The awakening and selected short stories by Kate Chopin ( )
58 editions published between 1899 and 2014 in English and held by 3,610 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
First published in 1899, this beautiful, brief novel so disturbed critics and the public that it was banished for decades afterwards. Now, widely read and admired, this book 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 threaten to consume her. Here, a woman in search of self discovery turns away from convention and society, and toward the primal, irresistibly attracted to nature and the senses. -- Publisher description

Bayou folk by Kate Chopin ( Book )
43 editions published between 1894 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,284 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Best known for her novel The awakening, Kate Chopin (1851-1904) established her literary reputation with short stories about life in rural Louisiana during the late nineteenth century. After her 1870 marriage to Oscar Chopin, a Creole cotton trader and commission merchant, she lived in and around New Orleans for more than a decade until her husband's death in 1882. During these years, Chopin became acquainted with Creoles, Cajuns, and newly freed blacks. When Oscar Chopin died he was nearly bankrupt, forcing Kate and their six children to return to her family in St. Louis. Still under the spell of New Orleans, Chopin began writing and her short stories about Creole and Cajun life first appeared in magazines in 1889. The stories collected in Bayou folk (1894) present remarkably vivid snapshots of daily life in a now vanished world. Many of them highlight the relations between blacks and whites in a society where the rules of engagement still reflected the entrenched patterns of slavery some two decades after the Civil War

Bayou folk ; and, A night in Acadie by Kate Chopin ( Book )
10 editions published between 1999 and 2014 in English and held by 369 WorldCat member 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
