Edna Pontellier, a young wife and mother, refuses to be caged by married and domestic life and claims for herself moral and erotic freedom. Through careful, subtle changes of style, Kate Chopin shows Edna's transformation-and its tragic consequences. This unique volume also includes some of Chopin's finest stories, among them "At the 'Cadian Ball" and "Dsire's Baby." Edited with an Introduction by Sandra M. Gilbert

Kate Chopin (1850-1904) was born in St. Louis. She moved to Louisiana where she wrote two novels and numerous stories. Because The Awakeningwas widely condemned, publication of Chopin's third story collection was cancelled. The Awakeningwas rediscovered by scholars in the 1960s and 1970s and is her best-known work. Sandra M. Gilbert teaches at the University of California, Davis.
