  • Kate Chopin - 1,164 words
    ... aced with another death. In June 1885, her mother had died. Chopin was literally prostrate with grief (Unger 207). In later years, Chopin's daughter would sum up the effect upon her mothers character: When I speak of my mothers keen sense of humor and of her habit of looking on the amusing side of everything. I dont want to give the impression of her being joyous, for she was on the contrary rather a sad nature I think the tragic death of her father early in her life, of her much beloved brothers, the loss of her young husband and her mother, left a stamp of sadness on her which was never lost(Unger 207). Chopin began writing fiction very seriously in 1889. No one knows exactly why she t ...

  • Kate Chopin - 491 words
    Kate Chopin was an incredibly talented writer of the late 1800's. Kate wrote about real feelings and real issues. Few of the topics thatshe wrote about were spoken of. Kate Chopin became one of the best known and most controversial writers of the 19th century. She stood up for women, their rights and other real issues, no matter what the cost was to her reputation. Kate Chopin was born, Katherine O'Flaherty, on February 8,1851, in St. Louis Missouri. She was raised by women for most of her childhood. Kate grew up, married, had kids and was widowed by her husband who died of malaria. It wasn't until the death of her husband that she moved back to her birth place (St. Louis), and began to writ ...

  • Kate Chopin The Stor - 1,156 words
    In Kate Chopin's short story "The Storm", the narrative surrounds the brief extramarital affair of two individuals, Calixta and Alce. Many critics do not see the story as a condemnation of infidelity, but rather as an affirmation of human sexuality. This essay argues that "The Storm" may be interpreted as a specific affirmation of feminine sexuality and passion conjoined with a condemnation of its repression by the constraints of society. If one is to attempt to interpret "The Storm", it becomes necessary to examine the conditions surrounding the story's genesis. The story was written in 1898, very shortly after Chopin had completed "The Awakening", "the boldest treatment so far in American ...

    ... ng her inner emotions. Calixta and Alce move to a window to watch the storm, and when lightning strikes nearby, Calixta staggers backward into Alce's arms, and for a moment he draws her "close and spasmodically to him" (p210). Alce has apparently not, until this point, sensed the passion that Calixta feels: "The contact of her warm, palpitating body when he had unthinkingly drawn her into his arms had aroused all the old-time infatuation and desire for her flesh" (p210). Chopin presents both Alce and Calixta as sexual beings, but she is clearly focusing on the sexuality of her feminine protagonist: Her lips were as red and moist as pomegranate seed. Her white neck and a glimpse of her fu ...

  • Criticism Of The Storm By Kate Chopin - 643 words
    While it has traditionally been men who have attached the "ball and chain" philosophy to marriage, Kate Chopin gave readers a womans view of how repressive and confining marriage can be for a woman, both spiritually and sexually. While many of her works incorporated the notion of women as repressed beings ready to erupt into a sexual a hurricane, none were as tempestuous as The Storm. Kate Chopin was a woman whose feminist viewpoints were far ahead of her time, which of course garnered her more than her share of criticism. In a time when women were expected to behave "properly" and sexual desire was considered to be something only experienced by men, Chopin spoke with exceptional openness ab ...

  • Kate Chopin's Controversial Views - 1,773 words
    Too strong a drink for moral babies, and should be labeled 'poison'." was the how the Republic described Kate Chopin's most famous novel The Awakening (Seyersted 174). This was the not only the view of one magazine, but it summarized the feelings of society as a whole. Chopin woke up people to the feelings and minds of women. Even though her ideas were controversial at first, slowly over the decades people began to accept them. Kate O'Flaherty Chopin was raised in St. Louis in the 1850's and 1860's. Chopin had a close relationship with her French grandmother which lead to her appreciation of French writers. When she was only five Chopin's father, Thomas O'Flaherty died leaving her without a ...

  • The Story Of An Hour By Kate Chopin - 470 words
    In Kate Chopin's short story "The Story of an Hour," there is much irony. The first irony detected is in the way that Louise reacts to the news of the death of her husband, Brently Mallard. Before Louise's reaction is revealed, Chopin alludes to how the widow feels by describing the world according to her perception of it after the "horrible" news. Louise is said to "not hear the story as many women have heard the same." Rather, she accepts it and goes to her room to be alone. Now the reader starts to see the world through Louise's eyes, a world full of new and pure life. In her room, Louise sinks into a comfortable chair and looks out her window. Immediately the image of comfort seems to st ...

  • Analysis Of "the Story Of An Hour" By Kate Chopin - 1,156 words
    I wrote my paper on The Story of an Hour by Kate Chopin. On the following pages, you will read about a character by the name of Louise. She was married at a time when marriage was not about mutual love. When she hears of her husbands death, she feels sorrow but is overcome with feelings of joy. Louise has found a freedom that she had forgotten she had. Louise is so excited to live her new life until tragedy happens again. I believe that Louise is a likeable character because she brings so much depth into the story. She takes us on a roller coaster of emotions. At first, you cannot help but pity her and then all of a sudden you wish you could feel like she does. I found Louise to be an exampl ...

  • The Awakening - 803 words
    When faced with the question of "which novel did I have the greatest reaction to this semester?", the first story that came to mind was The Awakening. Although written from the perspective of a woman, I found that this story rendered my greatest emotional appeal. It is a story of a woman, Edna Pontellier, who transforms herself from an obedient housewife to a person who is alive with strength of character and emotions that she no longer has to suppress. The metamorphosis is shaped by her surroundings. It is the narrow minded view of society in Victorian times that makes this story possible. Just as her behavior is more shocking and horrifying because of her position in society, it is that ve ...

  • The Storm - 932 words
    i titled mine "Nature's Passion" but you do what you will with it...it hasn't been graded or i'd give you the grade. good luck..............:) Kate Chopin wrote her fictional short story "The Storm" in the late nineteenth century. During this time, women were looked down upon as being merely housewives; their needs and desires weren't considered in every day living. This story refutes that idea by showing how the necessities of nature coincide with the needs of personal satisfaction. Chopin's use of symbolism models how the requirements of nature and the needs of people must and will be satisfied in order to sustain life. The title of this story suggests a metaphorical connection between the ...

  • Eveline - 527 words
    Setting is one of the most significant elements in a story. The setting goes far beyond the simple physical attributes and external face value. It seems "Eveline" solely takes place in Dublin in an old room, but the setting actually plays a key role in the story. The setting in "Eveline" helps the reader to better understand the behavior of the main character. The setting in "Eveline" is paralyzing, and this helps the reader to understand why Eveline does not go with Frank to Buenos Aires. In the majority of the story Eveline "sat at the window," (512) which parallels with her paralysis because she does not move. Eveline "was going to go away like the others" (512) because she was one of the ...

  • The Awakening - 813 words
    Kate Chopins novel The Awakening is full of symbolism. In each chapter there is a central symbol that adds to the meaning of the story. Small symbols throughout the novel such as sunshades, children playing and pianos represent properties of domesticity and society rules which Edna tries to separate herself from. Chopin does however, give larger representative symbols to add meaning to the novel. The first line of the novel is perhaps the most obvious example of symbolism. A parrot screeches Allez vous-en! Allez vous-en! Saprtisti! Thats all right! which translates to Go Away! Go Away! For Heavens sake! This crazy bird in a cage represents Ednas longing to go away and escape from the pressur ...

  • A Womans Aspiration For Freedom - 744 words
    In The Story Of An Hour, a short story written by Kate Chopin, the desire for independence from male domination was illustrated. This theme represents a common sentiment from oppressed women in the nineteenth century. Louise Mallard, the protagonist, reveals her true feelings about her marriage to Brently Mallard. After hearing the news of her husbands death, Louise weeps not for her loss, but for her freedom. Through the context of the story and the use of symbolism, Chopin helps us understand why the feelings of bitterness and longing for freedom are present. Louise Mallard symbolizes the mind frame of females during the time of liberation. Louise and Brently Mallard had a very traditional ...

  • Kake Chopin - 1,250 words
    Kate Chopin is an American writer, best known for her description of culture in New Orleans, Louisiana, and of women's struggles for freedom. Many of her works including The Awakening, were examples of local-color and helped establish Chopin as a contributor to Southern regional literature. The Awakening attracted a lot of negative criticism for its description of a woman's developing independence and sensuality. This novel portrayed the progress of a wife, mother, and a lady addicted to finding love under her own control, and throughout the novel she undergoes awakenings that will eventually lead to her suicide. One of the first awakenings that Edna has is a marital awakening. For Edna, the ...

  • The Storm - 679 words
    Kate Chopin writings are known for its realism and for its focus on the controversial issues of women. The Storm focuses on the issue of infidelity. I thought it interesting to break down the two male characters of The Storm, Bobinot and Alcee and the controversy that surrounds them. The story takes place during a tremendous storm, where when father (Bobinot) and child are away, the mother (Calixta) is left at home. An old lover of Calixta, Alcee, appears and in the heat of a passionate storm makes love to Calixta. The description of the two men in this story, one boring one exciting, gives some insight on why the cheating occurred. They are two completely different men that share one common ...

    "Every step which she took toward relieving herself from obligations added to her strength and expansion as an The Awakening by Kate Chopin introduces the reader to the life of Edna Pontellier, a woman with an independent nature, searching for her true identity in a patriarchal society that expects women to be nothing more than devoted wives and nurturing mothers. In this paper I will describe Edna's journey of self-discovery and explain why her struggle for independence is no easy task. I will also discuss the relationship Edna has with two other main women characters and describe how these women conform or rebel against a society with many social constraints. Finally I will discuss how the ...
