CRITICAL ANALYSIS VS. STORY


“Since analysis has to travel backward, the path it goes is an ever-narrowing one, whose goal is the vanishing point, beyond which only ‘influences’ lie. But the writer of the story, bound in the opposite direction, works into the open. The choices multiply, become more complicated and with more hanging on them, as with everything else that has a life and moves.” Eudora Welty, The Eye of the Story (109-110)
