Kate Chopin by Prof. Harold Bloom

Initially known for her short stories and articles, Kate Chopin was considered to be little more than a regional writer. Published in 1899, her second novel, The Awakening, received little attention until the 1950s. Now, Chopin's work is known for its play with narrative styles and its examination into the complexities of women's interior lives. This edition is newly updated and featuring supplemental materials such as a chronology, bibliography, and an index.


The accounts offer students an opportunity to absorb serious analytical styles. ... excellent critical guide sets edited by Harold Bloom...recommended picks for audiences of young adults studying literature.

This collection of previously published essays, edited by the distinguished literary scholar Harold Bloom, is an excellent addition to the Wells critical canon.
