The Awakening Chapter 35 Summary
In the morning, Edna tries to convince herself that things are better (or will be better) with Robert than they were the night before.
If he really loves her, she tells herself, he will come to her.
But she can’t stop thinking about him.
The maid brings her a note from her son Raoul. He wants bonbons, and he tells her that ten tiny pigs have been born to his grandmother’s pig, Lidie.
A letter also comes from Edna’s husband saying he will be back in early March.
Then she gets a note from Arobin. It’s a "good morning!" note. It assures her of his devotion.
She replies to her husband. It’s a friendly note, but full of all sorts of evasions.
Edna puts Arobin’s note under the stove lid.
Robert does not visit.
Two days go by.
Arobin comes to her house and insists on taking her for a drive. He seems to feel very strongly about her.
Arobin’s desire for Edna is intensifying.
Edna, however, feels nothing.
