AUTHOR

Porter, Katherine Anne

SUMMARY

"Miss Porter tends to write a story by sending the mind of a character to trouble the past, turning facts into myths and myths into mythologies; then to return, freighted and ready....In stories of this pattern, the characters are normally motionless, like statues: their memories move with their desires, but these are the only movements....In Miss Porter's best stories the past is so rich that it suffuses the present and often smothers it, and even when there is nothing more there is enough. But this means that her characters are utterly dependent upon the past for their development."Porter, Katherine Anne is the author of 'Collected Stories of Katherine Anne Porter', published 1979 under ISBN 9780156188760 and ISBN 0156188767.
