The Awakening, originally titled A Solitary Soul, is a novel by Kate Chopin, first published in 1899. Set in New Orleans and on the Louisiana Gulf coast at the end of the 19th century, the plot centers on Edna Pontellier and her struggle between her increasingly unorthodox views on femininity and motherhood with the prevailing social attitudes of the turn-of-the-century American South. It is one of the earliest American novels that focuses on women's issues without condescension. It is also widely seen as a landmark work of early feminism, generating a mixed reaction from contemporary readers and critics. The novel's blend of realistic narrative, incisive social commentary, and psychological complexity makes The Awakening a precursor of American modernist literature; it prefigures the works of American novelists such as William Faulkner and Ernest Hemingway and echoes the works of contemporaries such as Edith Wharton and Henry James. It can also be considered among the first Southern works in a tradition that would culminate with the modern masterpieces of Faulkner, Flannery O'Connor, Eudora Welty, Katherine Anne Porter, and Tennessee Williams.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2005 im Fachbereich Amerikanistik - Literatur, Note: 2,0, Johann Wolfgang Goethe-Universitat Frankfurt am Main (Institut fur England- und Amerikastudien), Veranstaltung: Weibliche Subjektivitat im Roman des 19. Jahrhunderts, 7 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Jahrhunderte lang bekleideten sich die Menschen zum Schutz vor Kalte, Hitze oder ahnlichen Umwelteinflussen. Als man aber nicht mehr langer Barenfelle trug und man mehrere verschiedene Garderoben zum Wechseln besass, bemerkte man recht schnell, dass die Kleidung weitaus mehr zu bieten hatte als den rein funktionalen Schutzaspekt. Man konnte nun auch Gefuhle und innere Stimmungen unausgesprochen ausdrucken und dies ist bis heute so geblieben. Nach wie vor tragt man in unserer Kultur Schwarz bei Trauerfallen, Weiss bei Hochzeiten oder elegante, luxuriose Kleidung zu festlichen Anlassen. Heute ist es jedoch zudem moglich, offen seine Gefuhle zu aussern, ohne dies subtil uber die Kleidung tun zu mussen. Es gibt bei weitem keine so strengen Konventionen mehr wie im 19. Jahrhundert, die die angemessene Kleidung vorschreiben. Im 19. Jahrhundert war es vor allem fur die Frau noch schwierig, ihre Gefuhle und Einstellungen auf direktem Weg zu aussern, sofern sie nicht dem traditionellen Rollenbild entsprachen. Aus diesem Grund musste die Frau eine passende Moglichkeit finden, dies versteckt zu tun. Mit der Wahl der Farbe und der Art ihrer Garderobe konnte die Frau ihrer Umwelt mitteilen, in welcher seelischen Verfassung sie sich befand. Edna Pontellier ist eine dieser Frauen. In Kate Chopins The Awakening findet sich neben verschiedenen anderen Bildern wie die Vogel, das Meer oder die Musik, die Kleidung als eine zentrale Metapher im Verstandnis von Edna Pontelliers Erwachen. Die Kleidung und das Ablegen dergleichen haben einen stark symbolischen Charakter, da mit der Beschreibung von Ednas Kleidung ihre Gefuhle und ihre allmahliche Veranderung auf subtilem Weg uberm

Examensarbeit aus dem Jahr 2001 im Fachbereich Amerikanistik - Literatur, Note: 1,0, Universitat zu Koln, 104 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Funfzig Jahre lang, von der Publikation 1899 bis 1956, ist von The Awakening in Literaturwissenschaft, Literaturgeschichte und Literaturkritik kaum Notiz genommen worden. Eine irrationale Protagonistin, die bis in den Tod auf ihrer Identitat insistiert, dabei scheinbar nicht auf die "menschliche Herde" angewiesen ist und daruber dennoch nicht hysterisch oder psychotisch wird, stand ebenso im Widerspruch zum naturalisierenden viktorianischen Diskurs uber Weiblichkeit, wie die fiktionale Erkundung des Komplexes Kultur, Sexualitat und Tod Illusionen zu demontieren drohte, die als gesellschaftliches Fundament fungierten und bis heute fungieren. Dass diese konterdiskursive Infragestellung kulturerhaltender Ordnungsphantasmen zu einer massiven Verdrangung des Textes - nicht zuletzt unter dem Signum der Kulturversagung - gefuhrt hat, uberrascht kaum. Der Tenor zeitgenossischer Rezensionen bezeugt eine signifikante Ablehnung: " ...] it leaves one sick of human nature" (Awakening: 163), "its disagreeable glimpses of sensuality are repellent" (Awakening: 166), "gilded dirt" (Awakening: 167), "an essentially vulgar story" (Awakening: 168), "unhealthily introspective and morbid in feeling" (Awakening: 170), "unwholesome in its influence" (Awakening: 172). Es handelt sich dabei um viel mehr als nur um "vestiges of Victorian prudery" (Walker 1993: 141). Eine derart vehemente, mehr moralisch als asthetisch begrundete Ablehnung lasst vermuten, dass der Roman an neuralgische Punkte der Kultur wie auch der menschlichen Identitat ruhrt. Es geht um Fragen, die nicht gestellt werden durfen. Dass Nietzsche und Freud sich mit ahnlichen Reaktionen konfrontiert sahen, ist ebenso wenig ein Zufall wie die Tatsache, dass ihre Gedanken sehr produktiv fur die Interpretation des Textes genutzt werden konnen. Welche diskursiven"

It was supposed to be a time for healing. But it soon turned to horror. Paul and Penny Mason are spending the summer at the family lake house with their troubled, teenage daughter, Elsie, in a last-ditch effort to save their crumbling marriage. But the tension between them only thickens when they arrive at their once-idyllic summer home, a place that now feels eerily cold and darkly foreboding. It quickly becomes clear that all is not right. Penny is plagued by horrific, recurring nightmares. Paul and Elsie are surprised by the curious appearance of a sad, strange woman—a woman who purports to know them, but who calls them by names that are not their own. The mystery only deepens when they discover an antique box in the house. Inside is a photo of the woman, alive in a distant past. Who is she? And what is the source of the seeping, chilly discomfort that has suddenly settled over the family? The answer lies within Penny’s disturbing dreams and Elsie’s fragile emotional state—and when long-buried secrets reveal themselves, it will be the most frightening day of their lives. . . .
