...Story of an Hour” is a twisted love story with one woman finding the silver linings to the death of her husband. Mrs. Mallard grieves for her husband, but then feels hopeful at the thought of finally having a life that she can control. As she accepts her feelings of freedom and hope, she becomes used to them, already longing for the days that she can dedicate to herself. Unfortunately, when she learns that her husband is alive, she dies, not from joy, but from disappointment, surrendering to the permanent freedom of death. Works Cited Chopin, Kate.
