March 9, 2019: "Regret" by Kate Chopin


Recommended Posts

Please join us for our next chat in  #readers_corner at 8:30 P.M. (EST) March 9, 2019 -- 01:30  A.M. (GMT) March 9th -- for a discussion of "Regret " by Kate Chopin.

Kate Chopin lived in, and wrote about, late 19th century Louisianna.  Many of her short stories concerned life on the bayous of "Cajun" country and with the remnants of post civil war plantations.  Her stories always are realistic and usually deal with emotional situations in a very tasteful manner.  

We have discussed three of Chopin's stories in the past, most recently back in 2012.  Like those stories, "Regret" deals with life in late 19th century Lousianna.  It describes the stressful situation faced by an aging spinster when faced with the necessity of caring for the four young children of a neighbor forced to leave them during an extended absence.  I think you will enjoy reading the story and I know we will have lots of fun discussing it.
