The Country of Pointed Firs and Other Stories (Signet Classics) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A writer comes one summer to Dunnet Landing, a Maine seacoast town, where she follows the lonely inhabitants of once-prosperous coastal towns. Here, lives are molded by the long Maine winters, rock-filled fields and strong resourceful women.

Synopsis:

The Country of the Pointed Firs combines Jewett's classic novella and its four short sequels with nine of her best stories, including five unavailable in any other paperback edition. They illustrate the range of her literary style and exemplify her interest in the position of women in nineteenth-century America. Terry Heller's introduction examines the work within the mainstream of American literature, and detailed annotation, as well as a list of the plant and herb lore to which Jewett makes reference, further illuminate these tales.

Synopsis:

Featuring a new Afterword by Balaam, this collection contains the novel "The Country of Pointed Firs" and several stories in which Jewett explores the world of the lonely inhabitants of once-prosperous towns along Maine's coast. Revised reissue.
