I read The Story of an Hour, written in 1894, with my real life book club, and we had an interesting discussion about the themes in this story and similar ones in some other stories we read at the same time, like The Yellow Wall Paper Kate Chopin, a US author, was one of the earliest feminist authors The main character runs the gamut of emotions in just a single hour of her life.Louise Mallard, a young wife with heart trouble, has just been told by her sister that Louise s husband was killed in a terrible train accident She weeps wild and abandoned tears, then goes to her room and shuts herself away, to contemplate her life and what lies before her now And what comes to her, I think, surprises even her.She was young, with a fair, calm face, whose lines bespoke repression and even a certain strength But now there was a dull stare in her eyes, whose gaze was fixed away off yonder on one of those patches of blue sky It was not a glance of reflection, but rather indicated a suspension of intelligent thought There was something coming to her and she was waiting for it, fearfully What was it She did not know it was too subtle and elusive to name But she felt it, creeping out of the sky, reaching toward her through the sounds, the scents, the color that filled the air.Louise begins to realize that now she can live for herself, not bending to

HA All I can say about this SUPER short classic story without giving away the shocker of an ending is.Poor Louise.

One of the most richly written inside look to the restraints the institution of marriage once had on women Oh and the ending is absolutely delicious Easily one of my favorite shorts The prose is alluring and emotionally captivating, and despite the brevity of the text, this story packs a severe punch complete with a twist laden in tragic irony.
