Abstract or Summary
  • The purpose of this project is to draw a more explicit connection between Eudora Welty and the literary influence Emily Brönte had on her, revealing Welty as a writer who is more integrated into literary tradition and history than many readers and critics have acknowledged. Both writers rely heavily on place and the power of the supernatural and mythological in their storytelling. Comparing these two writers reveals that, while both remain iconoclastic within their own timeframes and genres, their writing complements each other, showing a similarity of thought, style, and emotion. This comparison also establishes a kind of progression, as Welty takes ideas introduced by Brönte and expands upon them, making them her own both literarily and culturally.
