What was Kate Chopin's The Story of An Hour about?

Mrs. Mallard, a woman with heart trouble, is informed that her husband has been killed in a railroad disaster. She "wept at once" and went to her room where she could be alone. As she sat in her room alone she realized she was free. Sure, she'd be sad when she saw them bury her husband, but she was free to do with her life what she wanted to do with her life. She wasn't madly in love with her husband-- in fact, often times she felt she didn't even love him at all-- so the more she thought about being free (free in body & soul) the more excited she became. In fact, she felt like she was "drinking an elixir of life" and finally came out of her room feeling like a "goddess of Victory." As she and her sister went downstairs they heard someone opening the front door-- it was her husband, who had been far from the accident and didn't even know there had been one. Mrs. Mallard died. The doctors declared she'd died of heart disease-- "of the joy that kills." (Nothing like some irony for you...)

Who are the characters in 'The Storm' by Kate Chopin?

Kate Chopin's short story "The Storm" has six characters. They are, in order of appearance, Bibi, Bobinôt, Sylvie, Calixta, Alcée, and Clarisse.

Bibi is the four-year-old son of Bobinôt and Calixta. At the beginning of the story, he is concerned about the well being of his mother when he and his father are at Friedheimer's store and he notices that a storm is coming.

Bobinôt is Calixta's husband and Bibi's father. He loves his wife, as demonstrated by the fact that he buys her the shrimps that she is very fond of while he and his son wait out the storm in Friedheimer's store.

Sylvie is a helper or servant of Calixta. Sylvie helped Calixta the day before, so she will not be with Calixta when the storm comes.

Calixta is the wife of Bobinôt and mother of Bibi. She is home alone when the storm rolls in until Alcée shows up at her house, looking for shelter. Calixta has not seen Alcée very much since she married her husband five years ago. This is the first time they've been alone together since that time.

Alcée Laballière had been a previous lover of Calixta. As they wait out the storm together, the two of them reminiscence of their courtship and make very passionate love to one another. He leaves after the storm ends.

Clarisse is Alcée's wife. When Alcée returns home that night, he writes a loving letter to her telling her not to hurry back from Biloxi if she and the children are happy there. Alcée misses his family but wants what's best for them, even if it means they remain in Biloxi. Clarisse is happy to receive the letter, and she decides that it is rather agreeable to remain in Biloxi for a while longer.
