Kate Chopin by Prof. Harold Bloom


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.


Harold Bloom adds some fantastic critical literary guides, providing interpretations and issues that should reach a wide audience from adults to young adults at the high school and college levels.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
