Research Paper on the Story of an Hour" By Kate Chopin
The story of an hour is a short story written by Kate Chopin in the year 1894. Kate
Chopin was born to a Creole-Irish family as Katherine O’Flaherty. She was raised by her mother,
grandmother, and great-grandmother following the death of her father when she was just four.
She received the formal education. Kate Chopin was married to Oscar Chopin in 1870, a
Louisiana business guru, with whom she bore six children. The couple lived in Natchitoches and
New Orleans before the death of her husband, Chopin, in 1884. At these places, she became
engrossed in making observations about the Creole and Cajun life. Kate later relocated to her
birthplace, St. Louis, after her husband’s death, where she began her literary career. Kate Chopin
was born in the year 1850 and later died at the age of 54 years in 1904.
Some of her works include a collection of stories, that is, Bayou Folk launched in 1894

sister, Josephine, and her husband’s friend, Richard. It is based on the varying emotions and

railroad accident disaster that killed several other people. His name is at the top of the list of
casualties who perished in the railroad disaster.
Richard was the first recipient of the news reporting the death of Brently Mallard in the
railroad disaster. He had first-hand information concerning the same. He had been at the
newspaper office when the report about the r...
