Though No Relation, Kate Chopin Utilizes Frederic Chopin in her Literature


The following homage to Chopin also highlights the piano music from this great movie, The Pianist. I highly recommend that movie.
We want to take in the music and appreciate the drama and tension that Chopin (the composer) creates in the nocturne. Then we can appreciate the music that Edna loves to hear Mademoiselle Reisz play on the piano. Now try to find a passage in the text where Chopin uses this type of music to dramatize a character’s emotions.
