The Storm

The Storm

by Kate Chopin

Analysis: Tough-o-Meter

We've got your back. With the Tough-O-Meter, you'll know whether to bring extra layers or Swiss army knives as you summit the literary mountain. (10 = Toughest)

(3) Base Camp

This story is pretty straightforward, although the characters' names are unfamiliar to most of us and there's some use of Creole dialect. However, it's usually pretty easy to figure out what the characters are saying in context, and it's not like these are the weirdest names in all of literature. (Huckleberry Finn, we're looking at you!)
