Portraits is a collection of 29 short stories by Kate Chopin. Each story illustrates why Chopin is read now with such pleasure and recognition and was so firmly censored and castigated at the end of the 19th century. Her characters are full of life, faults and passion; she wrote with relish of great love, of unsatisfactory marriage, of the nature and implications of illicit romance and adultery.

Born and raised in St. Louis, Chopin (1850-1904) moved to Louisiana to marry the son of a cotton grower. A mother of six by the age of twenty-eight and a widow at thirty-two, she turned to writing to support her young family. She is best known today for The Awakening (1899), a portrait of marriage and motherhood so controversial it fell out of print shortly after publication and was not rediscovered until the 1960s.
