Irving Howe

Yale University Press

This chapter presents Irving Howe's 1954 review of The Country of the Pointed Firs, a collection of stories that offers a detailed portrait of a seaport on the Maine coast as seen through the eyes of a summer visitor. Written by Sarah Orne Jewett, the book, according to Howe, is set in a “dramatic present that is necessarily somewhat fragile, but it resounds with full echoes of the past.” Howe also considers the book a triumph of style.
