              The Life Uncovered in A Lonely, Hard Fishing Village. The Country of the Pointed Firs is an 1896 short story sequence by Sarah Orne Jewett which is considered by some literary critics to be her finest work. Henry James described it as her beautiful little quantum of achievement. ...Ursula K. Le Guin praises its quietly powerful rhythms. Because it is loosely structured, many critics view the book not as a novel, but a series of sketches; however, its structure is unified through both setting and theme. The novel can be read as a study of the effects of isolation and hardship experienced by the inhabitants of the decaying fishing villages along the Maine coast. Sarah Orne Jewett, who wrote the book when she was 47, was largely responsible for popularizing the regionalism genre with her sketches of the fictional Maine fishing village of Dunnet Landing. Like Jewett, the narrator is a woman, a writer, unattached, genteel in demeanor, feisty and zealously protective of her time to write.

              It was not, of course, all good talk, and we suffered then, as now, from the a priori critic. Just as nowadays he goes about declaring that the work of such-and-such a dramatist is all very amusing and delightful, but it isn't a Play, so we' had a great deal of talk about the sho...rt story, and found ourselves measured by all kinds of arbitrary standards. There was a tendency to treat the short story as though it was as definable a form as the sonnet, instead of being just exactly what any one of courage and imagination can get told in twenty minutes' reading or so. It was either Mr. Edward Garnett or Mr. George Moore in a violently anti-Kipling mood who invented the distinction between the short story and the anecdote. The short story was Maupassant; the anecdote was damnable. It was a quite infernal comment in its way, because it permitted no defence. Fools caught it up and used it freely.

              A forgotten nineteenth-century classic novel about a young woman torn between her passion for medicine and what society expects of her. Bright, vivacious, and wild as a hawk, Nan Prince is a young child when she is adopted by the local general practitioner, Dr. Leslie, upon the d...eath of her elderly aunt. Dr. Leslie encourages Nan's curiosity and indulges her innate interest in medicine, despite the opposition and skepticism of their small Maine town. As Nan grows up, her determination to become a doctor sets her apart from other children. Once Nan departs for medical school, she is invited to spend the summer in Dunport with Miss Prince, her wealthy but mysterious aunt. Nan quickly wins over the smart society of Dunport, though her new friends are all amazed and scandalized by the thought of a young, attractive woman becoming a physician. But when Nan falls in love with a handsome and clever lawyer, she faces a crossroads: Will she pursue medicine, her first love, or abandon it for the rewards of matrimony?
