One of the first books to truthfully write about women’s lives, Kate Chopin’s The Awakening is considered a quintessential work of Southern literature and a bold foray into early feminism. Aside from The Awakening, Chopin has written numerous short stories, many exploring Cajun, Creole, and Southern identities.

The flowery language was a little hard for me to follow. It was hard to feel for the main character, as she was so self-absorbed and didn't react to her situation in any way you would expect. If this wasn't required reading, I wouldn't have finished it.
