Read full description of the books:
The story begins with a woman trying to get rid of letters which are the only evidence of her having an affair outside her marriage. She has burned some of the letters but cannot burn the rest because she was overwhelmed with emotions. She then decides to trust her husband with the deed, leaving this message: "I leave this package to the care of my husband. With perfect faith in his loyalty and his love, I ask him to destroy it unopened." When the woman died, the husband threw the letters in the river. He is filled with constant paranoia of the contents of the letters. He is suspecting that his wife had another affair so he searched for evidence in her writing nook and the books she has read.
(view spoiler)[ It ate him up until he went deep into the river to know his wife's secret. But I also think that his paranoia is only a substitute for his mourning. Instead of crying and being sad about it, he just kept himself busy by finding out if she had an affair. And when he went to the river and died, it is his surrender because he cannot handle her absence anymore. He believes that his death will make him join her. (hide spoiler)]
I liked how the characters have no names. It added mystery to the eerie atmosphere.

Read information about the authorKate Chopin was an American novelist and short-story writer best known for her startling 1899 novel, The Awakening. Born in St. Louis, she moved to New Orleans after marrying Oscar Chopin in 1870. Less than a decade later Oscar's cotton business fell on hard times and they moved to his family's plantation in the Natchitoches Parish of northwestern Louisiana. Oscar died in 1882 and Kate was suddenly a young widow with six children. She turned to writing and published her first poem in 1889. The Awakening, considered Chopin's masterpiece, was subject to harsh criticism at the time for its frank approach to sexual themes. It was rediscovered in the 1960s and has since become a standard of American literature, appreciated for its sophistication and artistry. Chopin's short stories of Cajun and Creole life are collected in Bayou Folk (1894) and A Night in Acadie (1897), and include "Desiree's Baby," "The Story of an Hour" and "The Storm."
Some biographers cite 1850 as Chopin's birth year.
