When reading “The Story of an Hour” by Kate Chopin I immediately knew what kind of short story I was getting in to. Kate Chopin is famous for distressed woman getting there way and enjoying deaths of their husbands. In this short story Mrs. Mallard the wife whose husband had past away from a tragic accident. When she got the news about her husband death she was full of tears because like any widow a passing of someone is very sad, but for Mrs. Mallard it only lasted a second because she repeatedly whispered “free, free, free!”. Which only means she was unhappy with her marriage and was manipulated or had no say in anything because at the time it was the late 1800s when woman had no rights.
