When The Awakening
was first published in 1899, critical outcry proved so vociferous that the novel was banished for decades. Now praised as a classic of early feminist literature, Kate Chopin's last work rejects conventional female roles and celebrates a woman's journey toward self-awareness. As Chopin's heroine, Edna Pontellier, awakens to her own desires she begins to question her ideas about marriage, motherhood, society, art, and the nature of love itself. A milestone in American fiction, The Awakening
is an unforgettably poignant novel of self-discovery that has inspired generations of readers.
