Sarmiento Guido R. Sarmiento Jr.A.TurturiciEnglish 101 - 91039December 4, 2017The Story of an Hour"The Story of an Hour" is a great example of an unheard point of view on marriage which is written by Kate Chopin. The main character, Mrs. Mallard, feels nervous about having a freedom after being informed about his husband's death but real facts, which reveal an accident as a lie, kill her. Published in the late eighteen hundred, this story represents a reflection on the state of marriage of that era.Beginning with the speaker and POV, Kate Chopin starts her story through narrator voice not using the first person. However, the narrator is not the only observer – she/she knows everything about Mrs. Mallard. For example, she writes about the fact that the main hero does not love her husband by the words, "And yet she had loved him—sometimes. Oftenshe had not." Furthermore, she does not represent certain concrete words about initial feelings, yet it is still comprehensive without saying a word.
