KATE CHOPIN “THE STORM”

Ok to single space please. Thanks!
Prompt (What are you writing about?): How does Setting affect/contribute to the plot of your chosen story?
Note: Remember that Setting is not only the place in which a story occurs. It is also mood, weather, time, and atmosphere. These things drive other parts of the story.
How to get started: Choose a story from this unit and discern all the elements of the Setting. Decide in what three ways the setting contributes to the plot of your chosen story. Formulate a thesis about setting and these three areas.
Mini lesson on thesis statements:
If you were writing about Star Wars , a sample thesis might read:
The setting in the Star Wars movies contributes to the desperateness of the Resistance forces, provides a vast space for action and conflicts to occur, focuses on how advances will affect society.
Broken down, this thesis would read: The Setting in the Star Wars movies: a. contributes to the desperateness of the Resistance forces (write a supporting section with text examples) b. provides a vast space for action and conflicts to occur, focuses on how advances will affect society (write a supporting section with text examples) c. focuses on how advances will affect society (write a supporting section with text examples)
Ask yourself, what is the setting of my story and how does it affect the plot in the story? For example, it is apparent that in Londons To Build a Fire, you would devote a supporting section to how the weather conditions drive both the conflict and the characters actions. After you have made connections to the three areas that setting affects, then form your thesis. Here is a template for your thesis:
The Setting in authors name and title of the story, contributes to first way in which the setting affects the story, second way in which setting affects the story, third way in which setting affects the story.

KATE CHOPIN (18511904) (picture and biography on p. 127) wrote in a style that was realistic yet infused with a dense, sensual texture that was perhaps, in part, her artistic response to her memories of the exotic Louisiana bayou country. Like her contemporary Gustave Flaubert (Chopins short novel The Awakening has often been called a Creole Bovary), Chopin used the physical worldas in the charged atmosphere of The Stormto symbolize the inner truths of her characters minds and hearts. Unlike Flaubert, however, she depicted sex not as a frantic and destructive force but as a joyous, elemental part of life. Apparently, Kate Chopin knew how
daring The Storm was: she never submitted it for publication.
