When first published in 1899 The Awakening shocked readers with its honest treatment of female marital infidelity Audiences accustomed to the pieties of late Victorian romantic fiction were taken aback by Chopin s daring portrayal of a woman trapped in a stifling marriage who seeks and finds passionate physical love outside the straitened confines of her domestic situation Aside from its unusually frank treatment of a then controversial subject the novel is widely admired today for its literary qualities Edmund Wilson characterized it as a work quite uninhibited and beautifully written which anticipates D H Lawrence in its treatment of infidelity Although the theme of marital infidelity no longer shocks few novels have plumbed the psychology of a woman involved in an illicit relationship with the perception artistry and honesty that Kate Chopin brought to The Awakening Now available in this inexpensive edition it offers a powerful and provocative reading experience to modern readers
