  • Vanessa de Deus Rocha UFSC


Abstract: This paper is a comparative study between the female characters in The Storm and The Story of an Hour by Kate Chopin, unveiling the female act of resistance on 19th century. Although her books are sometimes considered as shallow because they have female characters basically trying to get married, it is pertinent to look closer to understand what would happen to a woman who did not marry in that period and also to comprehend her writing as a way to say women are not pleased with this life style, however she could not have written such things in a clearer way, otherwise her books would certainly not be published at all. The narratives subscribe very independent women able to survive without the support of any male figure.

Keywords: Female resistance, comparative literature, Kate Chopin.
