Bayou folk by Kate Chopin( Book )
47 editions published between 1894 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,190 libraries worldwide
Best known for her novel The awakening, Kate Chopin (1851-1904) established her literary reputation with short stories about life in rural Louisiana during the late nineteenth century. After her 1870 marriage to Oscar Chopin, a Creole cotton trader and commission merchant, she lived in and around New Orleans for more than a decade until her husband's death in 1882. During these years, Chopin became acquainted with Creoles, Cajuns, and newly freed blacks. When Oscar Chopin died he was nearly bankrupt, forcing Kate and their six children to return to her family in St. Louis. Still under the spell of New Orleans, Chopin began writing and her short stories about Creole and Cajun life first appeared in magazines in 1889. The stories collected in Bayou folk (1894) present remarkably vivid snapshots of daily life in a now vanished world. Many of them highlight the relations between blacks and whites in a society where the rules of engagement still reflected the entrenched patterns of slavery some two decades after the Civil War

Bayou folk ; and, A night in Acadie by Kate Chopin( Book )
8 editions published between 1999 and 2014 in English and held by 351 libraries worldwide
In the decade prior to the publication of her landmark novel, The Awakening (1899), Kate Chopin wrote about ninety short stories. She gathered twenty-three of them in a collection entitled Bayou Folk in 1894, and followed that three years later with a collection of twenty-one more in A Night in Acadie. Together, these nuanced portraits of nineteenth-century inhabitants of New Orleans and Natchitoches Parish exquisitely from a sort of Southern novel of manners. Chopin was deeply influenced by the work of French and American realists. Many of the stories in Bayou Folk concern young people seeking good marriage partners and better lives for themselves. Expanding this theme into a search for balance and harmony, personal fulfillment, and cultural richness, A Night in Acadie is, Bernard Koloski notes in his Introduction, "one of America's best nineteenth-century collections of short stories -- and one of the most compassionate views of life in American realistic fiction". With a gentle, knowing gaze, Chopin evoked the distant world of Louisiana plantations and 'Cadian balls, and anticipated the thoroughly modern multi-ethnic, gender-sensitive, and sexually charged world of our century
The Awakening and Selected Short Fiction by Kate Chopin( Book )
5 editions published between 2003 and 2005 in English and held by 330 libraries worldwide
"When it first appeared in 1899, Kate Chopin's The Awakening was greeted with cries of outrage. The novel's frank portrayal of a woman's emotional, intellectual, and sexual awakening shocked the sensibilities of the time and destroyed the author's reputation and career. Many years passed before this short, pioneering work was recognized as a major achievement in American literature. Set in and around New Orleans, The Awakening tells the story of Edna Pontellier, a young wife and mother who, determined to control her own life, flouts convention by moving out of her husband's house, having an adulterous affair, and becoming an artist. Beautifully written, with sensuous imagery and vivid local descriptions, The Awakening has lost none of its power to provoke and inspire. Additionally, this edition includes thirteen of Kate Chopin's magnificent short stories."--Back cover

Kate Chopin's private papers by Kate Chopin( Book )
6 editions published in 1998 in English and Undetermined and held by 12 libraries worldwide
"Kate Chopin, according to her contemporaries, was a "woman of mysterious fascination"--And Kate Chopin's Private Papers reveals many of the author's secrets. Chopin (1850-1904), author of about a hundred short stories and two novels (The Awakening and At Fault), also kept diaries, wrote letters and poems, translated short stories and articles from the French, and worried about her career. Chopin's newly discovered manuscripts, published for the first time here, reflect her dedication to revision and improving her craft; her manuscript account books show her meticulous control of her career and her pursuit of audiences. These papers illuminate the growth of Chopin as a writer, bring into focus the reactions of critics to her work, and settle a number of controversies in Chopin studies."--Jacket
