After his death, she and her silly young stepmother go back still farther, to the small Mississippi town where she grew up. Alone in the old house, Laurel finally comes to an understanding of the past, herself, and her parents.

Legendary figures of Mississippi's colorful past--keel-boatman Mike Fink and the dread Harp brothers--along with characters from Eudora Welty's own delightful imagination people this rollicking fantasy set along the Natchez Trace. Berry-stained bandit Jamie Lockhart steals pioneer wilderness planter Clement Musgrove's beautiful daughter, Rosamond, away from a home dominated by his ugly, evil second wife, Salome. These and other characters are gathered together in a tale at once acid and gentle, wise and lighthearted, woven as much from the rough homespun of American history as the gossamer thread of fairy stories.
Complete novels : the robber bridegroom ; Delta wedding ; The ponder heart ; Losing battles ; The optimist's daughter by Eudora Welty ( Book )
16 editions published between 1998 and 2000 in English and held by 2,103 libraries worldwide
In a career spanning five decades, Eudora Welty has chronicled her own Mississippi with a depth and intensity matched only by William Faulkner. One of the most influential writers of the century, her novels and stories blend the storytelling tradition of the South with a modernist sensibility attuned to the mysteries and ambiguities of experience. Welty explores the complex abundance of southern, and particularly southern women's, lives with an artistry that Salman Rushdie has called "impossible to overpraise." Complete Novels gathers all of Welty's longer fiction in one volume for the first time. In The Robber Bridegroom (1942), based on a Grimm fairy tale, legendary figures from Mississippi's past, such as the keel-boat captain Mike Fink and the savage outlaws the Harp Brothers, mingle with Welty's own imaginings in a free-ranging and boisterous fantasy set along the Natchez Trace. The richly textured Delta Wedding (1946), set against a backdrop of rural Mississippi in the 1920s, vividly portrays the intricacies of family relationships in its account of the sprawling Fairchild clan. Edna Earle Ponder's unrestrained and delightfully absurd monologue, superb in its capturing of the rhythms of country speech, shows Welty's humor at its idiomatic best in The Ponder Heart (1954), a flight of invention culminating in a murder trial that becomes an occasion for exuberant comedy. The monumental Losing Battles (1970), composed over fifteen years, brings Welty's imaginative gifts to the largest canvas of her career, rendering a Depression-era family reunion with mythic scope and ebullient comic vigor. The volume concludes with The Optimist's Daughter (1972), a taut and moving story of a woman rediscovering the world of her childhood as she comes to terms with her father's death. Often considered her masterpiece, it won the Pulitzer Prize for Literature in 1972.

On writing by Eudora Welty ( Book )
6 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 761 libraries worldwide
Eudora Welty was one of the twentieth century's greatest literary figures. For as long as students have been studying her fiction as literature, writers have been looking to her to answer the profound questions of what makes a story good, a novel successful, a writer an artist. On writing presents the answers in seven concise chapters discussing the subjects most important to the narrative craft, and which every fiction writer should know, such as place, voice, memory, and language. But even more important is what Welty calls "the mystery" of fiction writing-how the writer assembles language and ideas to create a work of art. Originally part of her larger work, The eye of the story, but never before published in a stand-alone volume, On writing is concise, fundamental and authoritative.
On William Faulkner by Eudora Welty ( Book )
6 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 742 libraries worldwide
"Eudora Welty (1909-2001) and William Faulkner (1897-1962) were Mississippi's foremost literary lions of the twentieth century. Their influence on American literature is immeasurable. As Faulkner's compatriot and as a fellow writer, Welty had a unique view of his work. For her comprehensive vision and for her understanding discussions of his art she is one of the most astute critics of the Faulknerian legacy." "On William Faulkner, a record of her admiration, brings together Welty's essays, lectures, and musings on Faulkner. These include such gems as her reviews of Intruder in the Dust and The Selected Letters of William Faulkner, her impassioned defense of Faulkner's work (published as a letter to the New Yorker), her comments when she presented the Gold Medal for Fiction to Faulkner at the National Institute of Arts and Letters awards ceremony in 1962, an excerpt from a letter she wrote to the novelist Jean Stafford, telling of meeting Faulkner and of going sailing with him, and the obituary of the Nobel laureate that Welty wrote for the Associated Press." "In addition, this collection reprints the cryptic postcard Faulkner wrote to Welty from Hollywood and publishes for the first time a caricature of Faulkner that Welty drew in the 1930s, about fifteen years before she met him."--BOOK JACKET.
