Beginnings (2 of 2)


The Tudor Revival-style house features high ceilings and a central stairwell filled with light from the upstairs hall windows. Tall trees shade the house.

In this house Welty entertained her family, her many Jackson friends, and visiting friends from all over the world.

And it was to this house that Welty, a passionate traveler, always returned to create her novels and short stories on what she called "fiction's only theme": human life.

A writer cannot escape his material; that is, he cannot escape where and when he was born. But his theme he chooses.
