The Awakening and Other Stories
Barnes Noble

In 1899 Kate Chopin stunned the literary world with the
publication of The Awakening,
her tale of a woman who seeks personal fulfillment in a relationship outside of
her tradition-bound marriage and household. Controversial in its day, Chopin's
pioneering novel served as a touchstone for many modernist works published in
its wake and is regarded a landmark work of feminist literature. This
collection of Chopin's fiction features the full novel and a selection of her
short stories steeped in the local colour of her native Louisiana.
