    I reas this book (actually, Kindle collection) after reading "The Awakening" and other short stories of Kate Chopin in another collection. This book has "At Fault", "The Awakening", and a very large number of short stories, maybe even all of Chopin's published short stories. Kate Chopin's "The Awakening" was billed as an early feminist novel, but this aspect is not so apparent in the other stories in this volume. "At Fault" is a charming novelette, about a Creole widow and whether she will remarry. The other stories likewise involve antebellum Louisiana . There are a mix of races: white, black, and Indian; all embedded in the the French-American culture. The stories are almost all short vignettes, often only a few pages long. The characters are nearly all rural and unsophisticated; they are treated with honesty, insight and compassion, albeit often with a touch of condescension. The stories are all rather charming, if a bit dated.

    I have always loved Kate Chopin since reading The Awakening and enjoyed reading more of her stories.
