Michael Kreyling sifts through contemporary reviews and recent criticism in arriving at his assessment." "As he considers the many assessments and reassessments of Welty's work, Kreyling uncovers and discusses the myriad identities that critics have attached to her - that of southern writer, southern gothicist, "Southern Renaissance" writer, modernist, and feminist. Denying the sufficiency of any single label, Kreyling suggests that Welty never wrote to a formula and never wrote the same story twice. Kreyling instead reveals the dynamic growth in the depth and complexity of Welty's vision and literary technique over the course of her career."--BOOK JACKET."
