The Story Of An Hour Pdf
“The Story of an Hour,” is a short story written by Kate Chopin on April 19, 1894. It was originally published in Vogue on December 6, 1894, as “The Dream of an Hour”. It was later reprinted in St. Louis Life on January 5, 1895, as “The Story of an Hour”. The title of the short story refers to the time elapsed between the moments at which the protagonist, Louise Mallard, hears that her husband is dead, and when she discovers that he is alive after all. “The Story of an Hour” was controversial by American standards of the 1890s because it features a female protagonist who feels liberated by the news of her husband’s death. In Unveiling Kate Chopin, Emily Toth argues that Chopin “had to have her heroine die” in order to make the story publishable”.
The Story Of An Hour Summary
“The Story of an Hour” expresses every emotion that Louise Mallard feels after she finds out about the death of her husband. The very first sentence of the story states, “Knowing that Mrs. Mallard was afflicted with a heart trouble, great care was taken to break to her as gently as possible the news of her husband’s death”. As the news is broken to her as delicately as possible, Mrs. Mallard begins weeping uncontrollably into the arms of her sister, Josephine. Mrs. Mallard is very heartbroken by the report of her husband’s death, but when her grief subsides, she goes away to her room to be alone. She sits down in an armchair that is facing a window and looks out at all of nature. All of a sudden, as she is gazing outside this window, a feeling comes to her. A feeling that she keeps trying to push back, but she is unable to. It is a feeling of freedom. She knows that when the time of his funeral comes and she sees him with his arms folded across his chest, she will feel sad again. But as she looks ahead at her future years without her husband, she feels enlightened.
