AUTHOR

Chopin, Kate, Gilbert, Sandra M., Gilbert, Sandra M.

SUMMARY

A daring novel of a woman's sexual and spiritual rebirth When The Awakening was first published in 1899, charges of sordidness and immorality seemed to consign it into obscurity and irreparably damage its author's literary and social reputation. But a century after her death, it is widely regarded as Kate Chopin's great achievement. Through careful, subtle changes of style, Chopin shows the transformation of Edna Pontellier, a young wife and mother who-with tragic consequences-refuses to be caged by married and domestic life and claims for herself moral and erotic freedom. In her introduction, Sandra M. Gilbert considers the issues explored in the novel and the stories collected here (including "Emancipation," "At the 'Cadian Ball," and "Desiree's Baby") from their growth out of the feminist literary tradition of the nineteenth century, to their place among other concerns of fin de siecle writers in America and Europe, to their impact on contemporary feminist writing.Chopin, Kate is the author of 'Awakening and Selected Stories', published 2003 under ISBN 9780142437322 and ISBN 0142437328.
