About Kate Chopin & Emily Toth

See more books from this Author
Kate Chopin (1850-1904) was born in St. Louis. She moved to Louisiana where she wrote two novels and numerous stories. Because The Awakening was widely condemned, publication of Chopin's third story collection was cancelled. The Awakening was rediscovered by scholars in the 1960s and 1970s and is her best-known work.

An intriguing collection of stories by the author of The Awakening (see Toth's biography of Chopin on p. 1447)—a book that so appalled her public that her publisher cancelled the collection she called A Vocation and a Voice in 1899.
