The Complete Works of Kate Chopin

The Complete Works of Kate Chopin

Paperback(New Edition)



In 1969, Per Seyersted gave the world the first collected works of Kate Chopin. Seyersted’s presentation of Chopin’s writings and biographical and bibliographical information led to the rediscovery and celebration of this turn-of-the-century author. Newsweek hailed the two-volume opus—“In story after story and in all her novels, Kate Chopin’s oracular feminism and prophetic psychology almost outweigh her estimable literary talents. Her revival is both interesting and timely.” Now for the first time, Seyersted’s Complete Works is available in a single-volume paperback. It is the first and only paperback edition of Chopin’s total oeuvre. Containing twenty poems, ninety-six stories, two novels, and thirteen essays—in short, everything Chopin wrote except several additional poems and three unfinished children’s stories—as well as Seyersted’s original revelatory introduction and Edmund Wilson’s foreword, this anthology is both a historical and a literary achievement. It is ideal for anyone who wishes to explore the pleasures of reading this highly acclaimed author.
