Provoking thoughts about many different political and social topics, a Collection of Kate Chopin’s Short Stories brings together an intriguing mix of some of her best works. One of the short stories, “Crossing the Bayou” is about a woman, La Folle, who is scared to cross the boundary from her house to the bayou that she lives by. She grew up in the same place, never crossing the line, until one day Cheri, a little boy she cared for and loved, got shot in a forest near by. La Folle knew the only way she could help him was to bring him to his home, which was across the bayou. La Folle was faced with her biggest fear, and had to decide if she could cross the bayou or not. A Collection of Short Stories by Kate Chopin is a truly interesting book filled with stories of slavery, wealth, greed, and more.
I would recommend this book of short stories to those who enjoyed the short stories during freshman year, such as the “Scarlet Ibis,” “The Flowers,” or “The Lottery.” I enjoyed all the short stories, with the exception of “Ma’ame Pelagie.” I found this French short story confusing due to the complicated names of each character and the book-like format. This story had “chapters” that were each about the same length as some of the other short stories in the collection. I found this to be hard to follow and continue to read. If this format is not hard for you, then I definitely recommend this collection. Kate Chopin is a very talented writer and I believe many people would enjoy her short stories.

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.
