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 612 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

"There are thirteen nightmares here, one for each state of Dixie. Dark visions, these, by such authors as John D. MacDonald, the best-selling mystery writer; Jesse Stuart, one of the nation's best regional writers; Karl Edward Wagner, a psychiatrist whose knowledge of the abysses of the mind gives his tales a terror of solid conviction; and William Gilmore Simms, full-grown when Madison was President, one of whose works Poe himself called the best ghost story he'd ever read. These nightmares concern us all. For this is not merely a regional anthology. These stories are set not only in the South, but in the dark heart of man."--Page 4 of cover
