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. 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.
