From 11:00PM PDT on Friday, July 1 until 5:00AM PDT on Saturday, July 2, the Shmoop engineering elves will be making tweaks and improvements to the site. That means Shmoop will be unavailable for use during that time. Thanks for your patience!
The Story of an Hour Writers often repeat themes throughout their works and Chopin was no
different. In fact, you can even say she was obsessed with the notion
and character of a woman trying to buck marriage. Take a look at her
short story "The Story of an Hour" for a super-condensed version of The Awakening. Since this story is so short, it's easy to read in class and discuss.
The Storm This is another short story by Chopin about a woman who isn't faithful to her husband. This one was too controversial for Chopin to publish during her lifetime.
