'The Storm'

Kate Chopin's Famous Short Story

"The Storm" was written by Kate Chopin on July 19, 1898. The short story was first published in The Complete Works of Kate Chopin in 1969. With an adulterous one-night stand at the center of the climactic tale, it's probably not surprising that Chopin doesn't appear to have made any effort to publish the story.


The controversial tale is set in the late nineteenth century at Friedheimer's store in Louisiana, and at the nearby house of Calixta and Bobinôt. Study Guide
