Story Of An Hour Woman

Satisfactory Essays
Louise Mallard just finds out that her husband has been killed in a horrific accident at work. She must come to term with being a widow. In the hour after receiving notice of the death, she quietly reviews her life as she currently lives in a time where women working outside the home is not an option. The author of this story does not just focus on the grief that is faced by women in the late 19th century, but also how women do not have the luxury to grieve and must think their next step to ensure their survival. That moment of clarity comes light in Kate Chopin’s “The Story of an Hour”.
