Old Creole Days: A Story of Creole Life (Pelican Pouch Series) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A collection of stories, originally published in 1879, that reflect the Creole way of life during the transitory *post-Civil War period.

Synopsis:

One of the greatest and most celebrated Southern writers of his day, George Washington Cable (1844-1925) helped to lead the local colorist movement of the late 1800s with his pioneering use of dialect and his skill with the short story form. A Southern reformist, Cable wrote faithful portrayals of Creoles and their culture that depict the Creole way of life during the transitory post-Civil War period. Originally published in 1879, Old Creole Days catapulted Cable to national recognition. The stories within reflect the everyday life of the New Orleans Creoles through a mixture of humor and the unique Creole patois. Cable's best-known work, Old Creole Days includes such famous stories as Posson Jone', Jean-ah Poquelin, and Madame Delicieuse, tales that are alive with the sounds and scenes of nineteenth-century New Orleans.
