Format: Paperback
Kate Chopin's novel was not widely appreciated until the women's movement rescued it from publishing oblivion. The story of Edna Pontillier's journey to discover herself is one that all women would probably enjoy-- whether they can identify with Edna or whether they are completely dissimilar. Whatever your final opinion about the story's outcome, this novel will spark thought, discussion, and awakenings of many kinds. Do not pass this book up.

Format: Paperback
Kate Chopin is definitely best known for enveloping the concepts of women's desires, independence, and control of their lives in her writing. Her masterpiece, 'The Awakening', is one example of how she used these concepts. While this book was condemned during its time, it is a very intriguing read.
"The Awakening" received condemnation in 1899 because of its sexual openness. It has since been rediscovered and taught in classrooms across America. Chopin's power to almost foresee the future reveals her insight. She knew women were eventually going to realize they deserved equal rights, and she was going to do something to help fight for it, even if it didn't result in immediate recognition or gratification. Chopin wanted women to be heard.
Because of her perseverance and confidence, eventually her words were shared. The reader doesn't need to be a feminist to be able to enjoy "The Awakening." Indeed, it is centered on the process of a woman freeing herself from her responsibilities in order to focus on what she wants for herself; therefore, this theme can and should be compelling and motivational to both males and females. It is for these reasons "The Awakening" should be celebrated and appreciated by people of any race, age, gender or background.
