|Title||Writing as a woman: Mythology, time, the weaving metaphor and symbolism in Eudora Welty's" The Robber Bridegroom"," The Golden Apples"," Delta Wedding"," Losing Battles", and …|
This dissertation is an attempt to further investigate Eudora Welty''s feminine discourse, a discourse which is in constant dialogue with other women writers and happens to intersect with many of the issues raised by contemporary feminist theorists. Accordingly, Chapter One is an introduction in which Welty is aptly situated in the female traditions of writing and is found to have touched upon many feminine issues raised by later feminist theorists. Also, in this chapter four paradigms are delineated. Therefore, the discussion in the ensuing chapters is based on the emergent paradigms … The first paradigm has to do with Welty''s feminine appropriation of ancient myths and fairy tales; accordingly, the discussion in the second chapter focuses on Welty''s appropriation of the myths and fairy tales in The Robber Bridegroom and The Golden Apples . In both texts, Welty''s heroines refuse to play the victim role inherent in masculine narrative.
