  1. shery


    Hi Teacher,

    I have difficulty understanding the first sentence of the following passage.

    Would you please do me a favor?

    [Carson McCuller never reworte the front pages to brand them novels.] Althugh she was concerned about the barbarism of racism in her native South, her short stories and novels were allegorical, yet crystalline.

    Thanks a lot.

    Re: meaning

    It isn't very clear to me from the text there. Could you supply more context? It sounds as if she didn't try to hard-sell her books as novels.

    Re: meaning

    I think it means that McCuller did not fictionalize real current events and make novels out of them.
