fostering scholarship and academic community among Welty scholars

The essays in New Essays on Eudora Welty, Class, and Race, edited by Harriet Pollack, clear fresh and surprising paths into the author’s complexly nuanced attentiveness to issues of race, class, and gender. This is a collection deeply steeped in the physical embodiments and spatial dimensions of Welty’s stories and their richly associative powers; and like the southern landscape, both natural and socially constructed, these essays are as textured and generative as the author’s work itself: high praise indeed!
