Summary When first published in 1899, charges of sordidness and immorality consigned The Awakening into initial obscurity and irreparably damaged its author's literary and social reputation. In her introduction, Sandra M. Gilbert considers the issues explored in the novel and the stories from their growth out of the feminist literary tradition of the nineteenth century to their place among other concerns of fin de sicle writers in America and England
