    The Great? Eudora Welty I'm not so sure Let's begin with the worst The Bride of the Innisfallen I had to grind my way to the end Normally I don't grind but as I had decided to write a review I thought it only fair that I read each and every word of every story in the selection The dialogue between the train passengers was So Boring The other two note worthies that fall into the class of 'grind' were Powerhouse I'm guessing a reference to Fats Waller and his band A Still Moment the still moment was so still I had brain freeze maybe it's too hot here or something Anyway let us move rapidly to the high lights definitely Why I live at the PO it's funny it's light it's wicked and totally real coming up next in the power house section is Keela the Outcast Indian Maid this seems to have been removed from some editions I can't think why because it neatly encapsulates how people Just Don't Think they find themselves involved in cruel or racist or ignorant behaviour and say whaat ah jus dun wha I wus told It's funny and it's very very goodNext beloved by many A Worn Path of delight to me is the description of plant life along the way the old Natchez Trace I believe My other fav is The Hitch Hikers it's told with this slight disconnection in the narrative as if the narrator Harris is in a kind of dream There's his strange longing to hear the guitar player's music and then his loss but at the same time this uirky twist where we know that Harris knows it's the guitar player tried to steal his car And then the odd disclosure at the end by the girl when we find that Harris was a piano player it brings in all the dissonant strands of the story brilliant than brilliant I think here lies her geniusNow the in betweens Old Mr Marblehall predictable but the angle of narrative is strange lifts the story; Petrified Man hairdresser gossip found myself getting bored; The Wide Net great landscape description and very reminiscent of Steinbeck's Cannery Row; Lilly Daw Livvie middling And finally the real curiosity of the collection Moon Lake straight away I'm thinking of Katherine Mansfield and her raw perfection of a child's world I loved the walk down to the Lake Closer to the ear than lips could begin words came the swamp sounds closer to the ear and nearer to the dreaming mind And there it is you enter a sort of dream zone Her descriptions of plant and nature are breathless The night sky was pale as a green grape transparent like grape flesh over each tree and then Death comes creeping when the girls are safe at the camp The pondering night stood rude at the tent door the opening fold would let it stoop in it him he had risen up inside Long armed or long winged he stood in the center there where the pole went upIt's mesmerizingSo there you have it She's not an easy read beloved of academics they always like the hard stuff but then the gems and jewels are kind of worth the climb

    On first reading Why I Live at the PO I was impressed by Welty's ability at finding humor in her portrait of a deeply disfunctional Southern family who were haunted by an imagined gentile past As I read through Thirteen Stories however I started to wonder if that was all she was capable of grotesues and cariactures of a certain kind of stagnant SouthernessIt helps that she's really good at it Welty's a critic's sort of writer measured and detail oriented; the observative detail in her stories offset their narrative inertia The uiet Greatness of Eudora Welty the title of recent profile of Welty epitomizes the sort of thing that critics always say about these sorts of writers Danny HeitmanIf her characters share a certain grotesue uality with those of say Flannery O'Connor or Faulker or Anderson Welty has the advantage of seeing them as people Really weird people but maybe that's just a Southern thing By simply refraining from moralism or gradiosity Welty lends her characters a special kind of dignity They may not be good enlightened or self aware in fact they are often poorly behaved racist and hypocritical but at least they are themselves Rating 3 stars Highlights The Wide Net haunting must read of the collection Lily Daw and the Three Ladies Livvie

    There is a thoughtful intentional preciseness to Eudora Welty's prose observational coy that describes her characters and settings in a way that can be inspired Yet it feels surface level There is no intimacy here Not much between the characters themselves and definitely not between character and reader Some authors can overcome a lack of intimacy esp that with the reader through compelling scenarios or by presenting dramatic revelations for the characters Some authors can overcome that lack of intimacy through presenting a textured world that is easy for the reader to dive into and get lost inI never got that feeling with the stories hereEach character feels like its own cog turning at its own speed unwavering ongoing And when these characters meet these cogs clash at odds with each other These cogs pushing against undefined desires needs situations Perhaps the best example of this is in the story A Still Moment which features three men who encounter each other in the middle of nowhere One is intent on bringing salvation one is a killer and one is an artist These three cogs move into the story rattle against each other without finding give and separate At no point did those three characters feel like they belonged together had their lives changed because they were together or or or anything I guess in a case of getting what is promised we did have a still moment where nature takes over the text and a devotional hush falls But without something from the characters it feels unimportantThis dynamic isn't always terrible The last story in the collection The Bride of the Innisfallen showcases the immovability of the cogs as a strength A collection of people seated together in the same train car The story is chaos; a jumble of dialogue and movement and reaction It feels like you might expect a random assortment of people journeying together to feel like No one in a train car has reason to be changed to slow down or speed up their cog to connect with another person It's just a bunch of people existing together tolerating each other making the best of a situation no one really likesNearly every story in the collection feels too long The good gets overcrowded by the tedium of page after page of the same The aforementioned The Bride of the Innisfallen falls prey to this malady It runs about ten pages too long the novelty of the scenario wears off and it just ends up feeling aimless From a plot standpoint one of the best stories is Moon Lake which has a definite setting up of tensions and final relieving of tensions But the story is the longest in the entire book itself split into segments and too much time is spent on factors unrelated to the core narrativeWhy I Live at the PO is the standout story That one sparkling moment when a narrative is clear complete and is told in a succinct manner A young woman after a petty family suabble goes to live at the post office where she works The immovable cogs are a bit mutable as we see the family members flex against each other trying to find an euilibrium But nothing can be so simple and the cogs can't find the proper grip and everything spirals apart It's a rising success that makes the failure of the rest of the stories all the bitterI also want to mention Powerhouse While it falls trap to the aimless formless narrative that plagues most of this collection it's the spot where Welty's prose goes from great to dynamite Much of the story is a band leader playing music with his band You can feel the rumble and stomp of the 12 bar blues the flying sweat and the fervent prayer like affect of his voice It's where Welty's prose ceases to to be seen and instead transports us into that dingy bar I can't imagine someone doing a better job of communicating such an audiblevisual scene in words In other stories Welty's prose is great on an individual sentence level it's the narrative whole where it falls short With Powerhouse it becomes a furious driving force that transcends the need for characters that connect or shorter length it becomes a moment in itselfI don't usually recommend books that I rate this low but the few high points make Thirteen Stories a worthwhile endeavor Especially since most people seem to connect with Welty in a way that I did not

    I know that Eudora Welty is considered one of the great southern writers but personally I have a hard time understanding her writing I think that her stories have a lot of symbolism and depth that is not caught on a uick read You almost have to analyze study and really think about the story One thing I know is that she has a gift of being able to describe a character with a choice of words that bring them to life One of my favorite stories from this book is The Worn Path but there were several I enjoyed

    This was my first encounter with the writings of Eudora Welty whose work I've long wanted to read Based on this initial volume she may be a bit of an acuired taste The stories in this volume are not of uniform uality; some are fairly short and others much too long for short stories At times her work feels like a parody of Southern literature as they are filled with people who seem to do some bizarre and even grotesue things That said the writing is of a high uality and most of the work is not boring I did enjoy Why I Live at the PO a Welty story long held up as one of her best While I plan to read of her work I'll approach a bit warily the next time

    I feel like maybe I’m not super ualified to judge Eudora Welty and give this book 3 stars I do have to admit my bias— I just don’t love short stories It’s hard for me to invest in characters if I’m only with them for a few pages I did enjoy a couple of the stories in this book but some of them bored me to tears despite being well written Maybe read this book if you love southern literature and short stories? Otherwise you may feel as I do not hating the book but not loving it either

    The thirteen stories hand picked by editor Ruth M Vande Kieft are an excellent introduction Welty’s work and will whet your apetite for her full length novels Several of the stories seem at first reading to be plotless and pointless tableaux de vie “slices of life” than story – a scene without a play Yet despite that initial misconception you will find in the days after that the hidden depth of each of these stories blooms in your mind the way fresh cold early spring rosebuds do – layer by layer “The Wide Net” is a perfect example and the first you will encounter here but it has plenty of company “Old Mr Marblehead” and “The Hitchhikers” stand out as stories of deceptive simplicity Indeed that is Welty’s point “the pervading and changing mystery of human relationships” Editor’s introduction Two of the stories in this collection stand out above the rest “A Still Moment” and “The Bride of the Innisfallen” The length limit of these reviews precludes discussing both My remarks on the former are below Happy reading A Still MomentIn “A Still Moment” Welty establishes her simple cosmology an Angel a Devil and existing between them a flawed and vulnerable human being But Welty’s simplicity is always a ruse a deception too facile to take at face value This is her way of preparing us to accompany her behind the façade of what seems obvious at first but is actually complex and layered Welty is a keen observer of human interaction uniue and in my view peerless even as part of the richly introspective company of the other Southern renaissance writers of her day – Capote McCullers Williams Lee and Flagg among others Yet she is at her best when she takes us from what is uotidian in human interaction to what is transcendent In this story Welty shows us that we human beings can outdo the Angel in loving and outdo the Devil in our capacity for wickedness The three characters we meet in this story are each real historical figures who attained a certain notoriety The Devil is John Murrell 1806 1844 often spelled ‘Murell’ or ‘Murrel’ He apparently used all of these variants himself at one time or another Murrell was a nefarious horse thief a crime which earned him the gruesome punishment of having “HT” branded on his right hand He also stole slaves often posing as an abolitionist and promising the slave his freedom only to turn around and profit by re selling the slave to a new master Much lore clouds the biographical facts of this nefarious bandit Charges of cold blooded murder have never been substantiated and as so often happens with notorious criminals legends of criminal activity collected around him his reputation growing like a rolling snowball Lorenz Dow the Angel was an itinerant preacher whose bombastic theatrical soap box gospel preaching made him an object of demand for both evangelism and general curiosity Dow devoted his entire life to two aims preaching ostensibly for the salvation of souls; and peripateticism largely for his own sake rather than for the glorification of “the Kingdom of God” He cared little if at all about the effect this had on his wife She lived most of their married life alone and childless and she pre deceased him Dow died in the care of one of his rare friends George Haller The human being occupying the twilight zone between these two opposites is the artist John James Audubon the famous naturalist painter most revered for his supra real paintings of birds and for whom the bird preservation organization The Audubon Society is named And here at the risk of introducing a bit of a spoiler I prefer to let Welty speak for herself As the three men join up tacking through the famous and infamous Natchez Trace they come upon a heron that has left its migrating formation to drink from the river “The gaze that looks outward must be trained without rest to be indomitable It must see as slowly as Murrell’s ant in the grass as exhaustively as Lorenzo’s angel of God and then Audubon dreamed with his mind going to his pointed brush it must see like this and he tightened his hand on the trigger of the gun and pulled it and his eyes went closed In memory the heron was all its solitude its total beauty All its whiteness could be seen from all sides at once its pure feathers were as if counted and known and their array one upon the other would never be lost But it was not from that memory that he could paint” p96 “The Heron” becomes one of Audubon’s most celebrated works He cossets the corpse under his arm and wanders off leaving both the Angel and the Devil completely awestruck Yet up to this point Welty depicts Audubon as gentle monastically taciturn and confined His act of undeniable cold cruelty hits us like lightning At this point I put the book down; I was near tears For as does Audubon so do we all in ways less stark but no less self serving Audubon is at once our goodness and our evil inextricably wound together in the fabric of our souls; our good intentions and our failures; our pride and our shame To Welty we are both saints and demons brothers and killers all What we ultimately become comes down not to what we see but how we see

    Figured I needed to read some Eudora Welty as part of my continuing Introduction to Mississippi education It's hard to rate a short story collection Some I liked Others I did not care for Still interested in digging into Welty's work

    JUST SOME THOUGHTS I'M JOTTING DOWN WHILE I GO ALONG They're not very coherent or a real review just talking about things that stood out to me that I found interestingThe Wide Net Good story although I feel I lacked the proper context to fully understand the interactions and what they were doing Theme of thinking you understand what you don't at all William believes for certain Hazel has jumped in the river despite not even reading the entire letter The boys that take a baby alligator just because they can also somewhat related to William's relationship with Hazel where she's described as very pretty but otherwise he seems to have no real interest in her Doc is a sort of voice of reason in both casesOld Mr Marblehall I liked the idea of a double life almost just for the sake of it Both his families are described negatively and he seems to find fulfilment only in the having of a double life at all It reminds me of a sort of childish thing to do children always try and hide things from their parents even the most mundane stuff which links both with his having children exactly at the time when he started a double life and with his obsession and apparently his only real interest Weird Tales and similar magazines This also relates to the story as a story the premise is somewhat absurd that nobody has noticed or cared which makes it almost fit for that kind of magazineA Worn Path Pretty stark portrait of desperation The old woman's path reminded me of a sort of shortened down fairy story of someone's uest to save the princess or whatever which I guess in a way is kind of what it isA Still Moment Some dudes want to kill him for his horse but despite outnumbering him let him go because he can't be shot easily? And then in the next paragraph this is implied to be a bad thing??? What Whole story absolutely mystified me I couldn't pin down characters or what was going on or get any kind of feeling out of it and the tortured syntax was especially noticeable here Definitely didn't enjoy itPowerhouse Opens with several paragraphs of racial stereotypes and racism Blecchhh Going to excuse myself from thatcomplaint occasional weird syntax? a few sentences were ordered counter to my expectations confusing me a bit The racial descriptions bother me a bit sometimes than usual Black people seem to be actually stupid and bad even outside of the perceptions of the viewpoint charactersIn general I've enjoyed it Most of the stories are goodgreatamazing but there are a couple I disliked and the racism was a bit grating

    Thirteen StoriesThirteen stories over the days I readThirteen stories of relationshipshumorthat was sometimes over my headShort stories Some times I love them some times I hate their brevity because I feel like I'm missing something Often times I think a person has to be smarter to read and write a short story since what's really going on isn't always obvious There's a subtlety that lies behind 15 30 pages of Times New Roman typeset Then again maybe they aren't intended to be complicated and I'm looking for something that wasn't there Hmmm Anyhow the point of these musings is that upon finishing Eudora Welty's Thirteen Stories I was left feeling a little lost after reading a couple of them that's allWelty does a wonderful job of creating colorful characters She also portrays the wilds of Mississippi with all their beauty and danger Welty leaves me with a respect for her ability to paint people places and things with her words I just don't know if I always know exactly what she's writing about My blog reviews
