Reviews

This gorgeous edition of Chopin's 1899 classic features period photos of the novel's New Orleans location and a durable plastic dust jacket.

"Interesting and Timely . . . Chopin's oracular feminism and prophetic prophetic psychology almost outweigh her estimable literary talents.""--Newsweek""Chopin shares the boldness in technical experiment and moral relativism of her contemporaries in the 1890s . . . a writer of considerable sensibility and talent . . . in her stories she worked for breadth. In height, however, and depth, it is "The Awakening" that will serve as her passport in to our time and posterity.""The Times Literary Supplement" (London)"Kate Chopin was long before her time in dealing with sexual passion . . . and the personal emotions of women.""--The New York Review of Books
