BOOK EXCERPT:

(Just Click on the "Classics Factory" Above for More Books for Your Collection) ------ The Awakening by Kate Chopin Edna Pontellier is an obedient wife and mother vacationing at Grand Isle with her family. Edna becomes close to a young man named Robert Lebrun, a charming, earnest young man who actively seeks Edna's attention and affections. and one of the two sons of an elderly French woman who run the resort where Edna and her family vacationing at. Robert senses the doomed nature of such a relationship and flees to Mexico under the guise of pursuing a nameless business venture. Edna is lonely without his companionship, but shortly after her return to New Orleans (where she usually lives with her family), she picks up the male equivalent of a mistress. Although she does not love Alcee Arobin, he awakens various sexual passions within her. The narrative focus moves to Edna's shifting emotions as she reconciles her maternal duties with her desire for social freedom and to be with Robert. When Kate Chopin's 1899 novel The Awakening, originally titled A Solitary Soul, was first released, it evoked a storm of controversy. Though it was not actually banned, it received public censure across the United States. It was considered immoral and subversive, dangerous to the moral well-being of "innocent" women and too frank in its depiction of female desires and physical needs. It challenged the existing gender roles and created a hitherto unrecognized space for a woman's requirement for self-fulfillment, something which was seen as inflammatory and ruinous to society in general. Main characters Edna Pontellier - a respectable Presbyterian from Kentucky, living in Creole society in Louisiana. She rebels against conventional expectations and discovers an identity independent from her role as a wife and mother. L�once Pontellier - Edna's husband, a successful businessman who is unaware of his wife's unhappiness. Mademoiselle Reisz - Her character symbolizes what Edna could have been if she had grown old and had been independent from her family. Despite viewing Reisz as disagreeable, Edna sees her as an inspiration to her own "awakening." Madame Ad�le Ratignolle - Edna's friend, who represents the perfect 19th-century woman, as she is totally devoted to her husband and children. Alc�e Arobin - known for seducing married women and pursues a short-lived affair with Edna, satisfying her while her husband is away. Robert Lebrun - has a history of charming women he cannot have but finds something different with Edna and falls in love. Robert's flirting with Edna catalyzes her "awakening," and she sees in him what has been missing in her marriage. Today The Awakening is hailed as an early and a vivid portrayal of female independence, besides being itself a fascinating read. Facts and Trivia: 1. In the penultimate episode of the first season of HBO's Treme, Creighton (played by John Goodman) assigns Kate Chopin's The Awakening to his freshmen and warns them: "I want you to take your time with it," he cautions. "Pay attention to the language itself. The ideas. Don't think in terms of a beginning and an end. Because unlike some plot-driven entertainments, there is no closure in real life. Not really." 2. The Awakening has been adapted into two movies, and PBS made a documentary about Chopin's life in 1999. Scroll Up and Get Your Copy!

BOOK EXCERPT:

When The Awakening was first published in 1899, it shocked the sensibilities of both the public and the critics. Kate Chopin, stung by the severe criticism, soon ceased writing. The novel all but disappeared until rediscovered mid-20th century as part of the women's movement. Twenty-eight-year-old Edna Pontillier questions her marriage to her older husband, Leonce. She frequently seeks the company of the young Robert Lebrun. Together they share a love of the sea and the romance of local lore. As their relationship progresses, Robert forces himself to move to Mexico. However, this does not stop Edna from continuing her personal journey to awaken to her greater self - to nature, both within and without her.
