266 Words1 Page

In The Story of an Hour, Kate Chopin uses foreshadowing of Mrs. Mallards death when it was stated at the beginning that she had heart problems. The Story of an Hour has two kinds of irony situational and dramatic irony. The situational irony is that her supposedly dead husband shows up and the dramatic irony is that the doctors state that she died of “the joy that kills” even though we know that it wasn’t joy that killed her but rather sadness because she lost her freedom she just thought she had obtained. The point of view used in The Story of an Hour is third person limited which is effective for the telling of the story because it allows us to be aware of Louise’s response to her husband’s death after she locked herself in her room.
