"Perhaps it is better to wake up after all, even to suffer, rather than to remain a dupe to illusions all one's life."   Kate Chopin was enjoying wide popularity as a writer, mainly of short stories, when her second novel, The Awakening, was published to widespread criticism of its immorality. A wake-up call to women all over the country, this landmark novel of early American feminism tells of a Louisiana wife who discovers the strength of her own sexuality and tries to wrench it from the hands of a patriarchal society. And just as Edna Pontellier is ostracized for trying to master her own sexual fate, so did Chopin's reputation suffer after she wrote this book. Today The Awakening is considered a masterpiece and, along with Chopin's short stories, has set a standard for younger generations of women who have learned to value their independence and authenticity. Edited and with an Introduction by Barbara H. Solomon and with a New Afterword by Roxane Gay.… (més)

Unforgettable Classic.................
The Awakening and Other selected stories is a wonderful classic which splendidly focuses on lives of women in the society. In fact, the stories display the ugly face of our society, where people are judged based on their color. Furthermore, People have faced these issues for a long time now and are still prevalent in the society. My favorite story in the book is Desiree's Baby, where the story compels to think about the ubiquitous practices in our society. Above all, I would definitely recommend the book. And, also give it 5 stars.

On the plus side, Chopin's work is feminist. While some of her stories may seem mild and unworthy of controversy in our time, they were utterly shocking in hers. Some, like "The Story of an Hour" and "The Storm", present ideas that are still considered deviant today. I believe these stories are still relevant.

However, her work is also exemplary of white feminism. Repeatedly, the black characters are referred to not by name but by position and even more frequently by percent of blackness - the mulatto, the quadroon, etc. In "Désirée’s Baby", she raises the issue of the one-drop rule. Whereas some read the story as a statement on the ambiguity of race, I see no condemnation of racism but rather a statement on women paying the price for things more rightfully laid at the doorstep of men. While I would certainly not discourage anyone from reading her work, I think they should read it with eyes wide open to this aspect. ( )

Disappointing. I have no sympathy for Edna, mostly because I don't like her or the way she reacts to her "awakening." I suppose an argument could be made for the oppressiveness of Edna's time not allowing her space to become the woman she is trying to become, but I can't help but think that she didn't try very hard to carve out that space. I feel the injustice of making such a proclamation from 2008 and I suspect that I may be missing the point, but I can't help but think of books like Pride and Prejudice and Jane Eyre where women living in societies not disposed toward women's liberation or independence in any way manage to discover who they are; maintain their own, individual senses of self; and find happiness in the time they were born into. Ultimately, The Awakening seems to be about how oppressive times destroy a woman--which does not make for a particularly affirming or enjoyable read. ( )

One of my favorite books of all time. The main character's search for identity and independence is wonderfully constructed. You yearn for her freedom and want her to be happy while also begging her to do the right thing for her family. Heavy symbolism runs throughout, but a very moving depiction of the stifling life of women. ( )

I love, love, love Kate Chopin! I'm not overly fond of the character-driven plot, but I've always found her characters engaging. It helps that she writes in a time period that I'm interested in as well. ( )
