The novel's frank portrayal of a woman's emotional, intellectual, and sexual awakening shocked the sensibilities of the time and destroyed the author's reputation and career. Many years passed before this short, pioneering work was recognized as a major achievement in American literature. &&LBR&&R&&LBR&&RSet in and around New Orleans, &&LI&&RThe Awakening&&L/I&&R tells the story of Edna Pontellier, a young wife and mother who, determined to control her own life, flouts convention by moving out of her husband's house, having an adulterous affair, and becoming an artist.&&LBR&&R&&LBR&&RBeautifully written, with sensuous imagery and vivid local descriptions, &&LI&&RThe Awakening&&L/I&&R has lost none of its power to provoke and inspire.
