3600 Seconds Throughout the countless hours spent giving and receiving both good and bad news there almost always seems to be that one odd story the one that just does not make sense This is definitely one of those stories The Story of an Hour by Kate Chopin is a story with a common conflict but a not so common conclusion It is unclear at first who the antagonist is but in the end that becomes very evident The conflict in this story starts out being a womans struggle with her husbands apparent death When she is first confronted by her sister with the news of his death she reacts as most people would have reacted she wept at once with sudden wild abandonment in her sisters arms She continues this for a couple of minutes before retreating to her bedroom to sit in seclusion To this point it is still believed that the main conflict lies between her and her husbands death While in her room the reader begins to get some clues as to how she really feels When she fist enters her bedroom she is still distraught and crying She sits down in chair and stares out the window as if to wish her life was also ended Then she begins to see that it is spring time and things are blooming the sky is blue and the sun is out and nothing in world outside her bedroom is gloomy or sad Her true feelings start to come out The reader sees that she has been keeping her true feeling in because she knows that it is wrong to think the way that she does She is finally free free free from her husbands grasp Nevermore will she feel trapped by him and his controlling nature She would live for herself At this point the reader begins to realize that the conflict in this story was not between her and her husbands
