"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.

Master of the short-story and arguably one of the best Southern writers, Welty shines in this collection. She explores themes of family duty, repressed sexuality, and the price of living the life of an artist in a close-knit community.
