In the wake of having received extremely harsh criticism for her novel The Awakening, Kate Chopin would never publish another piece of her writing. The story “The Storm “was not published until it was included in a book of her work titled The Complete Works of Kate Chopin in 1969 (Ward 89). The story uses this storm as a metaphor for quick passion, erupting in the middle of a thunderstorm and the electricity of the attraction compared to the crack of lightning storm. The descriptions of the storm intermingled description of passion even as the storm and when Chopin writes “with one hand she clasped his head, her lips lightly touching his way. The other hand stroked the sitting with his muscular shoulders. The growl of thunder was distant and passing” (Ward 93).
