The novel is set at the coast of Southern Louisiana in New Orleans and revolves around a woman, Edna Pontellier, who does not want to bear the responsibility of a wife and mother as the society dictated in the 19th century (Chopin 3–8).

Indeed, it was fundamental in initiating early feminism, thus generating mixed reactions from the society.
