One of her better-known works is The Awakening, in which “The Story of an Hour” appears. Kate Chopin is considered a fore-runner of feminism in literature. “The Story of an Hour” by Kate Chopin utilizes a type of POV called limited omnipresent, which limits our understanding of a person’s thoughts and actions to only one major character, in this case, Louise Mallard, a woman who is shocked by news of the sudden death of her husband.
