107 Words1 Page
Kate Chopin wrote about subjects that took place during her lifetime. Many of them still are a part of United States today.

Desiree turns her social isolation from an emotional state to a physical one as she goes and disappears into the fields. When we allow our prejudices to rule us, we end up destroying ourselves.
