    I read The Awakening in HS many years ago so I decided to read another book by Chopin This short story, The Kiss, by Chopin was published in 1894 and later in Vogue in 1895 Clearly Vogue, like Chopin, was interested in representing women as sexual beings, writes Bonnie James Shaker Chopin hadlearned that Vogue was the showcase in which she could count on placing her experimental feminist fiction Between 1892 and 1895 Vogue was either Chopin s first or second choice periodi I read The Awakening in HS many years ago so I decided to read another book by Chopin This short story, The Kiss, by Chopin was published in 1894 and later in Vogue in 1895 Clearly Vogue, like Chopin, was interested in representing women as sexual beings, writes Bonnie James Shaker Chopin hadlearned that Vogue was the showcase in which she could count on placing her experimental feminist fiction Between 1892 and 1895 Vogue was either Chopin s first or second choice periodical for publishing much of her fiction, indicating the author was both tracking and targeting the markets in which she would be most successful The Kiss takes place in the home of Nathalie, and her brother, at unspecified place, and at the location of Brantain and Nathalie s wedding Nathalie is ruthless, like Lily Bart in Wharton s novel The House of Mirth. The story is about Natalie, a young, beautiful woman who finds a man of high status in society with enormous wealth, which she very muchliked and required the entourage which his wealth could give herBrantain finds Nathalie cheating with another man, whom she hademotion and affection for one might say he was her true love Brantain s forgiving nature prevented him from foreseeing her deception, and they end up getting married, despite her secret affair with the other man Nathalie understands that she cannotcombine independence and sensual satisfactionThe story underscores a subtle ambivalence about female roles, as well as touches of wry humor Her characters are either sometimes disillusioned or else they see all too clearly the blindnesses of others and connive around them This was how Chopin continued to shape her work Her last sentence ends with a moral message,A person can t have everything in this world and it was a little unreasonable of her to expect it

    Good quick read Well written, surprising stories Very modern 4 5 stars because unfortunately the last story couldn t keep me awake Luckily the other stories made up for it I am keeping my eyes open forby Kate s hand I like her style, both form and content There s something about the atmosphere that she creates, the ability to even surprise you with a little plot twist in a short story of less than ten pages long, that I feel suits my needs as a reader.

    A sweet collection of bite sized Gothica that you can fit in your pocket There s something very charming about Chopin s macabre twists, and the underlying morality that she offers is often startlingly modern There are some great examples here of how to weave story together with subtle ideology in a very short space of time, which make The Kiss a useful study for aspiring short fiction writers.

    I love Kate Chopin s short stories, surprisinglythan The Awakening Each story is so different, it s difficult to review all of them here But they all are detailed and compelling I don t agree with everything the main characters do, but I love how raw and real the writing is.
