About the Author

Kate Chopin (1850-1904) was born in St. Louis and moved to Louisiana where she wrote two novels and numerous stories. She is best known for the landmark book, The Awakening (1899), which advanced an implicit assertion of erotic freedom that got it banned from libraries and curtailed Chopin's literary career. Forgotten for a time after her death, Chopin's work has been rediscovered as inspiringly free-spirited and ahead of its time.

Sandra M. Gilbert, volume editor, is professor of English emerita at the University of California, Davis. She has published numerous volumes of criticism, a memoir, and six collections of verse; most recently she is the author of Acts of Attention: The Poetry of D. H. Lawrence (1990) and Kissing the Bread: New and Selected Poems 1969-1999 (2000).

Reviews

"Chopin is not, and never has been, a writer who is easily summed up. Here we get everything--the complete stories and the novels--in one tidy, well-presented package... Chopin's richness is best swallowed in great quantities, and this new edition makes that possible." --Buffalo News
