Reviewer: Joyce Carol Oates

"Denounced at the time of its original publication in 1899, and out of print for decades, 'The Awakening' is an American masterpiece: the brilliantly conceived story of a woman's 'awakening' to erotic love, and to her predicament in a patriarchal society."

Reviewer: Joyce Carol Oates

"Denounced at the time of its original publication in 1899, and out of print for decades, 'The Awakening' is an American masterpiece: the brilliantly conceived story of a woman's 'awakening' to ****** love, and to her predicament in a patriarchal society."

Reviewer: Robert Cantwell, (Georgia Review)

"'The Awakening' seems to me to be the finest novel of its sort written by an American, and to rank among the world's masterpieces of short fiction."

Reviewer: Willa Cather, (Leader)

"A Creole 'Bovary' is this little novel...and I shall not attempt to say why Miss Chopin has devoted so exquisite and sensitive, well-governed a style to so trite and sordid a theme."

"It was not necessary for a writer of so great refinement and poetic grace to enter the over-worked world of sex-fiction...This is not a pleasant story."

Reviewer: Willa Cather

"A Creole Bovery is this little novel of Miss Chopin's."
