This paper explores the timelessness of Eudora Welty and her position as a Southern writer in the paradigm of authorship. The paper goes on to show how Eudora Welty was a Southern writer who based her settings and characters on the South and yet, her themes were universal.


From the Paper:

"What would we consider a Southern Writer: A writer who is from the South or one who depicts the South in a manner that allows the reader to visualize the actual cultural values that the region upheld? In context of actuality it can be both and yet, for the purpose of this paper I will take a Southern writer to be one who depicts the Southern culture in its realistic form. Eudora Welty was one such writer. She wrote on the subject of the Southern culture and created a vivid representation of what she perceived the South to be like. This perception could then be considered false, yet, the manner in which she wrote and the characters that she presented allow the reader to acknowledge the reality of her creation. Then, in the same vein of thought "contemporary" is defined as currently or recently producing works of fiction, excluding Eudora Welty through her death but accepting her as being of this decade. However, the themes of her stories were such that on a deeper analysis it is realized that she was not as regional as it may have seemed."
