Begin by reading the story “The Story of an Hour” by Kate Chopin.
Answer the following question in complete and well thought out paragraphs of 7-10 sentences each. Please number the questions. Do not rewrite the questions. Failure to follow directions will result in a deduction of points.
1.Why does Mrs. Mallard really die? Explain your answer.
2.Do you think if Josephine and Richards hadn’t been so careful in how they told Mrs. Mallard her husband had died that Mrs. Mallard would have died of shock at the beginning of the story? Explain your answer.
3.We never hear Mr. Mallard speak during the story. What do you think the significance of that is? Explain your answer.
4.What kinds of freedoms do each of the characters in the story have? In what ways are they confined or limited? Explain your answer.
5.What should we make of the fact that Mrs. Mallard locks herself up – purposefully confines herself? Why is it only when she’s confined to a room, but liberated from a marriage, that she discovers herself to be free? Explain your answer.
6.What do you think of Chopin’s strategy of placing the entire story’s action within a single house? Explain your answer.
7.Besides the idea of an hour passing, what other references to time can you find in the story? How are those significant? Explain your answer.
8.Do you believe Chopin is trying to make some grand assertion about fate or free will with the ending of the story? If so, what is it? Explain your answer.
9.How can we connect the idea of a short period of time to the story’s main subject, death? What do you think Chopin might be trying to say about the importance of time in one’s life by setting the story in such a limited timeframe? Explain your answer.
