Eudora Welty and Cleanth Brooks in Jackson - American Literature

Sixth Segment: In response to the question of whether there is a distinctive American kind of fiction, Welty responds that she reads all types, but does not see how you can fail to use what you were born with and born to in your writing. So, in that case, it is an American product, just like an American flower. What you need is the fire and the opportunity and the space to work. Welty thinks of writing as a form of freedom.
