WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Kate Chopin's powerful story of art and independence is set in New Orleans at the turn-of-the-20th-century. The Awakening is a compelling story of a restless young wife discovering her own sexual and emotional autonomy. Immediately banned upon its publication in 1899, The Awakening was rediscovered in the 1970s and remains an American literary classic today. It is alive with jazz, blues, ragtime and opera, rich with the lush decadence of the New Orlean's French Quarter
