Download or read book entitled The Awakening (Golden Deer Classics) by author: Kate Chopin which was release on 10 June 2017 and published by Oregan Publishing with total page 100 pages . This book available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle Format. The Awakening shocked turn-of-the-century readers with its forthright treatment of sex and suicide. Departing from literary convention, Kate Chopin failed to condemn her heroine's desire for an affair with the son of a Louisiana resort owner, whom she meets on vacation. The power of sensuality, the delusion of ecstatic love, and the solitude that accompanies the trappings of middle- and upper-class life are the themes of this now-classic novel. As Kaye Gibbons points out in her Introduction, Chopin "was writing American realism before most Americans could bear to hear that they were living it."
