  1. HI ALL I tried to find a Kate Chopin thread and was disappointed not to find one since she is such an important American female writer. She wrote THE AWAKENING, novel about Edna Pontellier a widow who lives in New Orleans and is heartbreakingly miserable. She takes the chance of breaking with the conventional mores of Victorian life and when she gets into trouble she does not take the sage advice of two of her sage supporters. Not like other Victorian novels, some discussed here, we have a very brave woman, but not a very smart one. But her creater is a genius. The building of Edna's character and the definition of her pain is stunning. Chopin manages to weave so much into this very short novel: imagery, allusion, symbols, sex, money, love, morality, personal values and friendship. Not unlike Virginia Woolf Kate Chopin captures the life of a woman on the edge who refuses to be helped back into the world. Has anyone read this masterpiece of 19C American Belle Lettres? Lets talk!
