About this product
- DescriptionCondemned as sordid and immoral on its first publication in 1899, this story of a woman trapped in her marriage effectively ended Chopin's career but was revived as a proto-feminist classic in the 1970s. It is one of the earliest American vels to focus on women's issues without condescension, blending a realistic narrative, incisive social commentary and psychological complexity and is arguably a precursor to Hemingway and Faulkner, whilst echoing the works of Edith Wharton and Henry James.
- Author BiographyKate Chopin lived in Louisiana during her marriage and began to write after her husband's death. In addition to The Awakening, she wrote a novel, At Fault, and more than 100 short stories.
