  • Users’ Guide: A Word from the Editor
    • Abstract: It has become a tradition to toast “our absent friends” as Eudora Welty taught many of us, and this year, we remember three great men significant in the life and studies of Eudora Welty: W. U. McDonald, Jr., who founded the Eudora Welty Newsletter in 1977; Timothy Seldes, Welty’s agent who bought Russell and Volkening, Inc., in 1972; and William Jay Smith, the extraordinary poet who met Welty in Italy in 1950 and became a lifelong friend. Suzanne Marrs and I offer brief tributes to these three in an effort to illustrate appreciation for their leadership, generosity, and gentlemanliness.During the 2015 Eudora Welty Biennial, working in the Eudora Welty Collection at the Mississippi Department of Archives and ...

  • A Tribute to William U. McDonald, Jr.
    • Abstract: W. U. McDonald, Jr., the founding editor of the Eudora Welty Newsletter (1977–1997), died on January 13, 2016. Catherine Chengges, McDonald’s friend and the stalwart author of the annual “Eudora Welty Checklist of Scholarship,” visited “Mac” in early January and reported that although frail, he still had his sense of humor.Eudora Welty was often reported as saying, “Here’s to our absent friends,” and I find myself quite without any better words to express my feelings about McDonald’s absence, which followed so soon after the loss of William Jay Smith and Tim Seldes. Noel Polk conjured the Eudora Welty Newsletter with McDonald and recommended me to him for my first assignments of collating substantive changes of ... Read More

  • A Tribute to Timothy Seldes
    • Abstract: Timothy Seldes, Eudora Welty’s literary agent beginning in 1972, died on December 5, 2015, just eleven days short of his eighty-ninth birthday. It is difficult to imagine with clarity the day that Diarmuid Russell and Henry Volkening sold their agency to the younger Seldes, although Seldes speaks of it in his interview for Narrative magazine. (Volkening died soon after in 1972; Russell in 1973.) Welty had written to Ken Millar of “a little gathering of old friends and clients for Diarmuid on the occasion of his retirement, given by Tim Seldes, who’s taken over the agency—& whom Diarmuid has all confidence in” (qtd. in Marrs, Meanwhile 140). Cited by the Washington Post as “one of New York’s most prestigious ... Read More

  • A Tribute to William Jay Smith
    • Abstract: The distinguished poet William Jay Smith, Eudora Welty’s good friend, died on August 18, 2015, at the age of ninety-seven. In addition to writing many volumes of poetry, Smith penned books of children’s verse, translations of poems by Jules Laforgue and Andrei Voznesensky, memoirs, and a collection of his own astute literary criticism. He took bachelor’s and master’s degrees in French literature at Washington University; served in the US Navy during World War II; was a Rhodes Scholar; taught at Hollins College, Columbia University, and Williams College; and from 1968 to 1970, served as consultant in poetry to the Library of Congress (a post we now call Poet Laureate).The intersections of Smith’s life with Welty’s ...

  • Of Memory, Place, and Friendship: Eudora Welty’s Unpublished Review
           of Bowen’s Court
    • Abstract: To say that Eudora Welty was a successful writer of short stories and novels is to state the obvious and to overlook a number of her other talents. Not only did Welty possess a spark of creative genius that led to her success as an author and photographer, but she also had a keen critical eye and a talent for reviewing a staggering variety of important works, including “first novels, best-sellers, southern novels, translations, short story volumes, collected stories, essays, histories, criticism, biographies, memoirs, travel books, journals and letters, photography, children’s books and fairy tale collections, even a book on growing healthy house plants” (McHaney xiv). Welty was a prolific reviewer, and beginning ... Read More

New York: The Ecco Press. _______.                              By Eudora Welty“This is Bowen’s Court as the past has left it,” Elizabeth Bowen wrote in 1939,an isolated, partly unfinished house, grandly conceived and plainly and strongly built. Near the foot of mountains, it has little between it and the bare fields that run up the mountainside. Larger in manner than in actual size, it stands up in Roman urbane strongness in a land on which the Romans never set foot. It is the negation of mystical Ireland: its bald walls rebut the surrounding, disturbing light. Imposed on ... Read More

  • Eudora Welty’s 1985 Reading of William Faulkner’s As I Lay Dying,
           Sanctuary, and Light in August
    • Abstract: In the fall of 1985, Eudora Welty was reading the first volume of William Faulkner novels to be published by the Library of America, William Faulkner: Novels 1930–1935, which included As I Lay Dying, Sanctuary, Light in August, and Pylon, edited by Joseph Blotner and Noel Polk. She wrote notes, indicated page numbers for quotations, jotted phrases, and drafted opening and summative statements for a review for the New York Times Book Review. She had a March 1, 1986, deadline.Welty had read As I Lay Dying in the Modern Library edition in 1946 (Kreyling 121–22).

  • Race, Nature, and Decapitation in Eudora Welty’s “A Curtain of
           Green”
    • Abstract: Harriet Pollack notes how critics have for decades labeled Eudora Welty as “callously unaware of or ambivalent toward racism,” especially that racism as practiced in her still-segregated American South (1). This view is demonstrated perhaps most famously by Diana Trilling’s 1946 response to Delta Wedding, wherein the critic admits that it is difficult to separate her distaste for Welty’s novel from her “resistance to the culture out of which it grows and which it describes so fondly.” Indeed, for Trilling, Welty had turned toward “that part of the Southern scene which is most available to myth and celebrative legend and, in general, to the narcissistic Southern fantasy” (578). Pollack’s 2013 essay collection ... Read More

  • Tracing a Literary and Epistolary Relationship: Eudora Welty and Her
           Editor, Robert Giroux
    • Abstract: In January 1949, Robert Giroux became Eudora Welty’s editor and most likely would have remained so for the rest of her publishing career had he not resigned from Harcourt, Brace in late March 1955 for reasons that Welty possibly never suspected. As a passing acquaintance of Welty and close friend of Giroux, who had edited my Walker Percy: A Life,1 I gradually learned of the professional relationship of Eudora and Bob mainly from the numerous conversations he and I had and from my access to his personal papers and the archives of Harcourt, Brace. My first hint that Bob felt a certain uneasiness with Eudora started in 1990. About a month after Walker Percy died on May 10, 1990, Bob, Percy’s editor at Farrar, Straus & ... Read More

  • Learning to Listen: The Way a Society Speaks in Eudora Welty’s “Where
           Is the Voice Coming From?” and “The Demonstrators”
    • Abstract: At the March on Washington on August 28, 1963, one month after Eudora Welty published “Where Is the Voice Coming From?,” Bob Dylan performed “Only a Pawn in Their Game” for the first time. In their own ways, both Welty and Dylan reflect upon the motivations behind the Medgar Evers assassination and try to make sense of how something like this murder could occur. Dylan is straightforward in his assessment, and he makes his position clear as he reiterates at the end of each verse, “But it ain’t him to blame / He’s only a pawn in their game.” In these lines, Dylan argues that forces beyond the individual actions of one man are to blame for what happened that June night, and throughout the song he asks listeners to ...

  • Review Essay: “A Fine Romance”
    • Abstract: Eudora Welty and Ross Macdonald met for the first time in person in March 1971. Both were visiting New York City on literary business, and Ross Macdonald, the pen name of Kenneth Millar (1915–1983), waiting in the lobby of the Algonquin Hotel (a more hackneyed private detective ploy than his alter ego in the Lew Archer series of novels would ever have tried), introduced himself when Welty reached the elevator. “It went up without her”—as Macdonald might have coolly and tersely ended that scene had he written it. They went out for a walk in Manhattan and dinner with his publisher, Alfred Knopf. It was, for both of them, a memorable time of personal companionship they were seldom to share again.It must have been ... Read More

I thought a book of letters was a grand idea, but it took us many a year to get it underway.Tom and I worked very smoothly together via email. He transcribed all the letters from Kenneth Millar (aka Ross Macdonald) to Eudora, and I transcribed all of Eudora’s letters to ... Read More

    • Abstract: Change and new and continued partnerships will again frame my annual “Practical Matters” report. Last year’s narrative addressed staff who had left; this year’s will bring readers up-to-date on those replacements.Maggie Lowery Stevenson, a well-known Jacksonian with a long career in sales and community outreach at Lemuria Books, joined our staff June 5, replacing Megan Bankston as Special Projects Coordinator. This was the morning after “June Recital Remix, an Evening of Music and Dancing in Eudora’s Garden,” our site’s contribution to the inaugural “Welty Biennial” curated by David Kaplan. I knew Maggie was a trooper when the very first task I asked her to help me with was toting four heavy garage barrels of trash ... Read More

    • Abstract: The second Welty Biennial is in its planning stages. The 2017 theme will be “Parallel Mississippi: Parting the Curtain,” with a focus on the middle-class lives and elite society of African-Americans in the state of Mississippi and the unexpected ways Welty’s writing and life made connections and missed connecting with that world. The venues of the 2107 Biennial will be site specific, with an emphasis on portrait photography and oral history. Developing themes from 2015, the 2017 installations will feature quilts, graffiti, and live music.Specific dates for the late spring 2017 will be announced as soon as confirmed.

  • Eudora Welty and the Short-Story Cycle: A Report on My Research at the
           Mississippi Department of Archives and History
    • Abstract: As the recipient of the 2015 Eudora Welty Research Fellowship, I stayed in Jackson and researched at the Mississippi Department of Archives and History from May 18 to 30, 2015. In this report, I would like to demonstrate how the primary resources at MDAH helped me to elaborate my plans for my project. My dissertation focuses on the short-story cycle as a genre in terms of the historical and cultural context of the American South. A short-story cycle, sometimes referred to as a story sequence or a composite novel, is a collection of short stories in which each story is independent, but simultaneously interrelated to one another. Southern writers have produced many masterpieces of the short-story cycle, including ... Read More
