The Awakening

by: Kate Chopin

Just finished reading Kate Chopin’s The Awakening, which details the personal journey of society woman, Edna Pontellier. Chopin’s exquisite descriptions of Louisiana coupled with her intriguing characters are enough to keep the pages turning. I was a little disappointed with the story’s resolution, but all in all, a good summer read, filled with romance, discovery, and descriptions of the old South post-Scarlet O’Hara.
