The Interior Castle - the Art and Life of Jean Stafford

Hulbert, Ann

From her childhood in Colorado, through the twists and turns of American Literature during the mid twentieth century, Jean Stafford is worth remembering, if nothing else, as the author of 'The Mountain Lion'.

Her stories with titles like 'Children Are Bored on Sunday' were published in 'The New Yorker' and honoured in 1970 with a Pulitzer Prize.

Stafford's disenchanted vision started with her father's loss of fortune and growing up in a boarding house. After joining the Southern Critics, she married poet Robert Lovell, struggled with Catholicism, confronted domestic violence, and always and forever, searched for a safe place to be – an interior castle.
