The Awakening - Kate Chopin This book was required reading in my Freshman English course in college. From what I can recall of it, I was deeply touched by Edna Pontellier's situation, her striving to find and establish her true self. She had sacrificed so much for her husband and family. (As I read on, the more I felt sorry for Edna, because she became an unfulfilled and unhappy woman.)

Considering that this book was published in 1899 makes it all the more remarkable.
