    “The Storm” written by Kate Chopin is a controversial story about a brief love affair between past lovers, both whom are married to other people. The story’s plot can be overwhelming for sensitive readers as it touches personally on marital affair and sex.

    • 5 Pages

    There are always warning signs when change is coming, but there’s never a way to stop the change. Adrienne Rich explores this idea of knowledge without power in her poem, “Storm Warnings” as the narrator prepares herself and her home to withstand a storm. As I read this poem, I recognized the narrator’s sense of powerlessness but determination to press on in the face of adversity as something I have seen in the eyes of New Orleanians since August 29th, 2005. Our city was destroyed by Hurricane…
