A Study of the Space Images in the Golden Apples



Eudora Welty is one of the most representative Southern American writers. The Golden Apples is her 1949 short-story sequence. In this book, Welty gives readers a vivid picture of Southern American society in the first half of the 20th century. Being a typical Southern American writer, Welty has a strong sense of place. As a novelist with strong sense of place and a photographer, Welty makes full use of space images in The Golden Apples and many of her works. In this essay, the space theory is used to analyze the implications of space images in The Golden Apples. By analyzing the space images in Welty’s works, the essay tries to further explore Welty’s sense of place, and interpret Southern American culture from the spatial perspective.
