The two stories of “The Story of an Hour” by Kate Chopin and “Popular Mechanics” by Raymond Carver are similar yet differ in a way. The biggest and most noticeable similarity is the irony that these stories consist of. Both of these stories can be made apparent of the horrific ironic endings. However, these two stories’ writing styles differ in many ways.“Popular Mechanics” is apparently written using minimalismideas, where “The Story of an Hour,” has some minimalism but is more of a classic short story. The two stories could be categorized as minimalism stories but written in different styles to portray different meanings. There are many comparisons between the two stories but they also reveal different ideas and meanings.

Reading this story you are given background information and details about the main story unlike “Popular Mechanics” therefore giving it more of a classic short story feeling. This story is about a woman by the name of Mrs. Louise Mallard who receives word that her husband has died in a trainwreck while away on business. In the opening of this story you are told that Mrs. Mallard has a heart condition and that any emotional breaking news would be bad and to be caring and gentle. When she received the news that her husband had passed and the news was a shock, she went to her room alone to weep and sorrow over his passing. As the news became processed, she became less sad and more relieved of her husband's passing. Mrs. Mallard felt as though she had been set free and the weight of the world was let off of her shoulders. She finally left her bedroom and returned to her sister’s company after this. But after leaving and walking downstairs that weight of the world fell onto her as her husband entered the front door. The shock of her husband’s presence and her failing, weak heart killed her and similarly to the other story, it ends with great irony, reading, “When the doctors came, they said she had died of heart disease- of joy that kills,” (Chopin
