about


The Awakening, first titled A Solitary Soul, is a novel by Kate Chopin. Set in New Orleans and the Southern Louisiana coast at the end of the nineteenth century, the plot centers on Edna Pontellier and her struggle to reconcile her increasingly unorthodox views on femininity and motherhood with the prevailing social attitudes of the turn-of-the-century American South. It is one of the earliest American novels that focuses on women's issues without condescension. It is also widely seen as a landmark work of early feminism, generating mixed reaction from contemporary readers and criticism.  This edition also contains selected short stories of Kate Chopin, including Beyond the Bayou, Ma'ame Pelagie, Desiree's Baby, A Respectable Woman, The Kiss, A Pair of Silk Stockings, The Locket, and A Reflection.
This book has been formatted for your reader, with an active table of contents.  It has also been annotated, with additional information about The Awakening and its author, including an overview, synopsis, style information, themes, and legacy.
