"A collection of fiction stories by Eudora Welty that portray life in the southern Mississippi area." "In a career spanning five decades, Eudora Welty has chronicled her Mississippi with a depth and intensity matched only by William Faulkner. Here for the first time in one volume, is all of her longer fiction. The 'Robber Bridegroom,' legendary figures from Mississippi's past mingle with Welty's own imaginings in an exuberant unreality set along the Natchez Trace. The richly textured 'Delta Wedding' vividly portrays the complexities of family relationships set against the backdrop of rural Mississippi in the 1920s. In 'The Ponder Heart' Edna Earle Ponder's unrestrained and delightfully absurd monologue shows Welty's humor at its idiomatic best. The monumental 'Losing Battles,' 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 Optimist's Daughter,' a taut and moving story of a woman coming to terms with her father's death, won the Pulitzer Prize for Literature in 1972...." "One of the most original, subtle and magical of American writers. Her prose is incandescent and her vision supremely humane." Joyce Carol Oates

Overview: The radiant world of Eudora Welty's art is charged by a poignant and familiar beauty, and here in a stunning book of her photographs is a dazzling record of this writer's unique and special vision. It is unusual-remarkable-for a major writer also to be an accomplished photographer. Eudora Welty is one of the very few whose great talent has been expressed in both photographs and fiction. This book brings together in one volume about 250 representative photographs from the few thousand that she took during the 1930s, '40s, and '50s. Although her camera's view finder compresses much, like the frame in which she conceives her fiction, it finds elements that convey her deep compassion and her artist's sensibilities. From the confines of her native Mississippi these photographs unfold the world of Eudora Welty's art, reaching, extending, and exploring. In the Deep South of Depression times, when she began writing, she discovered the place into which she had been born and which would always be her subject. From here, as these photographs show, she approached and risked the outside world. From rural Mississippi to New Orleans, Charleston, New York City, and Yaddo, and then to Ireland, England, and the Continent Welty widened her vision and expanded her art. These photographs reveal that both in her fiction and in the pictures she took it has always been in place, in the special qualities of what is local, that she found her impulse. "I was smitten by the identity of place wherever I was," she said in 1989, "from Mississippi on---I still am." The legions of appreciators of Welty's photographs see in them the feelings and vision that are the hallmarks of her great literary art in such novels as Losing Battles and The Optimist's Daughter, in her memoir One Writer's Beginnings, and in her volumes of short stories. This serves as a definitive book of Welty's photographs, compromising pictures from her personal collection, from the repository of Welty materials at the Mississippi Department of Archives and History, and from One Time, One Place, an album of her Depression-era photographs published in 1972. Included are Mississippi scenes and people, emblems of folk life, carnival signs and performers, photographs taken in Charleston, New Orleans, Mexico, New York City, Ireland, Paris, Nice, Italy, Wales, and Saratoga Springs, N.Y., and a significant group of Welty's portraits of family members and friends

In the aftermath of World War I, many modern-minded Americans, particularly women, were eager to do away with outdated traditions and claim new rights and freedoms. This program investigates the culture of the roaring twenties--women's suffrage, prohibition, the exploration of the Antarctic, the Scopes trial, the establishment of the Ku Klux Klan, the new music called "Jazz", technological innovations and finally the stock market crash and the subsequent economic depression
