Notă biografică

Kate Chopin (1850-1904) was an American author of short stories and novels for both adults and children. She is now considered by many to have been a forerunner of feminist authors of the 20th century.

Textul de pe ultima copertă

When first published in 1899, "The Awakening" shocked readers with its honest treatment of female marital infidelity. Audiences accustomed to the pieties of late Victorian romantic fiction were taken aback by Chopin's daring portrayal of a woman trapped in a stifling marriage, who seeks and finds passionate physical love outside the straitened confines of her domestic situation.
Aside from its unusually frank treatment of a then-controversial subject, the novel is widely admired today for its literary qualities. Edmund Wilson characterized it as a work "quite uninhibited and beautifully written, which anticipates D. H. Lawrence in its treatment of infidelity."
Although the theme of marital infidelity no longer shocks, few novels have plumbed the psychology of a woman involved in an illicit relationship with the perception, artistry, and honesty that Kate Chopin brought to "The Awakening." Now available in this inexpensive edition, it offers a powerful and provocative reading experience to modern readers.
Unabridged Dover (1993) republication of the work first published by Herbert S. Stone & Co., Chicago, 1899.


Recenzii

"The novel expresses women's diffuse desire for personal and social change" Guardian "Chopin's slight, brittle and fierce novel became a classic and a cult, shocking readers with its candid and unsentimental portrait of marital infidelity. Though the subject has lost its power to outrage, the novel has not, it remains delicately bitter and acidly angry" Observer "The Awakening is indeed a remarkable achievement, not least because of its rhapsodic ending" Independent "Chopin cuts closer to the core of her heroine's feelings... The great power of The Awakening resides not in the answers it provides, but in the questions it exposes" Washington Post "It doesn't seem so daring now, but it's an inspiring model of personal crusading. Written in lyrical, restrained prose, this is not only a historical document of writer ahead of her time, but an enduringly good read." Scotsman
