Part 1- The Story of and Hour is a story about a women who is told that her husband “died” in a fatal railroad disaster but she later finds out he was fine all along. I personally think the story was written very well and appropriately for the time era it was set in. I was kind of confused about whether she was happy or sad that her husband died. The story isn’t a genre that i typically read but i do like the story. I am conflicted on whether her reaction was justified or not. I personally am very glad that life for women has changed drastically and I don’t know what it would’ve been like living back then because life was controlled by men.
