The feeling that has been given to the reader is that she is honest, realistic and she is just expressing her feelings about marriage. The story made me excited. I wondered that what will happen in the end ? So this is great story. In my opinion ,the author shows us her personality in her story. It means feminism. I was shocked by the ending and disappointed with her view of marriage. And I think that there are many signs of life in the story that represent a re-birth of this young woman. This story makes feel us different emotions. And still I think why Richard was in there? He is really unnecessary. As far as Im concerned, author was giving wrong impression of marriage being a negative thing rather than being positive. In fact it shows us different perspective. Many people can think that marriage is not always what it seems to look like. The other is marriage can also contain it’s own kind of freedom, but not a limitation of it. So this is the most amazing and emotionally charged story that I’ve ever read. Because it gives us different ideas about marriage. I don’t know any experience similar to this story. But now I have many ideas about it. I can read over and over. I can not wearisome. Because the story is very effective. This is my first time to love any story. Actually I dont like stories. They are boring for me. But in this time it couldn’t be like that. I can advice The Story of An Hour for reading. And I’m sure that most of people can like it. Because marriage is everywhere in our life. Everybody can find something from their life. Such as suffering, happiness, death, life, marriage, sadness. I searched the author. And I found something like she is a feminist. I realized that Mrs.Mallard is like the author. Protogonist reflects Kate Chopin. Maybe because of it, story is attractive. Everything is a realistic in this story and The Story of An Hour reflects the real life. In fact, I loved everything in this story except for Richard. He is the first person to hear of Brently's death. But one of the others could be the first person to hear of death. Such as Mrs.Mallards’ sister. Because she is also important character. She is protogonist’s sister. She could be. Anyway. Briefly I loved the story. But I can not say the same thing as author.
