Chopin constructs her characters with élan whether it's the highly complicated and layered personality of Edna, the charming Robert Lebrun or the sexually charged Alcee Arobin. The plot thickens as Edna decides to let go of her mundane routine to find her own identity. She puts her marriage at stake to live her dream of an independent life. Yet, Chopin pulls away ever so slowly at the strings that hold the fragile balance in Edna's life leading to a climax that will leave the reader introspecting long after the book is finished.
The Awakening is hailed as a masterpiece on emancipation of women. Chopin skilfully draws out deep rooted human instincts and creates moments of suspended animation that will leave the reader rapt in anticipation of what is coming next. Using a formal tone, Chopin tells the tale of a woman who can be considered the epitome of freedom or seen in demeaning light depending on the reader's interpretation.
