9781518878381: A Candle of Understanding

One rarely comes across a sweeter, more candid and straightforward story than “A Candle of Understanding” by Elizabeth Bisland. It is a tale of the development of a fine character from childhood to mature womanhood, and it never fails to amuse in the telling of even trivial incidents of domestic routine, while it furnishes a true and touching picture of life in Louisiana after the war and about the time of the invasion of the carpet-baggers. In the midst of pathos it sparkles with vivacious accounts of the post-bellum condition of the ex-master and the freedmen and women. Although the story is told in the first person, there is no egotism in it, and the personality of the narrator is quaintly original and delightfully honest.

The Writer: A Monthly Magazine for Literary Workers, Vol. 16 [1903]
