Allusions to Kate Chopin's Work Featured in HBO's Treme, Episode 9

As NPR said, "Spoiler Alert." This is about the Kate Chopin portion of last night's episode nine of Tremé--"Wish Someone Would Care." I feel the same way Josh Jackson does, which is my English degree is paying off.

Thanks to some literature classes, he could answer a question about Kate Chopin's book referenced by the character Creighton Bernette while teaching Tulane University students. Jackson used to work for WWOZ, an actual jazz radio station here in New Orleans that has a role in the show. Please read more at the New Orleans Literature Examiner.
