    The Forbidden Joy of Independence In the short story of Kate Chopin “The Story of an Hour” she shares a story about a woman named Mrs. Mallard with heart trouble who finds out her husband has been involved in an accident and died.

The author shows the process of her disbelief turning into actual relief by describing the scenery outside of her home. The author uses imagery, symbolism and irony to develop the theme of the forbidden joy of independence throughout the story. With this in mind, the author’s use of imagery throughout the story was substantial in showing how the woman was imagining her life ahead of her. She began by describing “the new spring life” and “the delicious breath of rain” that shows how beautiful it is outside and that there is more to come (476). “There was something coming to her.. she felt it.. reaching towards her.. she was beginning to recognize this thing that was approaching her to possess her, and she was striving to beat it back with her will” (476-77). [Make sure you integrate your quotes into your writing.] This “thing” that was coming is the freedom that woman back then aimed for and wanted to obtain, she did not want to feel happy that her husband has passed away but could not resist the relief of the new opportunities she had. She felt the thirst of wanting freedom…

    Although a lot of stories may differ in a lot of ways, the key components always stay the same. A writer must have a good set of characters, a good plot, a good theme, and all the things of that nature. Every person may have a different idea of what makes a particular story “interesting” to them, and keeps them wanting to go back and read the story more and more. For a person like me, I would have to say that the theme of the story can really keep interest. A theme that can truly resonate beyond…

    First, a confession: Prior to taking this class, I was not attentive with understanding the requirements, so I will not pretend otherwise. As a student who didn’t enroll in college until my mid-thirties for reasons besides desire or ability to learn, most classes I’ve taken thus far have been very interesting to me. This one I must say, had me challenged, but not in a way I enjoy. Within my professional development, I have worked in operations and logistics for nearly two decades, but lack…

    Oblivion isn’t what scares me; it’s not the loss of my own life in which I fear it’s the loss of the lives around me. Even more than that I fear people dying before I get to tell them how much I love them. Death has always been a very emotional and personal experience for me. As a curious soul with stubborn ways death has always been hard for me to grasp and accept. I have such an overwhelming amount of compassion that it’s hard for me to cope with death. I’ve always been sensitive to death…
