The Awakening is one of the earliest examples of feminism in literature, and the books criticism of acceptable female social roles and emphasis on womens sexuality caused it to be received with a mixture of praise and criticism.
Set in Louisiana, Edna Pontellier is a wife, a mother, and a member of the Presbyterian Church, but has never felt comfortable being defined by any of these roles. Edna yearns for freedom, independence, and self-fulfillmentall of which seem antithetical to the life she has fallen into. When she departs to Grand Isle with her husband and children for a vacation, Ednas quiet dissatisfaction becomes more problematic, as she gets a glimpse of what life free from obligation and social constraints could be like.

This edition includes other short stories by Kate Chopin, including Beyond the Bayou, Maame Pelagie, Desirees Baby, A Respectable Woman, The Kiss, A Pair of Silk Stockings, The Locket and The Reflection.
