Story of an Hour

After reading the “Story of an Hour”, by Kate Chopin, I think Mrs. Mallard freedom and death was symbolic. I believe that Mrs. Mallard rarely had any freedom in her life since her marriage, and to to find out that she was free for a while only to be denied of her freedom once again, was simply too much for her. Her situation represented women of older times who had restricted freedom, while their husbands can do whatever they want, which is completely unfair. Mrs. Mallard’s happiness and joy should not have been taken away like this and that is what made this story stand out to me.
