“What the essayists share is a commendable receptivity to the complexities of Chopin’s art . . . plus a willingness to try different approaches to Chopin’s life and work.”—Studies in Short Fiction 

Kate Chopin Reconsidered deserves attention. Such fine biographical work, some interesting ideas about connections, some studies of neglected Chopin texts, several syntheses of recent feminist arguments, and a major essay by John Carlos Rowe all make it a useful addition to American literary scholarship.”—South Atlantic Review
