...feminist interpretation of Chopin’s novel may be misguided on the point that she commits suicide because her attempt to live freely has been refused by Robert. But such an interpretation often ignores the fact that a self-committed and self-depended individual does not depend on anyone else’s appraisal. Edna also decides to leave Leonce’s with the pretension that she needs freedom of sexuality and freedom of loving. But at Robert’s refusal, she learns that love is nothing more than an illusion and self-interestedness. Therefore not by Robert’s refusal to acknowledge her freedom, but by her sense of being a betrayer, Edna has been devastated the most. Works Cited Chopin,...
