Free ebook: ‘A Morning Walk’ by Kate Chopin

Dear friends and followers of the Grammaticus blog,

I am happy to share with you the second title in the series of ebooks primarily designed for English language learners. After the successful launch of Hugh Walpole’s short story The Snow, this time you can enjoy a lovely piece of 19th century writing by the inimitable American author of Louisiana Creole background, Kate Chopin.

Kate Chopin (1850–1904)

Perfect for the arrival of spring, A Morning Walk was originally published as An Easter Day Conversion in the St Louis periodical Criterion in April of 1897. It’s a short and curious tale of a man in his forties who experiences a kind of reawakening during one of his morning walks.

At first glance, this is a story of religious conversion, but other things are always lurking in Chopin’s writing. Rich in symbolism, there are hints of not only spiritual but also bodily reawakening as the cerebral and introverted Archibald notices the beauty of springtime flowers—and that of a local girl.

The ebook contains notes explaining more advanced vocabulary.
