The Jilting Of Granny Weatherall
?The Jilting of Granny Weatherall?
Katherine Anne Porter lived during a rough time in the world, which included both of the world wars and the Great Depression. She was born in Indian Creek, Texas in 1890 and was a descendant of Daniel Boone. She considered that the better part of her education came from five authors, they were Henry James, T. S. Elliot, Ezra Pound, James Joyce, and W. B. Yeats. She began writing when she was young but was not able to publish anything until she was forty; at this time she published Maria Concepcion. After that, she produced several other important works, however she only wrote one novel, Ship of Fools. Most of her stories took place in the South and showed characters in relationships with family. They generally took place at pivotal moments in the characters lives and included some type of flashback for the characters. This is true of The Jilting of Granny Weatherall too.
Some scientists and memory experts believe that every experience is recorded in the mind. People who had a near death experience have said that they saw their life pass before them. This is also part of many religions as the ?final judgment?.
