The scandal created by the 1899 publication of her novel, The Awakening, haunted Kate Chopin for the rest of her career. Though less shocking by modern standards, Chopin's story of Edna Pontellier illustrates the frustrations of a passionate and artistic woman who is stifled by the conventional Creole society in which she lives. In her quest for independence and a voice of her own, Edna challenges accepted roles and mores for women.
