The Story of an Hour In my opinion, Mrs. Mallard’s sorrow at the news of her husband’s death is not merely feigned; it is rather a change of emotion within her.

She accepts the significance of her husband’s death at once without any hesitation or disbelief. She cries in her sister’s arms with wild abandonment. She is grieved and shocked by the fatal death of her husband and cries out in sorrow. Interestingly, her reaction changes from sadness to a sudden rush of emotions while she is retreating in her room. When she is in her room alone, there is a lot of mixed emotion going through her mind and soul.
