Katherine O’Flaherty, better known as Kate Chopin, is widely considered as one of America’s greatest novelists, excelling especially in the short story form. A native of Louisiana, her Creole, Cajun, Irish, and French background helped provide a rich source of ideas for her literary works. Regarded as one of the original feminist writers, her stories not only gave women a voice, but also offered a fresh viewpoint on society as a whole. 

This collection of stories includes “The Kiss”; “A Pair of Silk Stockings”; “The Story of an Hour”; “A Respectable Woman”; “The Storm”; “The Lillies”; and “Ma’ame Pelagie.”

About the Author

Kate Chopin (1851–1901) was born Katherine O’Flaherty in St. Louis in 1851. She was a popular social belle, admired for her wit and beauty. In 1871 she married Oscar Chopin and lived in Louisiana until his sudden death in 1882. Chopin began writing about the Creole and Cajun people in the South, gaining acclaim for her finely crafted short stories. Upon publication in 1899, her now-classic novel The Awakening was widely condemned for its controversial themes, and Chopin was devastated by its harsh critical reception. She died in 1904, denied in her lifetime the recognition she desperately wanted and richly deserved.
