This is story which dates back to the nineteenth century when women in American began to realize their freedom and selfhood (Chopin pg.377). Mrs. Mallard who is the main character in the story suffers a lot from her weak that her husband wasn’t dead and that leads to heart attack probably due to the fact that her attempt to kill the husband had been futile. This story shows is a clear reflection of what happens currently in the society whereby evil has entered in marriages to destroy families and that killing is no longer perceived as something unusual as it happens in daily basis. It also gives the moral lesson that true friends can prevent evil planned by the enemy because in this case it’s the relationship of Richard and Brantley which made the plan to have Louise husband lose life.
