Written in English

60 pages

It wasn't that Athénaise's husband mistreated her. Nor did she hate him. It was just being married she despised — to have him always there, 'his ugly bare feet — washing them in my tub, befo' my very eyes!' Athénaise flees, but in New Orleans, dwelling . with wise Madame Sylvie, an extraordinary transformation takes place.

Heavy with the languor of the deep South, — like her celebrated book Kate Chopin's stories vibrantly depict women's The Awakening instinctive efforts to reconcile their lives and their hearts' desires.
