"With Colleen Dewhurst in the lead role of Miss Amelia, Edward Albee's adaptation of Carson McCullers's most famous novella had its Broadway debut at the Martin Beck Theater on October 30, 1963. The play, startlingly frank in its depiction of grotesque people and bizarre situations in the Deep South, drew raves." "This modern Southern Gothic play combines the gifts of McCullers and Albee to give us an unforgettably dark love triangle among Miss Amelia, cafe-owner; her estranged husband Marvin Macy; and her cousin Lymon."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Seminar paper from the year 2006 in the subject American Studies - Literature, grade: 1.0, Dresden Technical University (Institut fur Anglistik/Amerikanistik), course: Images of the American South, 22 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: This paper is going to examine how the southern-born writer Carson McCullers creates the lonely picture of an individual living in hopeless spiritual isolation in a southern town. The South used to be a rural area with its own distinctive culture and a "strong folk tradition, preserved mainly through music and language" (Forkner 91). It will be discussed how this image had to give way to the new reality of the South by the time of the 1940s. It had turned into an interchangeable urbanized society which excluded the individual which did not correspond to southern norms. Furthermore, by analyzing the main characters of The Ballad of the Sad Cafe, the paper points out the unique dreariness of McCullers' visions, looking for reasons in her childhood as well as in her adult life. Focusing on her work The Ballad of the Sad Cafe, the paper underlines that McCullers was always questioning the national identity of 20th century America in general, and the transforming southern society in particular. Further on, it discusses the crucial difference between Carson McCullers' and William Faulkner, who is known as the most recognized writer of her time. By interpreting the novelette The Ballad of the Sad Cafe, the paper is going to highlight the topic McCullers was most concerned about: The spiritual isolation of the individual. An isolation which is deeply rooted within a person who does not fit into the narrow-minded and prefabricated picture of the stereotypical southern society. Finally, my paper emphasizes Carson McCullers' concern with gender and behavioral concepts in the early 20th century, which she turned upside down in order to uncover the artificiality of the southern myth and its rigid moral conceptions.

In one volume, the complete short fiction of the author of The Heart Is a Lonely Hunter, including her two most renowned novellas. Carson McCullers—novelist, dramatist, poet—was at the peak of her powers as a writer of short fiction. Here are nineteen stories that explore her signature themes including loneliness in marriage and the tragicomedy of life in the South. Included in this volume are “The Member of the Wedding” and “The Ballad of the Sad Café,” novellas that Tennessee Williams judged to be “assuredly among the masterpieces of our language.” “McCullers patented the Southern gothic genre that embraces grotesque, morbid characters with such pervading themes as unrequited love and wounded adolescence. Largely set in the South and richly autobiographical, her writings have endured because of their great power and originality.” —Library Journal
