Devil’s Love, an angry lover compares the one who abandoned her to an evil creature. At least, on the surface. She’s conflicted, a mood that still longs for the one she once had. It’s this conflict that sometimes plays out like a musical rhythm, hinting at a creeping madness and a long time obsession.
