Title: Freeze-Frame: Time And Vision In Three Early Welty Stories
Author: Coots, Barbara L
Abstract: Eudora Welty's early short stories provide a fitting career transition from photographer to writer . In particular , her creative figuration of time - -enriched by her employment of photographic vision - -graces her earliest collection , <em >A Curtain of Green . < /em > In this paper , I apply a critical approach based on the narrative theory of time by Paul Ricoeur to discover meaning in three of those stories : "A Curtain of Green ," "The Key ," and "A Memory ." Using Ricoeur's proposition of three mimetic stages - -prefiguration , configuration , and refiguration - -and taking the liberty to peer through the camera lens , I identify a unifying theme of feminine emergence that finds its definition within Welty's stop -action narrative style .
