The Yellow Wallpaper is well constructed in that the tone of the main character Jane regresses into insanity as the story progresses. The sentences become shorter and quite choppy, and reflect the general progression from a merely depressed state to a paranoid and ultimately insane frame of mind.

Yes, the tone is suggestive of one who is insane.
