Abstract/Description: "The purpose of this paper is to present the life of Caroline Gordon in relation to her works and to give a critical evaluation of her works as found in contemporary reviews. The procedure followed in writing the paper was first to seek out all the novels, short stories, and critical articles written by Miss Gordon and the articles written about her. Tools that were useful in compiling the list were Essay and General Literature Index, Fiction Catalog, International Index to Periodicals, Reader's Guide to Periodical Literature, and Short Story Index. Next all of the works of Caroline Gordon and all of the articles written about her works that were available were read. Critical reviews of her writings were traced through Book Review Digest and the original reviews were examined with care. Chapter I gives a sketch of Caroline Gordon's life; Chapter II discusses the novels of Miss Gordon; and Chapter III discusses her short stories and critical articles. A brief summary evaluates her works as adjudged by critics; and a bibliography of sources consulted concludes the paper"--Introduction.
