Your husband is dead. Brently was killed in a railroad disaster.
Im going to my room. Alone. Do not follow me.
"free, free, free!" "Free!Body and soul free!"
In this picture, Josephine is telling her sister, Mrs.Mallard, that her husband was killed in a railroad accident. The husbands friend, Richards, is also there. Mrs. Mallard suffers from heart disease, therefore, they have to tell her the news as gentle as possible.
I have returned!
After hearing the news, Mrs.Mallard goes upstairs to her room to process the information.
While Mrs.Mallard was looking out her window, she saw the beauty of nature and was enlightened. Now, she realizes she is free from the stereotypical life of a 1900s housewife.
Josephine and Mrs.Mallard were making their way down the steps, when they heard someone opening the front door. In comes Mr. Mallard and at shock Mrs. Mallard collapses and dies. Doctors say her death is caused from heart disease, a "joy that kills".
