This chapter examines the transatlantic friendship between Eudora Welty and Elizabeth Bowen, which provides invaluable insights into the aesthetic and intercultural transactions between Irish and southern literature, specifically through their oeuvre of short stories and their critical insights into the form. It shows how the often-asserted cultural compatibility of the Irish and southern literary renaissances might be perceptual and coincidental, shortchanging the individuality of writers who offer their personal maturation as a model for regional and national regeneration.
