Questioning her love for her husband, and opening herself up to the possibilities of other men and a life outside of societal convention leads to a gradual awakening of her desires. Chopin' s fascinating exploration of one woman challenging the expectation that surrounds her is powerful, daring and ultimately tragic in its conclusions. Constrained and confined by the limitations surrounding marriage and motherhood in the late 1800s, Edna Pontellier begins to challenge the notion of femininity through her thoughts and actions. HarperCollins is proud to present its new range of best-loved, essential classics. ' I would give up the unessential; I would give my money, I would give my life for my children; but I wouldn' t give myself. ' Heralded as one of the first instances of feminist literature and rejected at its time of publication by the literary set on grounds of moral distaste, Kate Chopin' s The Awakening caused consternation in 1899.

Before the critical success of The Awakening in the 1970s, Kate Chopin was best known for her short stories, which had secured her reputation as a ' local colorist' . As testified by the selection in this volume, Chopin' s stories reveal her as an observant, compassionate and often humorous writer, alert to the foibles, weaknesses and small triumphs of human nature. Unfolding in the sensuous environment of Southern Louisiana, The Awakening is an evocative story of self-discovery and female emancipation, as the young Edna Pontellier reclaims her own individuality, refusing to be defined by her roles of wife and mother. Widely censured at the time of its publication in 1899, the novel has since become one of the most popular classics in the American canon, and continues to tantalize readers with its powerful, ambivalent ending.
