The Awakening: And Selected Stories of Kate Chopin (Signet Classics) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Published in 1899, the short novel of feminist fiction is a sympathetic portrayal of a woman's discovery of the stifling bonds of her marriage and the strength of her own sexuality. Revised reissue.

About the Author

Kate Chopin (1850-1904) was born in St. Louis. She moved to Louisiana where she wrote two novels and numerous stories. Because The Awakening was widely condemned, publication of Chopins third story collection was cancelled. The Awakening was rediscovered by scholars in the 1960s and 1970s and is her best-known work.
