The Awakening

Complete, Authoritative Text With Biographical, Historical, and Cultural Contexts, Critical History, and Essays from Contemporary Critical Perspectives

Weitere Formate

This revision of a widely adopted critical edition presents the 1969 Seyersted text of Kate Chopin's novel along with critical essays that introduce students to "The Awakening" from the perspectives of feminism, gender (new essay), new historical, deconstructionist, and reader response criticism. An additional new essay demonstrates how various approaches can be combined. The text and essays are complemented by introductions to "The Awakening" and to the criticism, a glossary of critical terms, and (for the first time) contextual documents.

NANCY A. WALKER is Professor of English at Vanderbilt University.
