CHOICE ReviewIn 1899, southern writer Kate Chopin published the novel The Awakening. Its realistic treatment of sexuality and feminine independence scandalized Victorian society, whose hostile rejection led to Chopin's abandonment of writing. Recently, her works have received critical recognition that has given them literary prominence. A century after the reaction to The Awakening, the volume of Chopin scholarship has grown large enough to justify this annotated bibliography. Green and Caudle, both Chopin scholars, have examined and annotated all types of critical work on Chopin 1976-98, as well as some forthcoming publications. Previous scholarship was collected by Marlene Springer in Edith Wharton and Kate Chopin: A Reference Guide (CH, Dec'76). Preceding the entries are three enlightening essays by well-known scholars. The balance of the work consists of sections of primary texts, biographies, bibliographies, critical books and journal articles, essays in edited volumes, and dissertations. The critical works section is dominant, revealing an abundance of publications in the 1990s. Arrangement is by year, with Library of Congress call numbers and author, title, and subject indexes. Although the compilers missed a few items, they have conducted an exhaustive search of 20 years of Chopin criticism. Recommended for upper-division undergraduates and above. S. R.
