Tina GarrettGreat paper, even though it’s a rough draft. I see just a couple simple errors like spacing . The main thing is to give a more clear thesis, and to fix those citations.

She rejected almost every label attached to her work, pushed the envelope for acceptable material, and has left even modern critics divided over her real beliefs and motives. Her background sheds some light on her literary choices. Her unique upbringing figures heavily in her work, as do her cultural experiences, but they do not fully explain it.

She was raised in a home filled with widowed women; her mother, grandmother and great-grandmother had all lost their husbands and none ever remarried. This is thought to have “prevented her as she matured from experiencing in her own family the traditional submissiveness of women to men” (Skaggs 2). The women were apparently left with adequate financial means, as Chopin is noted as living a comfortable life, and was a debutante prior to her marriage to Oscar Chopin in 1870 (Taylor 141). Chopin moved to New Orleans with her new husband and settled in to a life as wife and
