5.0 out of 5 stars Inspiring and thought-provoking, in a condensed sort of way 7 Sep 2003
By 2nearsighted - Published on
Metzger's analysis and synopsis of THE AWAKENING was carried out so deftly, with such poise, that I began reading the actual novel. Apparently, Kate Chopin's work was a seminal novel in the struggle for women's rights, depicting a woman who decides to drown herself rather than face subordination to a husband, lover, or children. I'm midway through the actual book, and I find that it pales in comparison to the Cliff's Notes. I wish that Mz. Metzger had written the book, and Kate Chopin had written the Cliff's Notes, because Mz. Metzger has a far more pleasant, economical and less turgid writing style. It's hard to get through Kate Chopin's actual book, to be honest, because she pontificates endlessly and tends toward rather unpleasant self-pitying (obviously, since she drowns herself.) I may continue reading the book, but I may stop--since I enjoyed the synopsis so thoroughly, and, thus far, the book is spoiling that.

of course...I bought this book for my son, since he had to read this for school, so my review is not necessarily the best one. He has not started the class yet.
