“The Portrait of Women Characters in The Major Short Stories of Kate Chopin and Flannery O’Connor” centers on how women writers portray women’s experience via literary production.
Kate Chopin’s “The Story of an Hour” and “Athénaïse” and Flannery O’Connor’s “Good Country People” and “A Stroke of Good Fortune” are a study case of this portrayal.
Relying on the approach of Images of women, I tended to exhibit how Chopin and O’Connor display their female protagonists’ (Mrs.
Mallard, Athénaïse, in “The Story of an Hour” and “Athénaïse” and Hulga, and Ruby Hill, in “Good Country People” and “A Stroke of Good Fortune”) experience in their social milieu during the twentieth century.
At the beginning of the aforementioned short stories the women writers limn the female protagonists as alive entities as they appear to be active, to have dreams and enjoy certain self-expression, self-confidence,and self-reliance.
Hence, by the end of the short stories the writers depict how the social mores and standards hold sway on them to end up as voiceless women with deactivated souls and evaporated dreams.
