              The Awakening

              In The Awakening (1899), Kate Chopin introduces Edna Pontellier, the wife of a New Orleans businessman and mother of two. Despite her conventional roles as spouse and mother, Edna struggles with romantic feelings and sexual desires that ultimately lead to her own independence. The novel was quite controversial when published in 1899; Chopin was ostracized immediately after its publication.
