Kate Chopin's private papers by Kate Chopin ( Book )

"Kate Chopin, according to her contemporaries, was a "woman of mysterious fascination" - and Kate Chopin's Private Papers reveals many of the author's secrets. Chopin (1850-1904), author of about a hundred short stories and two novels (The Awakening and At Fault), also kept diaries, wrote letters and poems, translated short stories and articles from the French, and worried about her career. Chopin's newly discovered manuscripts, published for the first time here, reflect her dedication to revision and improving her craft; her manuscript account books show her meticulous control of her career and her pursuit of audiences. These papers illuminate the growth of Chopin as a writer, bring into focus the reactions of critics to her work, and settle a number of controversies in Chopin studies."--BOOK JACKET.

First published in 1899, this beautiful, brief novel so disturbed critics & the public that it was banished for decades afterward. Now widely read & 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, & her awakening to desires & passions that threatened 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 & Emily Dickinson. Here, a woman in search of self-discovery turns away from convention & society, & toward the primal, from convention & society, & toward the primal, irresistibly attracted to nature & 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," & "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 & culture, consciousness & art."--The introduction by Marilynne Robinson.

Bayou folk by Kate Chopin ( Book )
41 editions published between 1894 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,196 libraries worldwide
In the decade prior to the publication of her landmark novel, The Awakening (1899), Kate Chopin wrote about ninety short stories. She gathered twenty-three of them in a collection entitled Bayou Folk in 1894, and followed that three years later with a collection of twenty-one more in A Night in Acadie. Together, these nuanced portraits of nineteenth-century inhabitants of New Orleans and Natchitoches Parish exquisitely from a sort of Southern novel of manners. Chopin was deeply influenced by the work of French and American realists. Many of the stories in Bayou Folk concern young people seeking good marriage partners and better lives for themselves. Expanding this theme into a search for balance and harmony, personal fulfillment, and cultural richness, A Night in Acadie is, Bernard Koloski notes in his Introduction, "one of America's best nineteenth-century collections of short stories -- and one of the most compassionate views of life in American realistic fiction". With a gentle, knowing gaze, Chopin evoked the distant world of Louisiana plantations and 'Cadian balls, and anticipated the thoroughly modern multi-ethnic, gender-sensitive, and sexually charged world of our century.
