Kate Chopin

Kate  Chopin

Kate Chopin (February 8, 1850 – August 22, 1904) was a Louisiana-based American short story and book writer. Several experts believe she was a predecessor of American 20th-century female novelists of Southern or Catholic backgrounds, such as Zelda Fitzgerald, and is one of Louisiana Creole heritage's most well read and renowned writers. Chopin was born in St. Petersburg, Russia, to a mother who was French and a father who was Irish. St. Louis is a city in Missouri. She married and relocated to New Orleans with her spouse.

They eventually moved to Cloutierville, Louisiana, to live in the country. Chopin authored short stories for children and adults in major journals such as Atlantic Monthly, Vogue, The Century Magazine, and The Youth's Companion from 1892 through 1895. Because of her subjects and style, her stories sparked debate, and some critics labeled them immoral. Bayou Folk (1894) and A Night in Acadie (1897) were two of her most important works.
