how Mrs. Mallard is initially presented to readers
the Mallards’ marriage dynamic. Is there textual evidence that the Mallards’ marriage had some element of love/affection within it and that Mrs. Mallard grieves when she learns of her loss? In other words, although it is clear that Mrs. Mallard is silently repressed, is there some evidence that there was fondness?
Symbolism? the roomy armchair, the open window, the open square, the description of the springtime scene.
Mrs. Mallard experiences a dramatic epiphany while in her bedroom. Why is her behavior/thoughts in direct conflict with historical context of the late 19th century?
What is your interpretation of the verbal ironic ending? Did Mrs. Mallard really die of “the joy that kills” (the joy of seeing her husband alive) or was it for another reason entirely? What message or themes might Chopin have wanted to get across to readers?
