really liked it
Read in November, 2010

The edition that I read had Chopin's short stories first and then "The Awakening" at the end. It was a great way to see how Chopin's writing evolved so that she could actually write the Novella. I really enjoyed Chopin's writing style because she was able to describe things in ways that you could actually feel and see what she was describing. I especially liked the way she described Edna's awakening in "The Awakening" because I could feel Edna's emotional and psychological shift towards being her own person that couldn't just be labeled as "wife" and "mother". It was a great story.
