Kate Chopin: Domestic Goddess 18511904 (Note Some biographers, including Emily Toth, cite 1850 as Chopin's birthdate, others, including Domestic Goddess Kate Chopin was born Katherine O'Flaherty, in St http://www.womenwriters.net/domesticgoddess/chopin1.htm
Extractions: Domestic Goddess Kate Chopin was born Katherine O'Flaherty, in St. Louis, Missouri. Her parents were from Irish and Creole backgrounds. When Chopin was widowed at 32, she began writing to support herself and her six children. She was widely accepted as a writer of local color fiction, and was generally successful until the publication of her scandalous novel The Awakening , in 1899. Perched between the social conservatism of the nineteenth century and dealing with tabooed themes too soon for the growingly open twentieth, the novel's sexually aware and shocking protagonist, Edna Pontillier, pushed Chopin into literary oblivion. Chopin, and her memorable characters and stories, finally emerged from society's morally imposed ostracization during the resurgence of women's rights in the early 1970's. Even today, much of the criticism of Chopin's most famous work centers on Edna Pontillier's morals is she a fallen woman, a bad mother, a selfish human being? Why does the character still, in an era where sexual openness is not totally condemned, point us toward a discussion of what makes a woman "bad?" What does the novel say about constrictions and constructions of the feminine role, today and during the time it was written? What does the novel say about human consciousness, and conscience?

Extractions: click here Home Kate Chopin 1851 - 1904 The Awakening . Yet because of it's controversial nature, the novel was met with shock and outrage. The reaction prompted Kate's gradual withdrawal from writing and contributed to her much delayed entry into the halls of literary fame. A master storyteller, she was 75 years ahead of her time. Kate O'Flaherty was born in St. Louis in 1851. Brought up by three generations of widows, she was strong and self-reliant. At the age 19, she married the man she loved, a French-Creole from Louisiana, Oscar Chopin. They settled down in New Orleans to a comfortable life and happy marriage. Oscar encouraged Kate's independent, if somewhat unconventional nature. For four years, Oscar ran the plantation and general store, and Kate raised their children. In 1882, their life abruptly changed again, when Oscar died of swamp fever. Kate was left, at 31, with six children under twelve. For over a year she managed the plantation and store, finally yeilding to her mother's pressure to return to St. Louis. Her mother died the following year.

Used by permission of the publisher. Kate Chopin, 1851-1904 Chopin, Kate 1851-1904, Writer. Although Katherine O'Flaherty Chopin was a native of St. Louis (born 8 February 1851) and spent barely 14 years in Louisiana, her fiction is identified with the South. At 19, Kate O'Flaherty married Oscar Chopin, a young cotton broker, and moved with him to New Orleans and later to his family home in Cloutierville, La., near the Red River. After Oscar died in 1882, she returned with their six children to St. Louis; but when, eight years later, she began to write, it was the Creoles and 'Cadians of her Louisiana experiences that animated her fiction. Distinctly unsentimental in her approach, she often relied on popular period motifs, such as the conflict of the Yankee businessman and the Creole, a theme that informs her first novel, At Fault (1890), and several of her short stories. These vivid and economical tales, richly flavored with local dialect, provide penetrating views of the heterogeneous culture of south Louisiana. Many of them were collected in Bayou Folk (1894) and A Night in Acadie . Chopin's second novel

Extractions: (1851-1904), novelist Born in St. Louis, Missouri, on February 8, 1851, to a prominent family, Katherine O'Flaherty read widely as a girl. In June 1870 she married Oscar Chopin, with whom she lived in his native New Orleans, Louisiana, and later on a plantation near Cloutiersville, Louisiana, until his death in 1882. After his death she began to write about the Creole and Cajun people she had observed in the South. Her first novel, At Fault In 1899 Chopin published The Awakening, a realistic novel about the sexual and artistic awakening of a young wife and mother who abandons her family and eventually commits suicide. This work was roundly condemned in its time because of its sexual frankness and its portrayal of an interracial marriage and went out of print for more than 50 years. When it was rediscovered in the 1950s, critics marveled at the beauty of its writing and its modern sensibility. Chopin's work has been categorized within the "local color" genre. Her stories were collected in Bayou Folk (1894) and A Night in Acadie (1897). She died in St. Louis, Missouri, on August 22, 1904.

This daughter of a wealthy Irish Catholic immigrant family of St. Louis, Missouri, lost her father, a pioneer of the Pacific Railroad, in a train accident, and her brother George, after he had been captured by Union forces during the Civil War. In her young age, at the St. Louis Academy of the Sacred Heart, she was a passionate of literature, then became a "belle" of Saint Louis after her graduation in 1868, smoking cigarettes (something unusual for a woman in her time) and walking unaccompanied through the streets. After she married Oscar Chopin, a a cotton Creole factor, in 1870, she settled in New Orleans and progressively she became acquainted with that Creole community that she depicted in her writings. In 1883, Oscar died of swamp fever, and in 1885, after she had moved with her mother to St Louis, Kate lost her too. She was a widow with six children when her family physician suggested her to express her sorrows and disappointments in writing. This was the start of a fifteen years literary career, publishing two novels and over one hundred short stories, ending with Kate's death in 1904, of a cerebral hemorrhage.

Chopin touched off her greatest controversy with the publication of her novel The Awakening in 1899, which tells the tale of a young woman who commits adultery and suicide. The harsh reception of that book, now considered a classic, led Chopin to give up writing for a long period. She wrote little after its publication, and found publishers reluctant to publish what she did produce. Kate Chopin died of a brain hemorrhage in 1904. Browse: Books
