Kate Chopin’s The Storm
A discussion of the main theme in Kate Chopin’s `The Storm.`
This paper takes a look at how Kate Chopin develops her theme that sexual desires are inborn and primitive in her story, `The Storm.` by using the storm as a setting and a symbol which show these desires to be as passionate as a summer storm.
`By using the storm as both a setting for the story and as a symbol for human sexuality, Chopin develops this theme by showing a parallel between the successive stages of a thunderstorm and the stages of passion in a human sexual encounter. `The Storm` emphasizes Chopin’s premise that trying to control and regulate human sexuality is like trying to control a storm.`
