The Storm Questions
Bring on the tough stuff - there’s not just one right answer.
- What would you do if you were in Alcée or Calixta's position?
- Do Alcée or Calixta love each other? Does Calixta love her husband?
- Do you think Bobinôt ever suspects anything? What about Clarisse?
- What, if anything, do you think will be the long-term repercussions of Alcée and Calixta's encounter? Why doesn't Chopin show any repercussions in the story?
- Do you think it's a coincidence that Alcée arrives at Calixta's just in time to be trapped there by the storm? What's that all about?
- Is what Calixta and Alcée do wrong?
