This is a look at The Awakening by Kate Chopin When you first look at the life of Edna you think there is not much to discuss Edna is a married woman who at first seems vaguely satisfied with her life--she grew fond of her husband realizing with some unaccountable satisfaction that no trace of passion or excessive and fictitious warmth colored her affection thereby threatening its dissolution Chopin 558 Edna doesnt know what she wants from life It is evident from the way she tries to change her life to make it better that she wants her own happiness She refuses to stay home on Tuesdays which she is expected to do to satisfy the social conventions of the time She spends more time on her art She goes to races and parties all the time All of this doesnt seem to help her maintain happiness all the time There were days when she was very happy without knowing why She was happy to be alive and breathing when her whole being seemed to be one with the sunlight the color the odors the luxuriant warmth of some perfect Southern day There were days when she was unhappy she did not know why when it did not seem worth while to be glad or sorry to be dead or alive when life appeared to her like a grotesque Pandemonium and humanity like worms struggling blindly toward inevitable annihilation Chopin 588 Edna struggled to make her life more fulfilling Edna wanted what Passion excitement She states to the Doctor But I dont want anything but my own way That is wanting a good deal of course when you have to trample upon the lives the hearts the prejudices of others--but no matter--still I shouldnt want to trample upon the little lives Chopin 629 In the title
