Eudora Welty, Updated Edition (Modern Critical Views)


Novelist, short story writer, and photographer, Eudora Welty has come to typify the Southern writer. Many of her works focus on interpersonal relationships, and they acutely capture the dialect and feel of her Mississippi roots. Among her best-known works are the short stories "Why I Live at the P.O." (inspiration for the software e-mail program, Eudora[registered]) and "The Petrified Man." Her novel "The Optimist's Daughter" won the Pulitzer Prize in 1973.
