Civil War women : American women shaped by conflict in stories by Alcott, Chopin, Welty, and others ( Book )
1 edition published in 1988 in English and held by 632 libraries worldwide
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

Best stories of Sarah Orne Jewett by Sarah Orne Jewett( Book )
7 editions published between 1988 and 1990 in English and held by 567 libraries worldwide
These eight stories - which constitute a valuable historical and literary record- represent the first serious treatment of the Irish in America by an important literary figure. After a visit to Ireland in 1882, this superior 19th-century New England writer expanded the scope of her interests to provide fictional portraits of the newly arrived Irish population. She told the sometimes happy, and more often sad tales of their acculturation. For Jewett, the Irish comprised a unique and fascinating addition to the New England local-color figures that it was her life's work to represent in literary fiction. She believed the Irish immigrant brought a new vitality and charm to the New England landscape. In their introduction, editors Jack Morgan and Louis A. Renza point out that in these stories Jewett displayed a remarkable empathy for the Irish. Undoing the "Paddy" stereotype favored in nineteenth-century Yankee discourse, Jewett exhibited an understanding of the immigrant psyche unheard of among her fellow writers - including Emerson and Thoreau, both of whom wrote disdainfully of the Irish. Morgan and Renza further discuss the stories in the context of contemporary multicultural and ethnic concerns, showing that Jewett's Irish stories demonstrate a renewal - a redefining, questioning, and expanding of cultural boundaries within concentrated American communities, her own New England area in particular. As such, the editors contend, the stories constitute important documents in the history of a country still engaged with the multi-ethnic as well as the multi-individual paradox of E pluribus unum. -- Publisher description
