故事开始于19世纪末的格兰德岛,女主人公爱德娜在反叛中,感到了自由和快乐。她一方面渴望罗伯特的爱,另外一方面继续放纵着自己的性欲。难忘旧情的罗伯特回到了新奥尔良,第一次向爱德娜坦言对她的爱,这让爱德娜重新点燃了对他的爱。但是最后她发现她的丈夫不能理解她,就连罗伯特也不能,她成了孩子的囚徒。她回到格兰德岛,这个让她最初觉醒的地方她选择了自杀,在大海温柔的拥抱中,她得到了解脱,永远地逃离了孤独。

The Wakening begins at Grade Isle, a vacation spot of wealthy Creoles from New Orleans. Edna is there with her two sons and her husband Leonce who comes and goes because of business. Edna has never felt like she fits in with their lifestyle. Edna has always done what is expected of a woman, including marrying a man she did not love. He regards her as a possession rather than an individual. While on vacation, Edna falls in love with Robert Lebrun. She often goes to the beach with him. She begins to realize for the first time, at age 28, that she Edna is so distressed that she returns to Grand Isle where she goes swimming in the cold sea. Purposely she swims out too far and drowns herself.

《觉醒》讲述了一位已婚的、已有两个儿子的年轻女子爱德娜与婚外的单身青年罗伯特相爱的故事。爱德娜走出了家庭,离开了丈夫孩子,自己靠绘画独立为生,但是罗伯特却不敢面对社会的压力。最后,爱德娜将自己裸身投进了波光粼粼的大海,再也没有游回来……

The Wakening tells the story of one woman's emotional journey from a stifled, miserable marriage to a spirited and lusty freedom. Young Edna Pontellier feels trapped in a loveless, although pampered, life with husband, Leonce. Stirrings of independence begin one summer while resorting in Grand Isle, an island off the coast of Louisiana. These new feelings have begun a profound change in Edna, liberating her beyond belief. An infidelity thus ensues, although at the expense of her marriage and motherhood. But the end is not as happy.

 凯特·肖邦 (1851—1904),美国短篇小说家。现在被多数人视作20世纪女性主义作家的先驱。著有两本短篇小说集《支流人》(1894)和《阿卡迪一夜》(1897),作品中背景多为路易斯安那中北部的纳基托什。肖邦被视作是她那个年代的代表作家。

Kate Chopin (February 8, 1851—August 22, 1904), was an American author of short stories and novels. She is now considered by some to have been a forerunner of feminist authors of the 20th century. Her major works were two short story collections, Bayou Folk (1894) and A Night in Acadie (1897). The people in her stories are usually inhabitants of Louisiana. Many of her works are set in Natchitoches in north central Louisiana. Within a decade of her death, Chopin was widely recognized as one of the leading writers of her time.

大海的浪声是极具诱惑力的:有时私语,有时喧哗,有时低吟,永无休止,引诱人的心灵徘徊于寂寞的深渊中,消失在内心冥想的迷惘中。

The voice of the sea is seductive; never ceasing, whispering, clamoring, murmuring, inviting the soul to wander for a spell in abysses of solitude; to lose itself in mazes of inward contemplation.

作者以主人公的自我意识和性意识的觉醒为主线,深刻探索了已婚女性的内心。这在当时的社会背景下确实是一个大胆之举。《觉醒》被视作美国女性文学早期代表作,是女性文学的经典之作。

Interesting and Timely … Chopin's oracular feminism and prophetic psychology almost outweigh her estimable literary talents. —Newsweek
