What does this quote symbolize in the story "The Yellow Wallpaper"?" I’ve got out at last," said I, "in spite of you and Jane. And I’ve pulled off most of the paper, so you can’t put me back."

This quote symbolizes the narrator's confinement and subsequent ability to free herself. She identifies with the woman she believes is trapped in the wallpaper, and in her own mind she believes that in freeing the woman (scratching away the paper), she has freed herself.
