This essay examines how four women in Kate Chopin’s The Awakening contribute to telling the story about the main character Edna’s development as a woman in the late nineteenth century. The four female characters analysed in this essay are Adèle Ratignolle, Mademoiselle Reisz, Madame Lebrun and Madame Antoine. This essay will show that all four of these women contribute to telling the story about Edna’s personal development even though some of their qualities are hidden to Edna but it is also the actions of some of the characters which contribute to Edna’s suicide.
