Regional Writing at Its Finest
Eudora Welty wrote eloquently about the authentic characters that surrounded her in her native home of Jackson, Missippi and other southern areas. As a southerner myself whose grandparents came from Mississippi, I revelled in her beautiful descriptive prose that illuminated the characters and happenings of everyday life from that particular region of the country.Was this review helpful?

Mrs. Welty was truly gifted at presenting a piece of writing that surprisingly leads the reader to consider her point of view without realizing that you're doing so. I have never read such wonderful accounts of the mundaneness and sameness of everyday life; with her vivid portrayals my thoughts touched back to long forgotten memories, feelings and sights- some wonderful, some tragic- that are uniquely southern.
The reader should find this a wonderful example of Mrs. Welty's poignant understanding of the people of this area and will enjoy the perfect presentation through her keen and insightful writing style.
