Teaching the Works of Eudora Welty

Recent attention to sexual assaults on college and university campuses has led us to reconsider the psychological impact of what we teach on the students we teach. Statistical studies tell us that high percentages of our male and female students have suffered some form of sexual assault, ranging from rape to verbal abuse. Inasmuch as Welty’s fiction makes use of rape as a motif quite often, we should re-evaluate our teaching approaches and temperament in the classroom lest we re-open troubling wounds.

Keywords:   Rape, sexual violence, stalking, aggression, The Robber Bridegroom, “Moon Lake”
