Some of the challenging words used to describe Kate Chopin’s The Story of an Hour by Kate include intense and assertive. The story is intense because it demonstrates how an emotion such as happiness that people fascinate could because someone’s death as depicted by Mrs Mallard's state. The story portrays the feeling of assertiveness following the sensation demonstrated by Chopin when discussing Millard’s reaction to her husband’s death (Chopin, 2014). Chopin was trying to inform people about freedom and what it means for everyone in different stages of their lives. Some people may be oppressed indirectly by giving more time to others and neglecting themselves. If such people leave, the generous giver never knows how and what to do with the freedom.
