St. Charles Hotel, in New Orleans, brings you to and across Canal Street, the central avenue of the city, and to that comer where the flower-women sit at the inner and outer edges of the arcaded sidewalk, and make the air sweet with their fragrant merchandise.

One of the greatest and most celebrated Southern writers of his day, George Washington Cable (1844-1925) helped to lead the local colorist movement of the late 1800s with his pioneering use of dialect and his skill with the short story form. A Southern reformist, Cable wrote faithful portrayals of Creoles and their culture that depict the Creole way of life during the transitory post-Civil War period.
Originally published in 1879, Old Creole Days catapulted Cable to national recognition. The stories within reflect the everyday life of the New Orleans Creoles through a mixture of humor and the unique Creole patois. Cable's best-known work, Old Creole Days includes such famous stories as "Posson Jone'," "Jean-ah Poquelin," and "Madame Dï¿½licieuse," tales that are alive with the sounds and scenes of nineteenth-century New Orleans.About the Author:
