About the Author

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.

This was a book club selection at our office and it really caused a stir in the participants -- such a wide variety of thoughts about the book. I really enjoyed it.

Acquired via BookCrossing 16 Jul 2010 - donation to OBCZ from ex-library stockA classic of feminist writing which was decried in its late 19th-century day and only rediscovered in the 1960s, this is the story of a woman who finds family life too constricting; she engages in a series of flirtations and gradually prises herself out of the claustrophobic mould in which she has found herself, to seek emotional, financial and sexual freedom. But will she have to pay too high a price...? This is a very atmospheric book; the sea plays a huge role and life on the summer resort is evoked beautifully. The language is a little indirect but never confusing, and it's an interesting and though-provoking read.

The person who recommended this book to me is a bit of literature snob; only reading classics and looking down her nose at anything written after the early 1900's. To be honest, I wasn't expecting to enjoy the book as much as I did. It had a light, lyrical prose; fantastic descriptions of Victorian Creole life; as well as a quick and easy pace. I found myself caught up in the story of Mrs. Edna Pontellier, and relating to her, even if her actions were less than noble. I enjoyed reading the Norton Critical Edition for a few reasons; the historical footnotes were fascinating and helped give context to the content, and reading criticisms from when the book first came out vs. later criticism was also interesting. I'm not sure I would have gotten as much out of the book if I had read a version without these things.

i've always thought this book lets a girl down in the end a little bit.

Everyone told me to read this because of my interest in feminism. But when I did I was disappointed. Maybe the hype was better than the content.
