Item Description: Herbert S. Stone and Co, Chicago and New York, 1899. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. RARE FIRST EDITION of Chopin's groundbreaking novel; a foundational feminist work. "No other American book was so maligned, neglected for so long, and then embraced so quickly and with such enthusiasm as Kate Chopin's 1899 novel The Awakening. And none has been so thoroughly redeemed as The Awakening. Thought vulgar, morbid, and disturbing in Chopin's time, it has for the past quarter of a century been seen as sensitive, passionate, and inspiring. Forgotten for two generations, it is today known by countless people in dozens of countries, and Kate Chopin has become among the most widely read of classic American authors" (Bernard Koloski, Awakenings). "To a degree that was ahead of her time, she rejected both conservative and liberal didacticism and discarded traditional assumptions in an attempt to depict honestly and empathetic ally the inner life of women" (American National Biography Online). Chicago and New York: Herbert S. Stone and Co, 1899. Octavo, original pictorial green cloth stamped in red and green; custom silk box. Early owner signature ("Bob Myers Babcock") on front free endpaper. Toning to spine with some spotting, small bookseller's ticket to pastedown (offsetting to opposite); text generally very clean and fresh. A very good copy of an extremely difficult book to find in collectible condition. Bookseller Inventory # 1325

Item Description: Oxford University Press Aug 2008, 2008. Taschenbuch. Book Condition: Neu. 196x128x25 mm. Neuware - 'She wanted to swim far out, where no woman had swum before.' Kate Chopin was one of the most individual and adventurous of nineteenth-century american writers, whose fiction explored new and often startling territory. When her most famous story, The Awakening, was first published in 1899, it stunned readers with its frank portrayal of the inner word of Edna Pontellier, and its daring criticisms of the limits of marriage and motherhood. The subtle beauty of her writing was contrasted with her unwomanly and sordid subject-matter: Edna's rejection of her domestic role, and her passionate quest for spiritual, sexual, and artistic freedom. From her first stories, Chopin was interested in independent characters who challenged convention. This selection, freshly edited form the first printing of each text, enables readers to follow her unfolding career as she experimented with a broad range of writing, from tales for children to decadent fin-de siecle sketches. The Awakening is set alongside thirty-two short stories, illustrating the spectrum of the fiction from her first published stories to her 1898 secret masterpiece, 'The Storm'. ABOUT THE SERIES: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the widest range of literature from around the globe. Each affordable volume reflects Oxford's commitment to scholarship, providing the most accurate text plus a wealth of other valuable features, including expert introductions by leading authorities, helpful notes to clarify the text, up-to-date bibliographies for further study, and much more. 410 pp. Englisch.
