On the Artistic Features of the Awakening by Kate Chopin

Zhan ZHANG

Abstract


Kate Chopin was one of the famous American feminist writers. Her famous work “The Awakening” is a song in praise of the fight for women’s fate and worthy of a peculiar flower in American literature. The paper gives an analysis of the ideological content and artistic form of the novel. From the simple words of the description of the heroine Edna’s solitary state in her relationship with others around her and with the objects as symbols about her, from the French in the novel, which is another unique feature, Chopin gives us a chance to appreciate a song in praise of the fight for women’s fate and worthy of a peculiar flower in American
literature.
