Edna Pontellier, a young wife and mother in a comfortable New Orleans family, has come to feel caged by the traditional expectations of her domestic life. When it was published in 1899, the frank treatment of her awakening desire and search for self-discovery caused this story to be labeled sordid and immoral. Chopin's collected stories, although written almost 90 years ago, remain remarkably fresh and immediate today.Reseña del editor:
This collection of stories begins with The Awakening, the tale of a young wife and mother who refuses to be caged by the props of domesticity. Defying the conventions of marriage, she claims for herself moral and erotic freedom.
