Synopsis

Eudora Welty by Prof. Harold Bloom

Novelist, short story writer, and photographer, Eudora Welty has come to typify the Southern writer. Many of her works focus on interpersonal relationships, and they acutely capture the dialect and feel of her Mississippi roots. Among her best-known works are the short stories Why I Live at the P.O. (inspiration for the software e-mail program, Eudora[registered]) and The Petrified Man. Her novel The Optimist's Daughter won the Pulitzer Prize in 1973. This freshly revised edition in Bloom's Modern Critical Views provides new perspective on this beloved American writer. Key critical analyses and solid study features combine to form a platform especially helpful for compare-and-contrast papers on Welty's work.
