Abstract

Powerhouse, a story in Eudora Welty's first collection, A Curtain of Green, illustrates her methods and themes. Many of the stories employ the grotesque and several of them contain the element of fantasy; Powerhouse is representattive of the collection in these respects, but greater significance lies in its expression of thematic ideas treated in all of her early work. For Miss Welty there are two great mysteries, the mysteries of the self and of the outer world.
