Kate Chopin’s View on Death and Freedom in The Story of an Hour
The Story of an Hour, written by the American woman writer, Kate Chopin (1851-1904) fully shows us the tremendous conflict between life and death among those women who had the more self-awareness, the less social living space according to the established social norms 100 years ago in a dramatic way. The heroine’s strong desire for freedom and sudden death remind us of the philosophical thought on life and death of Zhuangzi, ancient Chinese thinker and Martin Heideggar, which deconstruct and transcend the conflict between them.
