The Awakening and Selected Stories of Kate Chopin (Enriched Classics) Kindle Edition

Preloaded Digital Audio Player, Unabridged
When The Awakening was first published in 1899, critical outcry proved so vociferous that the novel was banned for decades. Now praised as a classic of early feminist literature, Kate Chopin’s final work rejects conventional female roles and celebrates a woman’s journey towards self-awareness. As the heroine, Edna Pontellier, awakens to her own desires, she begins to question her ideas about marriage, motherhood, society, art, and the nature of love itself. A milestone in American fiction, The Awakening is an unforgettably poignant novel of self-discovery that has inspired generations of readers.

From the Inside Flap
The book was influenced by French writers ranging from Flaubert to Maupassant, and can be seen as a precursor of the impressionistic, mood-driven novels of Virginia Woolf and Djuna Barnes. Variously called "vulgar," "unhealthily introspective," and "morbid," the book was neglected for several decades, not least because it was written by a "regional" woman writer. This edition also includes selected stories from Kate Chopin's Bayou Folk&l --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

Story itself though is excellent and worth a read.
“Una stella solo perché non posso non darne nessuna. Il testo nella versione che ho comprato non era il testo originale, ma qualcosa che sembrava essere stato messo attraverso la traduzione automatica: ad esempio "He should speak a touch Spanish, and additionally a language which no person understood, except it became the mocking-chicken that hung on the alternative aspect of the door, whistling his fluty notes out upon the breeze with maddening endurance" (originale: He could speak a little Spanish, and also a language which nobody understood, unless it was the mocking-bird that hung on the other side of the door, whistling his fluty notes out upon the breeze with maddening persistence.) Il libro non è leggibile e mi fa male aver pagato anche un prezzo minimo per qualcosa che sembra essere liberamente disponibile. Controlla un campione/guarda nel libro prima di acquistare e scegli una versione migliore!”
Quello che viene qui citato è il testo contenuto tra la quarta e la settima riga. Troppo poco e troppo presto per giudicare? Continuate a scandagliare l’estratto, e riga dopo riga troverete altre perle. La più sorprendente è “he now had time to read before quitting New Orleans the day earlier than.” Proprio così: “the day earlier than.” invece di “the day before.”
Amazon mi ha permesso di rendere questo obbrobrio, per il quale non ho voluto sprecare neanche la miseria di 2,99 euro.
If you can't find any other edition for a cost (near INR 150), go for this.
