The narrator's development

Stage of Deterioration Symptoms and Behaviors Quotes from the Story
Stage 1 Mild Anxiety and Depression "I wish John would take me away from here."
Stage 2 Obsessive Fixation on the Wallpaper "The color is repellent, almost revolting; a smouldering unclean yellow, strangely faded by the slow-turning sunlight."
Stage 3 Hallucinations and Paranoia "I see things in the paper that nobody but me can see."
Stage 4 Manic Behavior and Self-Destruction "I pulled and she shook, I shook and she pulled, and before morning we had peeled off yards of that paper."
Stage 5 Complete Breakdown and Psychosis "I've got out at spite of you and Jane. And I've pulled off most of the paper, so you can't put me back!"

This table outlines the stages of the narrator's mental deterioration, the symptoms and behaviors associated with each stage, and quotes from the story that illustrate those symptoms and behaviors. An infographic could then use visual elements to depict the progression of the narrator's mental state, such as a bar graph showing the increase in anxiety over time, or an illustration of the wallpaper changing in appearance to reflect the narrator's perception of it.
