The Golden ApplesBook - 1977
"Collection of short stories by Eudora Welty, published in 1949. The stories had all been published previously, and Welty added one novella-length story, "Main Families in Morgana." Symbolism from Greek mythology unifies the stories, all of which are set in the Mississippi Delta town of Morgana over a 40-year period. The hero of "Moon Lake" and the guitarist in "Music from Spain" are Perseus figures. King MacLain, the protagonist of "Shower of Gold," is a sexually adventurous Zeus figure."--Merriam-Webster Encyclopedia of Literature.
