Faulkner and Welty and the Southern Literary Tradition

University Press of Mississippi

This chapter examines the persistence of outsiders, rootless wanderers, hitchhikers, the lonely, inarticulate and frustrated, the unloved and the unlovely, in Eudora Welty’s fiction. It also considers scenes where land and water meet, from Delta Wedding to “The Bride of the Innisfallen,” “Going to Naples,” “Circe,” and “No Place for You, My Love.” In addition, the chapter discusses the connection between traveling and family as well as familial violence against women in Welty’s works.

Keywords:   outsiders, wanderers, hitchhikers, Eudora Welty, land, water, traveling, family, familial violence, women
