Welty Society is calling for papers to be delivered at its panel “Disclosing
the Secret in Eudora Weltys Fiction and Photography” at the American
Literature Association Conference in Boston May 22-25, 2003.
“The future story writer in the child
I was must have taken unconscious note and stored it away then; one secret is
liable to be revealed in the place of another that is harder to tell, and the
substitute secret when nakedly exposed is often the more appalling.”
—Eudora Welty, “Listening,”
One Writers Beginnings
The topic refers to several ideas of the secret:
to Weltys patterns of revealing and exposing while holding back and
to her interest in revelation of the unspoken and to the images repeatedly
associated with the revelation
to her discussions of and uses of mystery
to specific secrets in specific fictions and/or the photography.
