Chopin, Kate

orig. Katherine O'Flaherty

born Feb. 8, 1851, St. Louis, Mo., U.S.
died Aug. 22, 1904, St. Louis

U.S. writer.

Chopin lived in Louisiana during her marriage and began to write after her husband's death. A local colourist and interpreter of New Orleans culture, she foreshadowed later feminist themes. Among her more than 100 short stories are "Désirée's Baby" and "Madame Celestin's Divorce." The Awakening (1899), a realistic novel about the sexual and artistic awakening of a young mother who abandons her family, initially was condemned for its sexual frankness but was later acclaimed.

▪ American author
née  Katherine O'Flaherty 
born Feb. 8, 1851, St. Louis, Mo., U.S.
died Aug. 22, 1904, St. Louis

      American novelist and short-story writer known as an interpreter of New Orleans culture. There was a revival of interest in Chopin in the late 20th century because her concerns about the freedom of women foreshadowed later feminist literary themes.

      Born to a prominent St. Louis family, Katherine O'Flaherty read widely as a girl. In June 1870 she married Oscar Chopin, with whom she lived in his native New Orleans, Louisiana, and later on a plantation near Cloutiersville, Louisiana, until his death in 1882. After he died she began to write about the Creole and Cajun people she had observed in the South. Her first novel, At Fault (1890), was undistinguished, but she was later acclaimed for her finely crafted short stories, of which she wrote more than 100. Two of these stories, “Désirée's Baby” and “Madame Celestin's Divorce,” continue to be widely anthologized.

      In 1899 Chopin published The Awakening, a realistic novel about the sexual and artistic awakening of a young wife and mother who abandons her family and eventually commits suicide. This work was roundly condemned in its time because of its sexual frankness and its portrayal of an interracial marriage and went out of print for more than 50 years. When it was rediscovered in the 1950s, critics marveled at the beauty of its writing and its modern sensibility.

      Chopin's work has been categorized within the “ local colour” genre. Her stories were collected in Bayou Folk (1894) and A Night in Acadie (1897). The Complete Works of Kate Chopin, edited by Per Seyersted, appeared in 1969.

Additional Reading
Emily Toth, Kate Chopin (1990), focuses on her life. Per Seyersted, Kate Chopin (1969, reprinted 1990); and Barbara C. Ewell, Kate Chopin (1986), are critical biographies. Analyses of her work include Alice Hall Petry (ed.), Critical Essays on Kate Chopin (1996); and Bernard Koloski, Kate Chopin: A Study of the Short Fiction (1996).
