Kate Chopin (1850-1904) is one of the great writers of the 19th century. Along
with women like Charlotte Perkins Gilman, George Eliot, and others, she is a
precursor to the feminist writers of the 20th century. Chopin’s writing was
published in Vogue, including almost 20 stories, The Atlantic, and other publications.
Her writing primarily takes place in her home state of Louisiana including this story
and others like The Storm, plus her novel The Awakening. Chopin did not write until
later in life and is best known for that novel, which was published in 1899. The
Awakening tells the story of a woman trapped in the confines of an oppressive
society. It was deeply criticized on moral and literary grounds.
Chopin herself was a fairly seclusive person and did not consider herself a feminist
or suffragist. According to Seyersted, Chopin was “never a feminist in the dictionary
sense of the term,” she never joined any organizations or clubs and was reportedly
dismissive of the importance of suffrage, but did introduce a “discreet feminist
touch” to her writing.
Her writing often involved, besides the above mentioned feminist “touch,” a lot of
local elements including creole and black characters.
There is a chance this story could be based on something in Chopin’s past,
according to biographers.
The first time I read Kate Chopin’s writing was in high
school. A teacher saw that I had read a few novels by
Canadian writer Margaret Atwood and suggested I would
like Chopin, so I went to the town library and got her novel
The Awakening and a collection of her short stories. I really
liked both a lot.
I have taught The Awakening in a few courses including
LIT206 and LIT210. I have taught three of her short stories
