The Yellow Wallpaper

Could the story have been taken in a different place (or at a different time)?

Why does the narrator live in a "colonial mansion"? What does the setting mean? Is it important?

This story could take place today. The "colonial" mansion is a style of home built prior to the 19th Century, but many of these homes still exist today. Thus, the peaceful, isolated setting can still be attained.
