From the heartbroken protagonist she depicted in her first released tale, "Death of a touring Salesman," to the reflective widow she defined in her final novel, The Optimist's Daughter, Eudora Welty wrote realistically in regards to the shadows and radiance of affection. In a meticulous exploration of this subject matter, Sally Wolff combines new readings of Welty's fiction with contextual info and heritage drawn from a nineteen-year friendship with Welty.

A universal picture in a lot of Welty's fiction, the rose has commonly symbolized love in literature. Wolff argues that the darkish rose-from the peak of its brilliance to the top of its life-serves as an apt metaphor for the dichotomies Welty provides, both suggestive of attractiveness and unhappiness, in addition to the comedian, tragic, and mysterious characteristics of affection. whereas a few of Welty's characters look autobiographical-a daughter remembering her mom and dad' marriage or a broodingly hopeful member of a giant relatives wedding-at instances Welty analyzes from a distance the dynamics of profitable and afflicted loving relationships. even though Welty skilled love a number of instances in the course of her existence, she by no means married, and Wolff argues that this vantage element allowed Welty to jot down from an aim point of view in her fiction concerning the diverse dimensions of affection.

A darkish Rose explores a number of texts to check Welty's nuanced and complicated portrayals of affection. even though love in Welty's fiction fails, wears skinny, or even faces death-it continues to be a necessary strength in her characters' lives.
