The blind man’s wife had recently died and that’s why he was coming to visit. The narrator thought it was absurd that he was able to have a wife, he says it “ was beyond my understanding” (11). He even said how he started to feel sorry for the blind man for a minute then he began to think about the predicament the wife was in, and only the narrator thought was a bad situation.

Chopin clearly states that women felt that they lost their freedom and that they were just mere prisoners of marriage. Mrs. Mallard’s tragedy is a good example to understand that women were unhappy and depressed, since society forced them to play a secondary role, where happiness and independence cannot be achieved. Kate Chopin, in reality, lost her husband, and perhaps she wrote ‘The Story of an Hour’ to tell that she could not find freedom with her husband’s death, and that the character’s fate was the only possible way to find it, not only for herself but for most women as
Mallard. The two true themes of this story are loss and irony and Mrs. Mallard embodies both of these. The theme of loss is littered throughout this story; first Mrs. Mallard thinks that she has lost her husband; second she finds out that she has lost her new freedom, and finally Mr. Mallard loses his husband. While many readers may see Mrs. Mallard’s death as the greatest loss, Chopin’s writing suggests that it is instead the loss of new life that Mrs. Mallard has so quickly discovered. She had her entire new life planned out, and it all came crashing down within an hour.
She called me over to her desk, and asked me “What is going on?” I told her quietly, “My father got transferred, so I have to move closer to his work.” I could tell she was absolutely devastated by the look on her face.

They told me how much they were going to miss me as they began to cry. Seeing my two closest friends crying over me broke my heart.

As Julian expected, the boy’s mother grows irate and strikes Julian’s mother in rage. Following this, Julian turns on his distressed mother, ridiculing her actions and justifying those of the young boy’s mother. Eventually, Julian’s mother - who had previous health complications - succumbs to her injuries, thrusting Julian into grief, guilt, and utter hopelessness. O’Connor’s use of rhetorical devices illustrates the conflicting and evolving attitude with which Julian views his mother. O’Connor’s use of imagery captures the disdain with which Julian views his life circumstances, the infatuation Julian has with seeing his mother agitated and remorseful, and the contrasting culpability he feels when his mother reaches her twisted and untimely fate.
