compare the character of miss meadows with that of mrs mallard in the story of an hour

1 Answer

  1. Mrs Mallard, the protagonist of Kate Chopin’s short story, “The Story of an Hour”, differs from Miss Meadows on a number of aspects. Unlike Miss Meadows’s effort and tension to finally fit in the society, Mrs Mallard doesn’t care as what the society thinks. Louise Mallard values her freedom and her independent will over marriage and society. Whereas Miss Meadows seems to be marrying Basil, perhaps not out of love, but to finally remove the tag of a spinster at an age of thirty-years. Miss Meadows undergoes an emotional turmoil when she reads that Basil wants to call off their marriage whereas Louise feels free and grateful just within an hour of receiving the news of her husband’s death. Louise looks forward to living life alone and for herself but over here, Miss Meadows looks ahead to finally stop living life all by herself.
