I think Chopin does this in her brilliant short story The Story of an Hour. It is not always what we are told, but also what we are not told. And, not only that, what we can make assumptions and inferences about. Chopin does such an amazing job of taking us through Mrs. Mallard’s point of view in such a short span of two pages (we are literally in her head when she hears the news and the short aftermath), yet there literally is volumes to talk about once you are finished reading. And, this is a brilliant story with a high dose of irony in it as well.

When Kate Chopin’s The Story of an Hour was written and published. It was written on April 19, 1894, and first published in Vogue on December 6, 1894, under the title The Dream of an Hour, one of nineteen Kate Chopin stories that Vogue published. It was reprinted in St. Louis Life on January 5, 1895. The St. Louis Life version includes several changes in the text. Questions and answers about The Story of an Hour.

Artist Gemma Correll's quirky illustrations provide a perfect In these four stories, Kate Chopin subtly captures the intricate interior lives of a generation of women.

The story starts with the news that Mr. Brently Mallard has died in a railroad accident. Richards, Mr. Mallard’s friend, is first to hear this shocking news and he informed the Mallard family immediately.

The story starts with the news that Mr. Mrs. Louise Mallard has heart disease, so great care is taken in informing Mrs. Mallard about her husband’s death. She goes wild with grief. When the storm of grief has subsided, she locks herself in her bedroom. Sitting on an armchair near the open window of her room, she looks at the blue sky, physically exhausted. The spring air smells of upcoming rain, of fresh greenery and flowers. She can hear a distant voice singing a song, countless sparrows twittering madly somewhere.

Short stories are generally smaller in scope than novels, so it works well for the subject of "The Story of an Hour" . And what about the "story" part? This literary work is both a story and a "story"; it's a story Kate Chopin wrote and a "story" Mrs. Mallard lives.

Short stories are generally smaller in scope than novels, so it works well for the subject of "The Story of an Hour" to be limited to events that can happen in only an hour's time. We can read about the things that happen to Mrs. Mallard in just about the same amount of time that it takes for them to happen, which is pretty cool.

Kate Chopin was born Katherine O'Flaherty in St. Louis, Missouri, on February 8, 1851. Although she was brought up in a wealthy and socially elite Catholic family, Chopin's childhood was marred by tragedies. The book explores the social and psychological consequences of a woman caught in an unhappy marriage in 19th century America, is now considered a classic of the feminist movement and caused such an uproar in the community that Chopin almost entirely gave up writing. Chopin did try her hand at a few short stories, most of which were not even published.

Its seriously only 4 pages long. If I had known that, I wouldnt have purchased it but I enjoyed it.

I've read this story a dozen times at least, in awe of the author's efficient and vivid use of language. Each word you can tell was carefully assembled with meticulous care.
Clodebd
I loved this story and the twisted ending.

Good reading.
Tegore
As usual, it is Kate Chopin. That says it all to the initiated reader. Enjoy!

It is an extremely short story, but it is wonderfully written and it took me through multiple moods. The ending, which I won't disclose, is a gem.
Perhaps somewhat disappointing, she finally had her moment of freedom. Good read, although too short.

Chopin packs a lot of emotion in this short story. The theme of freedom is important to Mrs. Mallard when she learns her husband died in a railroad accident. She admits that she is looking forward to being free "body and soul" which emphasizes her repressive state of her marriage. Highly recommended short story.
Timeless truth . And as most Truth, mostly ignored , disbelieved, and denied. Should be published in all women's magazines and featured in sports and fishing periodicals . Maybe men could learn about love and women could learn about courage .(
