The Story of an Hour
“The Story of an Hour,” written by Kate Chopin, was ahead of its time. The story captures the puzzling response of a woman who learns that her husband is dead. The story contains wonderful imagery and a surprising conclusion. It would suit a lesson on the elements of plot and the plot reversal. It could also accompany a lesson on building and defending literary interpretations.
