    Essay from the year 2012 in the subject English - Literature, Works, grade: 1,0, Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz (Department of English and Linguistics), course: Introduction to Literary Studies, language: English, comment: Erstsemesterarbeit, abstract: Much has been written about Mademoiselle Reisz (in the following abbreviated with Reisz), the independent pianist in Kate Chopin's novel The Awakening. Critics either interpreted her as Edna Pontellier's "artistic role model" (Seidel, "Painting" 231) or as a "conjurer" (Giorcelli 137), who is "always dressed in black" (Giorcelli 136) and therefore portrays a vivid contrast to Edna's feminine friend Adele Ratignolle, who is "always dressed in white" (Giorcelli 136).

Throughout the novel, the recipient is granted only little in-formation about Edna's deceased mother, who remains nameless.

Cristina Giorcelli goes further by stating that " d]eprived of a mother, Edna could not fully be a daughter" (118). Thus, it is, from a psychological approach, deducible that the 28 year old protagonist lacks an important step in her identification process. As Edna confesses to Adele, she feels like walking "idly, aimlessly, unthinking and unguided" (Chopin 38). The link between the lacking guidance and the absent mother is immediately set when t.
