Sample text

It is this simple, natural acceptance of everything, of beauty and ugliness, insanity, cruelty and gentle faith which helps the author create her characters with such clear sureness. Lily Daw, the feeble-minded girl who wanted to marry a xylophone player, the little clubfooted Negro, the two hitch-hikers or the traveling salesman are only a few of the many characters which the reader will not easily forget. On each page one senses the author’s fanatic love of people.

The parallel forced upon us, particularly by those of Miss Welty’s stories which are based on an oblique humor, is her likeness to Gogol. ” Like Gogol, Miss Welty opens the doors and describes the setting, almost inch by inch.

New Republic, November 16, 1942, pp. 646–47. Murder is soundless as a spout of blood, as regular and rhythmic as sleep. Many find a skull and a little branching of bones between two floors of leaves. In the sky is a perpetual wheel of buzzards. A circle of bandits counts out gold, with bending shoulders more slaves mount the block and go down, a planter makes a gesture of abundance with his riding whip, a flatboatman falls back from the tavern to the river below with scarcely time for a splash, a rope descends from a tree and curls into a noose.
