The delicious breath of rain was in the air. In the street below a peddler was crying his wares. The notes of a distant song which someone was singing reached her faintly, and countless sparrows were twittering in the eaves.” “The Story of an Hour” Reading Interpretation Questions What kind of relationships do the Mallards have?

Not until Paragraph 16 does the reader learn the protagonist’s (Mrs. Mallard’s) first name, Louise. Why does the narrator delay in providing the reader with Mrs. Mallard’s first name?
