Feminism is the idea that men and women are equal. (Merriam-webster.com, 2017) Two feminist writers of the late 19th century are Kate Chopin and Charlotte Perkins Gilman.

Kate Chopin, in her work entitled The Story of An Hour, uses metaphors and freedom to reveal her belief that women are oppressed while Gilman, having the same view, uses symbols and verbal irony.
She is a wealthy spinster,who lives with estella, while she herself is described as looking like "the witch of the place". Miss Havisham is a contradictory character in literature and in the context of her time. Unlike most unmarried women of the era, her wealth gives her tremendous power, which she uses to coax others to do her bidding and to advance her aims, yet she allows her disappointment at being stood up at the altar to ruin her life.

Universidad de Costa Rica Carlos Contreras Flores B01884 Literary Criticism The Story of an Hour Divided in Two Millenniums Throughout human history, literature has giving people an insight of what the role of women were in different time periods. In most scenarios, literature has served to establish or spot the role of women as secondary, where they were mere subjects or objects of chauvinism. Although the role changes from time to time, it has one particular characteristic, which is the restraining of their liberty or right to choose.

KATE CHOPIN’S “THE STORM” RESEARCH PAPER I believe that most talented authors and artist use their life experiences to contribute to their work or projects. In the case of Kate Chopin I found it interesting that she used her past experience of an affair with Albert to ignite the story “The Storm.” Kate Chopin linked the use of names and setting with the stories she wrote based on her actual life experiences. Kate Chopin uses devices such as irony and symbolism, as well as her feminist mindset to project her ideas to the readers in the story “The Storm.” Kate Chopin was born in St. Louis, Missouri on February 8, 1850. She was the second child of Thomas O’Flaherty and Kate’s mother’s name was Eliza Faris. At the age of 5 years old Kate’s family suffered a tragic loss with her father Thomas passing away in a railroad accident.

She prolifically produced eight volumes of poems: To Bedlam and Part Way Back (1960), All My Pretty Ones (1962), Live or Die (1966). In 1969, she wrote a play entitled Mercy Street,

I looked at my grandmother, she was so lost in a sea of thoughts that she did not notice. My grandmother was popularly known as gogo Nasibeko, she was very old, perhaps the oldest woman in the village. She had taken care of me since I lost my parents to a fire accident that claimed their lives; I survived that night because I slept in my grandmother’s house. Is anybody there? I turned around to see who it was.
