about this book

Here is the story of Edna Pontellier, a young wife and mother. Edna experiences the first pangs of passion and desire--an awakening so intense that Edna compromises herself--changing her life forever. Chopin's portrayal of a woman's quest for freedom is considered a landmark in American fiction. Also includes: "Beyond the Bayou," "Ma'ame P        gale," "D        sir        e's Baby," "A Respectable Woman," "The Kiss," "A Pair of Silk Stockings," "The Locket," and "A Reflection."
