Abstract:

Far from gunsmoke and cannon noise, the heroins of the Civil War forged a brave new era for American women. Nowhere is that watershed captured with more stunning intellect and humanity than in these spellbinding storied by ten acclaimed writers. From the taut action of Caroline Gordon's "Hear the Nightingale Sing" to the languor of Grace King's "Bayou l'Ombre," these stories span the North and South, slavery and freedom. In Kate Chopin's "The Locket," girls learn to romanticize war, while Louisa May Alcott's abolitionist nurse confronts its agony in "The Brothers." Elizabeth Stuart Phelps Ward gives new meaning to fidelity in "Comrades," while Rose Terry Cooke demystifies the making of "A Woman." After the violence of "Turkey Hunt" and the bitter loss of "The Battleground," Eudora Welty's "The Burning" shines as a towering portrait of survival and triumph.
