The Mentor in Milledgeville

“Gordon’s earliest critiques of O’Connor’s work (in 1951-52) coincided with O’Connor’s move to a new home, Andalusia. A landscape of sprawling pastures circled by jagged pines. From her first letter to her last, Gordon told the young writer to expand her use of landscape and nature, to enlarge her fictional settings and reflect O’Connor’s Christian vision of an eternal God.”

from “The Mentor in Milledgeville: Caroline Gordon at Andalusia,” originally published 24 June 2016.
