Kate Chopin (1850–1904) was born in St. Louis. She moved to Louisiana where she wrote two novels and numerous stories. Because The Awakening was widely condemned, publication of Chopin’s third story collection was cancelled. The Awakening was rediscovered by scholars in the 1960s and 1970s and is her best-known work.

From Our Editors

The controversial author of The Awakening, Kate Chopin was and is renown for her decadent literary passion for the sensual aspects of life. A Vocation And A Voice presents readers with shocking and erotic tales of discovery. “An Egyptian Cigarette” chronicles a drug trip while “The Story of an Hour” provides an unforgettable interpretation of a life altering childhood event experienced by the author. Editor Emily Toth is Chopin’s biographer and her expert introduction to this classic text is both illuminating and engaging. Don’t miss this brilliant classic of early 20th-century literature.
