Literary Gladiators: Episode 25- "The Awakening" by Kate Chopin

Our 25th episode has finally been uploaded to YouTube! In this particular episode, Jim, Brianna, Charlie, and I discuss and debate one of the most remarkable and controversial works in literature with Kate Chopin's The Awakening. This work proved to be so controversial for its time that it hurt Chopin's career and shunned her from the literary realm. Unfortunately, she did not live much longer nor did she live to see the impact that her literature made on the feminist movement as well as American literature in general.

This is the fourth and final episode of this season that features Brianna in the rotating seat. From those who have responded so far, she has been our most popular guest, which is logical when one puts her multiple contributions that have really kept our discussions flowing. One could even see a moment where she asserts a bold belief about this short novel that you can find out as you watch this episode. We hope to have her back when we tape more episodes during the summer.

We are up to 49 subscribers on our channel, which means we are one away from our very first giveaway, which I will tell you more about when we find our 50th subscriber. All I can promise is that this giveaway will be a good one!

We have four episodes left for season two and our third season will be ready to go shortly thereafter. For now, here is the newest episode to be uploaded.
