Famous philosopher Jean Jacques Rousseau brilliantly said Man is born free and everywhere is in chains Anonymous Although every human being is born with a free will most of us can attest to the fact that we are in one way or the other bound to something throughout our lives Some are bound to their zeal of working and making more money others are bound to their relationships and so on While some struggle with searching for freedom a majority of them are still stuck in the first step which is the non-realization of their restraint from freedom Louis Mallard was half way between both solutions She battles throughout the story with trying to understand and accept the concept of freedom First she was scared of thinking about it then she slowly and gently realizes and learns a whole lot about being a free woman Affirming to the fact that Louise learned about freedom at the end of the story we first have to assert that she was in some sort of repression Chopin perfectly suggests this in a sentence when he says the lines of her face bespoke repressionKirszner and Mandell 223 Literature critic Lawrence Berkove in his essay Fatal Self-Assertion in Kate Chopins The Story of an Hour adds a little more to this by suggesting that It is not at all clear however what the cause of that repression was whether for instance it might have been external in society or in her marriage or whether it was internal a recognition that it takes strength to control ones feelings or whimsBerkove Just like he suggests no matter what the cause was the fact was certain that Mrs Mallard was being repressed Furthermore Berkove confirms the idea that Louise had lost some of her freedom His statement that Marriage of course restricts freedom whoever marries or even loves
