Set in New Orleans, the story follows Edna Pontellier and her struggle to reconcile her increasingly unorthodox views on femininity and motherhood. It is one of the earliest American novels that focuses on women’s issues. The novel’s blend of realistic narrative, incisive social commentary, and psychological complexity makes The Awakening a precursor of American modernism.
