Kate Chopin’s short story "Desirée’s Baby" depicts a love story that is far from simple. Desirée was found as a baby by a wealthy French Creole couple, Monsieur and Madame Valmondé, in Louisiana before the American Civil War. She marries Armand, the son of another wealthy French Creole family, and has a son with him. Yet a happy event takes a scandalous turn when upon the child’s birth, the parents note that the child carries African blood in him. Whilst this short story is about social class, it also contains fairytale-like elements and even Gothic tones. Discover the story as read by the uncanny B.J. Harrison.
