Eudora Welty (1909-2001) was born in Jackson, Mississippi. She worked as a photographer during the Depression and published her first book, a collection of short stories, in 1941. By the time of her death in 2001, Welty had established herself as one of the most important and beloved American writers of the twentieth century.

The Collected Stories of Eudora Welty is a collection of short stories by Eudora Welty, first published by Houghton Mifflin in 1980. Collected Stories demonstrates the author's ability to write from the point of view of diverse characters ranging from Aaron Burr to a deaf black servant boy, a traveling salesman, eccentric Southern matrons, and countless others.

The Collected Stories of Eudora Welty won the 1982 National Book Award. There are forty-two short stories in this lengthy 622 page book. I enjoyed the earlier stories in the book but not many of the later ones. Welty’s stories feel quite dated reading some seventy years later. Here are some of the ones I liked. 1. Why I Live at the Post Office. Sister alienates family by making too many assumptions but is able to get the family on her side by telling blatant lies and manipulating others. 2. Old The Collected Stories of Eudora Welty won the 1982 National Book Award

The rain was a regular thing, and would come about two o'clock in the afternoon. One day, almost as late as five o'clock, the sun was still shining olished sky, and down below, in the trees along the street and in the rows of flower gardens in the town, every leaf reflected the sun from a hardness like a mirror surface. Nearly all the women sat in the windows of their houses, fanning and sighing, waiting for the rain

This omnibus volume by one of the South's greatest writers includes stories published prior to 1980. Stories are as good in themselves and as influential on the aspirations of others as any since Hemingway's. The breadth of Welty's offering is finally most visible not in the variety of types-farce, satire, horror, lyric, pastoral, mystery-but in the clarity and solidity and absolute honesty of a lifetime's vision.

This complete collection includes all the published stories of Eudora Welty. There are forty-one stories in all, including the earlier collections A Curtain of Green, The Wide Net, The Golden Apples, and The Bride of the Innisfallen, as well as previously uncollected stories.

I feel humble even saying she is one of America's greats. If you have trouble 'getting' her writing, you probably aren't a Southerner! Neither am I so when I listened to her tell her own stories and it made a world of difference to hear the cadence and the accent. Even though it's been years since I heard her read (it was a tape that I can't play...having no tape player any longer)...I cant't help but HEAR her voice whenever I READ her words. What a gift she is to us readers. The eccentric characters, the humor...her view of Southern life. Her stories stay fresh and delightful even when I read the over and over through the years.

I recently toured Welty'so home in Jackson, MS. Good background to have while reading her stories. If you are interested in southern culture or are familiar with it, this is a great story to read.

I love having a collection of stories that shows the author's experimentation with different voices. We usually have "Why I Live at the P.O." in anthologies, and it was refreshing to read it again, in some ways for the first time decades after junior high. But to have the less well known titles tucked away into a collection like this shows the breadth of the author's talent and the politics of anthologies!

This is a voluminous anthology of short stories. There are four collections of short stories and two "uncollected" short stories at the end. I believe they are in chronological order. I tried to read one story a day and it took me perhaps two months to work my way completely through them. I purchased both the Kindle and Audiobook and read and listened at the same time. This added to the experience for me. Some of the narration was excellent.

Reading these stories in chronological order had an educational value for me. I could sense the evolution and maturation of the author. In truth, my own tastes are fairly basic and my favorite collection was the first, "A Green Curtain and Other Stories". However that is simply a matter of personal taste and all of the writing is excellent.

It seemed to me that as Miss Welty's writing career went on she became more involved in symbolism. Her first stories are mostly in the American South and this continues throughout. The first collection appears to me to be largely "Southern Gothic".

Later, some of Miss Welty's settings are other locations such as San Francisco and on a ship voyage. I have read an excellent biography of Miss Welty by Suzanne Marrs. I have discovered that some of these stories have an autobiographical aspect to them. Learning about that has made a great difference in my appreciation of these particular stories.

She writes a story based on Greek Mythology. Some of the later stories are quite excellent. All are very professional. I enjoyed some of the later, but not others. It may be merely that she became too sophisticated in style for me. One of the last stories, "Where Is The Voice Coming From?" was quite stark and dramatic. Another later story, "The Burning" proved very painful for me to read.

In summary, this was a very professional product, reflecting the work of a truly great, iconic author. I am very glad that I was to read these stories. Thank You...

Had I more experience in reading Eudora Welty, I would have given these collected stories five stars. I am a latecomer to her writings. She is obviously a superb writer, but, being new to the way she writes, I tended to get lost in the narratives, losing track of who's speaking and where the story is going. She's writing from a Southern perspective, and it would help to be well-versed in her writing style before reading these. These collected stories are long; the more I read, the more I began to understand her writing and appreciated it more.

What a wonderful find- all of Eudora Welty's stories in one volume to carry and read on Kindle! One of our greatest Southern writers, Welty creates both ordinary and quirky people and situations with a wit and wise voice that is unique. The most charming of our Southern pantheon of mid-century writers (Faulkner, Williams, O'Connor, Capote, Harper Lee, etc.) If you don't already know Welty, do get this book - dozens of stories and may voices and moods!

Some of the best short fiction ever written. Eudora Welty painted masterpieces with words.
Beautifully written stories that reflect the aftermath and hardships of life many decades after the end of slavery. Her characters are so true to themselves. What a shame that this author has gone unrecognized for so long! I look forward to reading all of her books.
