Publisher's Summary

Kate Chopin was an American author of short stories and novels, mostly with a Louisiana Creole background. Today she is now considered a forerunner of the feminist authors of the 20th century. This powerful story concerns a wife who learns that her overbearing husband has been killed. The short period of mourning turns to the hope of her new freedom - but then comes the very unexpected climax.

Short story by Kate Chopin

I was not familiar with Kate Chopin's work before but found this story very dark and almost pointless.

Everything was wrong about this book- the short length of under one hour and taking an hour to tell a story that could be told as a joke in less than 60 seconds.

A perfect short story

The story of an Hour is a great introduction to Kate Chopin's work.
