This book is a great collection of Kate Chopin's writings

This book is a great collection of Kate Chopin's writings. Chopin truly has a way of portraying women in her writings much differently than society in her day believed they should be. If you read her works knowing this, you will come to respect her work the way I have.

Kate Chopin (/ˈʃoʊpæn/, also US: /ʃoʊˈpæn, ˈʃoʊpən/; born Katherine O'Flaherty; February 8, 1850 – August 22, 1904) was an American author of short stories and novels based in Louisiana. She is now considered by some scholars to have been a forerunner of American 20th-century feminist authors of Southern or Catholic background, such as Zelda Fitzgerald, and is one of the most frequently read and recognized writers of Louisiana Creole heritage.

The explosive novel At Fault (1890) centers on a love triangle between a strong-willed young widow, a stiff St. Louis businessman, and the man's alcoholic wife. In the story collections Bayou Folk (1894) and A Night in Acadie (1897), Chopin transforms the local color sketch into taut, perfectly calibrated tales of post-Civil War bayou culture.

Kate Chopin (1850–1904) was born in St. Louis. She moved to Louisiana where she wrote two novels and numerous stories. Because The Awakening was widely condemned, publication of Chopin’s third story collection was cancelled. The Awakening was rediscovered by scholars in the 1960s and 1970s and is her best-known work.

In her own time, the works of Kate Chopin (1851–1904) shocked readers and critics with their challenge to contemporary mores. Her stories and novels reveal unsparing truths about the interior lives of women, some of whom experienced profound disillusionment with the rigid yoke of marriage, combined with an unfulfilled longing for self-realization.

Kate Chopin's novel At Fault explores the subject of divorce. It was published in 1890 and follows a widow who falls in love with a new man, but won't marry him when she learns he is divorced. Instead she convinces him to remarry his wife and then try to make the marriage work. At Fault highlights some of the double standards in society and explores the topic of whether or not divorce is bad. This book is considered to be a precursor to Chopin's later book The Awakening and an early exploration of her feminist ideas.
Reviews about At Fault (7):
Great story, ahead of its time. I needed some help with the French words and the dialect of some of the characters was hard to understand. But overall a wonderful storyline.
Very good story that keeps you holding your breath at the end to see how it turns out. Loved the historical aspects of Southern Society.
This book is awful in that it's very hard to understand the verbiage used for the Creole accents. I literally couldn't read/understand half of the wording. I have to complete a final writing project for my American Literature class and this book was on the list to choose from. I ultimately ended up going with "This Side of Paradise" by F. Scott Fitzgerald, which isn't much better.
Great story, written many years ago.
As ever, Kate Chopin's exquisite imagery fills the many delightful passages in this, her first published novel. However; many appallingly casual, highly offensive racial slurs spoiled this one for me. I found it hard to appreciate the finely-crafted white characters and apt depiction of moral struggle, whilst being so frequently derailed by the vulgar depictions of black servants. Yes, it was 1890, so a few racist references might be expected - perhaps cringed at and overlooked - but we're talking dozens of n-words, scores of disrespectful depictions, and too many ugly incidents to be ignored. What a shame.
I really thought that this was going to be a good book, but I was really let down. Not only was the book not good, but the language in the book made it difficult to follow.
It was just a text book for school, but it was delivered as promised.
Out of date and racist peace of literature.
