"She grew daring and reckless. Overestimating her strength. She wanted to swim far out. Where no woman had swum before."

Book Description:

Kate Chopin's classic, an American Anna Karenina, joins Canongate's Canons series.

With an introduction by Barbara Kingsolver

From the Publisher:

Edna Pontellier is a young woman living comfortably in the beautiful city of New Orleans. She is fond of her husband and proud of her sons but finds it impossible to accept that “for women it is a holy privilege to efface themselves as individuals.” She fights back in the only way she knows, and her solution is extreme. Infamous in its time, The Awakening is now recognized as a radical work of fiction—sensuous, arresting, and clear–eyed in its commitment to freedom and independence. Kate Chopin was born in St. Louis, Missouri in 1850; The Awakening was her third novel.

Book Description HarperCollins Publishers Inc, United States, 2011. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. First published in 1899, this beautiful, brief novel so disturbed critics and the public that it was banished for decades afterward. Now widely read and admired, The Awakening has been hailed as an early vision of woman s emancipation. This sensuous book tells of a woman s abandonment of her family, her seduction, and her awakening to desires and passions that threated to consumer her. Originally entitled A Solitary Soul, this portrait of twenty-eight-year-old Edna Pontellier is a landmark in American fiction, rooted firmly in the romantic tradition of Herman Melville and Emily Dickinson. Here, a woman in search of self-discovery turns away from convention and society, and toward the primal, from convention and society, and toward the primal, irresistibly attracted to nature and the senses The Awakening, Kate Chopin s last novel, has been praised by Edmund Wilson as beautifully written. And Willa Cather described its style as exquisite, sensitive, and iridescent. This edition of The Awakening also includes a selection of short stories by Kate Chopin. This seems to me a higher order of feminism than repeating the story of woman as victim. Kate Chopin gives her female protagonist the central role, normally reserved for Man, in a meditation on identity and culture, consciousness and art. -- From the introduction by Marilynne Robinson.
