    "Story of an Hour" When I read Kate Chopin's, "Story of an Hour" I am reminded of a Edgar Allan Poe horror poems. The narrator has a "divine transformation" yet it kills her. This puzzles me, so I will search for the true meaning of this strange story (marriage, as I believe). To accomplish this task and to truly understand this short story, I will first learn about Kate Chopin's life and experiences. Later, I will investigate her use of symbolism in "Story of an Hour" and their' dual purposes (...
  • Chopin's Short Story
    1,316 words
    Kate Chopin was a strong, independent woman. Her strength and independence was surely a result of her upbringing, but being born in the mid-eighteen hundreds, this was not a popular way for a woman to be. As she became a writer, her experiences throughout her childhood and her early adulthood made for some very controversial themes and ideas in her writings. As evidenced by her short story "The Story of An Hour", Kate Chopin was obviously ahead of her time in that she often wrote of such controv...
  • Mrs Mallard And Desiree
    1,247 words

Two prime examples of this writing style are her short stories "The Story of an Hour" and "Desiree's Baby". While these two works do share some similarities there are also vast differences and a few parallels from Chopin's own life. A brief look into the settings and themes of ...
  • Character Of Mrs Baroda
    552 words
    In reading "A Respectable Woman" by Kate Chopin it is apparent that she is very much a realist. Her works are all fictional stories but they represent the stark realities of life. She does not dramatize or make her characters appear heroic, but simply portrays them as everyday people trying to overcome everyday conflicts. Chopin's writing is very unconventional for her time. The female characters in her stories defy the conventional role of women in her time. In writing her stories through her p...
  • Desiree's Baby By Kate Chopin
    2,025 words
    The short story "Desiree's Baby", by Kate Chopin, incorporates very interesting twists and turns capturing the reader's attention, while provoking thoughts on issues deeper than the text itself. Kate Chopin depicts the ignorance and the stupidity of racism and chauvinism in a realistic way. These schools of thought openly blanketed past societies, and still live on in the present one. Chopin uses the husband's racist sentiments towards African Americans against him by making him of that very rac...
  • News Of Louise's Husband's Death
    985 words
    The struggle between love and war is never ending. While one may have love, however war within that love can still exist, and vice versa. Women, being more emotional than men (usually), tend to put their emotions out there for the public either to accept or reject; not until recently have women's emotions been more welcomed. Kate Chopin wrote a very intense piece which dealt with a woman's pure, raw emotion, and she received much criticism for it. Taking a look at her piece, "The Story of an Hou...
