CLYTIE EUDORA WELTY PDF

Share via Email Eudora Welty. Long before her death in , aged 92, she had become the grande dame of American letters: an infallibly polite and humorous southern lady who still lived in the same house, in Jackson, Mississippi, where she was born. More considered analysis uncovers stylistic and thematic affiliations with Virginia Woolf, DH Lawrence, Jane Austen, Isak Dinesen, James Joyce and Chekhov: a blend that, combined with her own sensibility, proved a potent mixture. No special knowledge is required to appreciate the stories — particularly masterpieces like June Recital and Music from Spain — but once you begin tracing the threads of deeper meaning running through them, uncovering their multiplying levels of complexity quickly becomes addictive. Welty often drew criticism from northern critics for refusing to use her fiction to do anything other than denounce the south as corrupt and racist.

Welty often drew criticism from northern critics for refusing to use her fiction to do anything other than denounce the south as corrupt and racist. In response, she wrote an essay entitled "Must the Novelist Crusade?

Defenders including her New Yorker editor William Maxwell and the novelist Toni Morrison have argued that the iniquities of southern attitudes to race are present throughout her work. Complications arise because her characters can be both racist and rounded: that is, rather than ignoring racism she is practising subtlety, creating complex characters, and asking the reader to do some work. Certainly her story, "Keela, the Outcast Indian Maiden" , in which two white men argue and fight in front of an old black man, is assiduous in its dissection of white guilt and harmful complacency.

Elsewhere, racist attitudes are presented so casually that they shock more than denouncement would. In "Shower of Gold", hearing children playing on the road, Kate Rainey says: "We heard them charge out, but we thought it was just a nigger that was going by for them to scare, if we thought anything.

There was, however, an occasion when Welty did engage in crusading. It was rushed into print by the New Yorker, appearing shortly after Byron De La Beckwith was arrested for the killing. Both stories take the form of compressed, one-day odysseys: a Joycean journey through the streets of San Francisco, and a drive down a crackling road of shells in the Mississippi river delta.

They are both encounters between strangers whose relationships teeter between attraction and hostility. Both have something of the fever dream about them. Next: Bruno Schulz.
