Sarah Orne Jewett

$ 2.99

An important practitioner of American literary regionalism, Sarah Orne Jewett was a novelist, short story writer and poet, whose works are noted for ‘local color’, set against the backdrop of her beloved seacoast of Maine. Her acknowledged masterpiece, ‘The Country of the Pointed Firs’ portrays the isolation and loneliness of a declining seaport town, blended with the unique humour of its people. Her works are sympathetic, yet unsentimental in approach, portraying a nostalgic view of a provincial and rapidly disappearing society, imbued with the naturalism of Gustave Flaubert. This comprehensive eBook presents Jewett’s complete works, with numerous illustrations, rare texts and informative introductions. (Version 1)
