My first experience with a #classicyouenjoyed And still one of my favorite novels of all time. #gratefulreads @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @OriginalCyn620

OriginalCyn620 I haven‘t read this one! May have to check it out! 2w
IndoorDame @OriginalCyn620 I highly recommend it! It‘s short, quiet, a sort of vignette of a group of friends on a seaside vacation. Very feminist/countercultural for its time. I find it emotional. (edited) 2w

You get into the confusion Edna feels about her life and the people in it from the jump. Chopin perfectly captures the stifling atmosphere of Louisiana which reflects Edna‘s state of mind too. I feel like that‘s a Thing with Southern writers: they‘re heady & atmospheric. My version included a few of her short stories & I forgot she wrote Désirée‘s Baby. Incredibly aspirational from a short story writer‘s standpoint.

This book was pretty much perfect! So simple and lyrical, and a very timely read for just after Madam Bovary - sidenote that it goes very well with Taylor Swift‘s new song 😍

I was so impressed by the calm writing style that described such intense emotions so beautifully, so recognisably. Edna felt so familiar even tho she‘s fro a continent away in a time I‘ve never lived in. Can‘t believe I haven‘t read this before!

MicheleinPhilly This is one of my all time favorites. I really should do a re-read. 4mo

Centique
The Awakening | Kate Chopin
post image
Pickpick

Some books are less about plot than capturing a feeling or illustrating something deeper, beyond feeling, rooted in the soul. This is that type of book
Edna has a seemingly happy life. She has not noticed she is not happy. Something in her awakens. A realisation that her choices have been mapped, that she is caught where she is, being something she never chose to be.
Chopin beautifully portrays her confusion and conflicting desires. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Centique A classic and a short read, this needs to be savoured and thought about, IMO - to get the most out of it. I can imagine it would be a great book club discussion or would be great to hear teaching around it. 8mo
Blaire Yes, we did this one for my feminist book club and we had a great discussion. 8mo

I loved this book. Kate Chopin can be a difficult read. For me, the endings you don‘t expect are what I like. That is what you get with Kate Chopin.

dory.sheade I read this book for my AP Literature class and really enjoyed it. The discussions we had (primarily those dealing with the metaphors of the birds and sea, as well as when the turning point in Edna's awakening truly was) were quite interesting. 11mo

CoffeeNBooks @LiterarySloth The first time I read it was when I was in high school, and then I read it again a few decades later. 😂 Now, I teach it every year in my AP Literature class. I rarely reread books- there are way too many books I haven't read yet! 📚 11mo
LiterarySloth If I were an English professor, I‘d be sure to teach it, too! It isn‘t one that people typically pick up. I don‘t know too many other people who have read it. 11mo
dory.sheade @LiterarySloth I feel that lol. But if you ever get the chance it's a really great read. It's slightly dystopian but most people don't realize it, and the relationships between the characters as well as the subtle questions on ethics are quite fascinating. It is definitely one of my favorite books to discuss 11mo

Day 10 #adventrecommend #FeministRead

Set in 1899, this story follows Edna as she discovers herself while struggling with her role of being a wife & mother. It focuses societal expectations of women & being trapped in those roles. There is infidelity in this story & Edna comes off as selfish as a result of her struggle with her role in society & her depression.

I had a thin paperback copy of this in middle or high school which I‘ve long since lost or given away. It was the first piece of classic literature I fell in love with on my own. I remember responding to the fact that it was written by a woman in 1899, and deeply identifying with the main character. I got the urge to reread it tonight, and the screenshot above is from the free kindle version if anyone wants to add it to their digital library.

There are so many women authors of classic literature who don't get enough attention that this #agameoffavorites was difficult for me. I decided on The Awakening by Kate Chopin because even though it was written in the 1800s its story is incredibly relevant. Plus every time I'm in the ocean this book still manages to haunt me ?. Kate Chopin was also "drawn to the . . . work of George Sands" which is pretty awesome.

The imagery of this novel was gorgeous, but that may be the best I can say. Like much classic American literature, The Awakening seemed to lack a driving plot. There was more theoretical narrative than there was intriguing arc. Chopin's writing is quite beautiful and I wish I could have enjoyed her novel more.

I listened to this #audiobook that I got from #librivox not knowing what to expect from it. It was on a reading list of #classics that I have been slowing going through for about 20 years now.
This was a very intriguing novel that tackles themes of early #feminism such as repression, the “role of a woman,” a woman‘s desires as an individual, and going against conventions.
I really liked this book. Pick it up and give it a read/listen.

lyradora I had an ambivalent reaction to The Awakening when I first read it in college. It left me very angry -- but a lot of older books make me angry. It has grown on me in the years since, as I have come to appreciate Chopin and understood what she was trying to say. 2y

lyradora Of course, The Story of an Hour is brilliant. 2y
CoffeeNBooks @lyradora Yes, that's a great short story! 2y
CoffeeNBooks @lyradora I appreciate that Chopin wrote on a topic that, at the time, was completely unacceptable- a woman finding herself unfulfilled in the societally-prescribed role for her. Edna Pontellier was trying to find her way within what she felt was a confining life. 2y
lyradora @CoffeeNBooks : yeah. *sigh* I just wanted Edna to tell them all to f*** off and go make her own happy ending. She did ultimately make her own choice, but it was not the choice I wanted her to make. Like I said, ambivalent. 2y

I read this approximately 100 years ago when I was but a teenager and did not yet know I was a feminist. I didn't remember much about it except that I liked it.

Another great choice from Serial Reads! I adore this work from Chopin. Her ability to evoke the atmosphere & the languidness of Edna‘s awakening & transformation into herself is sheer perfection. If you haven‘t read this one, I highly recommend it-if you have read it before, this would be a great way to end Women‘s History Month 😉 😊💜

oOArankaOo I'm questioning my students about it for their final oral exam! They don't much like it though 🤣 2y
Zelma @oOArankaOo that‘s good bad. This was the book that changed my life in high school and opened my eyes to what literature can really be. ❤️❤️❤️ 2y
Redjewel_7734 @oOArankaOo 😂 Hopefully they‘ll at least get it in their heads enough so when they are ready to appreciate they will. A few may get it in HS bit for most I think this story takes a type of maturity that most of us just don‘t have at that point. But I still love that teachers introduce it-it‘s a challenge that‘ll pay off in the long run 😊 2y

oOArankaOo @Zelma As @Redjewel_7734 says, I think my students (though generally 17/8 y/o) are too young to really appreciate it. Compounding effect is that English is their 2nd or 3rd language, so I don't think they experience the full effect of the story. We also couldn't really discuss it in class, as we're also preparing for end of year multiple choice exams, which weighs much more for their overall grade and graduation.. 2y

"She was becoming herself and daily casting aside that fictitious self which we assume like a garment with which to appear before the world.”⠀
Oh, Edna Pontellier. She's quite the character. And, if you look at reviews of this book, quite polarizing. Regardless of how you may feel about this book, it's one of those daring stories that greatly influenced the books that followed it. We review this classic read (and five more) on the latest episode.

frailrouge I remember reading this in high school and crying near the end. I generally hated any book we were told to read as it felt like punishment. But this was breathtaking! Shifted my perspective on a lot of things. 2y

I once tried to read this book, quite some years ago, when I wasn't ready for it and I didn't finish it. But today, many years older (and hopefully wiser), I finally understood it. And it was everything. While I didn't actually like anyone in the book, I have to admire Chopin's determination to write something like this, to write Edna's boldness in wanting to be more than just a wife and a mother.

It‘s a story about infidelity, about beeing bored by/feeling trapped in marriage and motherhood.
The very honest, and even in these times modern outlook on it ( going for your own hapiness, not really thinking too much of the children) must have shocked people in the 19th century .But,I did not feel any connection to the MC. And, I can‘t see the emancipation in this which lots of others praise.
