Historical Note Katherine Anne Porter was one of the most brilliant practitioners of the art of the short story. Her literary reputation rests on the stories in her Collected Stories rather than on her best-selling novel Ship of Fools When her mother died in Marchher father moved the four surviving children from his farm in the central Texas community of Indian Creek to his mother's home in Kyle, just south of Austin, the state capital.
The grandmother, Catharine Ann Porter, served as a mother to Harrison's children until her death in October Catharine Ann Porter was an important influence on her granddaughter Callie, who adopted her name in early adulthood with only a slight orthographical change.
The death of the grandmother left the family emotionally and financially adrift. AboutHarrison Porter relocated his family to San Antonio, where the three oldest children experienced the last of their formal education.
Porter's older brother Paul matriculated at a military academy, and Callie and her older sister Gay attended the Thomas School, an excellent non-sectarian Christian private girls' school. Equipped with the training they received there, Porter and her older sister gave lessons in "music, physical culture and dramatic reading" in a rented room in Victoria, Texas, the family's next residence.
Although she later taught at colleges and universities, she never had any formal higher education. She acquired wide-ranging knowledge through a lifetime of extensive reading on varied topics; she often annotated her books and journals as she read them, evidence of which survives in her personal library.
This first of her marriages, at nine years, had the longest duration. The couple first lived in Louisiana, then moved to Houston and later Corpus Christi.
Inher husband's work-related absences allowed her more time for creativity, and she began writing more of the poems and short stories she had been composing since childhood.
This activity resulted in her first published poem, "Texas by the Gulf of Mexico," printed that year in a trade journal to which her husband subscribed. Byit became apparent that the marriage was not working. Porter set out for Chicago hoping to find employment in motion pictures, though she later claimed that her plan was to work for a newspaper.
She was a beautiful young woman, full of self-confidence, and, though she appeared in at least two movies for the Essanay Company, she returned to Texas within six months. She obtained a divorce from Koontz in June and shortly thereafter discovered that she had contracted tuberculosis.
Between andPorter married and was divorced twice. In SeptemberPorter became a journalist for the Fort Worth Critic thanks to the help of friend Kitty Crawford, whom she had met while both of them were hospitalized in a sanitorium.
Soon after her arrival in Denver, Porter very nearly died in the influenza epidemic that ravaged the country at that time.The book presents a detailed analysis of how the Talmud describes the destruction of the Second Temple, a rich subject, but the book is about much more than that.
