About the Book

This short book was released in 1899. Because of the scandal it created, it was outlawed for many years. Kate Chopin was so outraged by the backlash to this work that she decided to stop writing entirely. The protagonist of the tale is Mrs. Edna Pontellier, a Kentucky native wed to Leonce, a Creole from New Orleans. When she reaches twenty-eight, she has a change internally one summer. Although she is not entirely conscious of what is occurring, she is aware that she feels different. She gradually stops adhering to societal norms and starts acting and saying whatever she wants. Everyone brushes it off since she's a woman and says, "Leave her alone; she'll get over it." She does not, though. She gradually gets more independent and obstinate, refusing to continue playing the game. Although this narrative was published in the Victorian era, it's difficult to imagine what may be controversial about it from a contemporary perspective. At the end of the book, there is a modest selection of top-notch short stories.

About Author

Kate Chopin

An American writer of short stories and novels, Kate Chopin was born in Louisiana on February 8, 1850, and she passed away on August 22, 1904. She is one of the more popular and well-known writers of Louisiana Creole descent and is thought by researchers to have been a precursor of American 20th-century female novelists of Southern or Catholic background, such as Zelda Fitzgerald. She is best known for the novel The Awakening, published in 1899. Chopin was born in St. Louis, Missouri, and had Irish and French ancestry. She got married and went to New Orleans with her spouse. Later, they settled in a rural area near Cloutierville, Louisiana. Chopin published both kid-friendly and adult-friendly short stories between 1892 and 1895 in a number of major publications, including Atlantic Monthly, Vogue, The Century Magazine, and The Youth's Companion. Because of her subjects and method, her stories sparked debate; some critics deemed them immoral. Her two short story collections and two novels are considered her key works. Bayou Folk (1894) and A Night in Acadie are the compilations (1897). Her notable short stories include "The Story of an Hour" (1894), "The Storm," and "Désirée's Baby," which is a story about miscegenation in pre-Civil War Louisiana (1898).
