A Curtain of Green, This story's gardener, like the writer, confronts the dark irrationality of human experience and attempts to deal with that irrationality. Larkin has seen her husband killed by a falling chinaberry tree and has realized that her love could not protect him.
She sequesters herself in her garden, and the only townsfolk who are mentioned, besides her and her Negro gardener Jamie, are the neighbor women who sit in the windows of their houses waiting for rain in the afternoons and watching Mrs Larkin.
In the depths of her grief, she ventures deeper and deeper into gardening, becoming "over-vigorous, disreputable, and heedless" in the eyes of her neighbors.
Larkin seeks not Chestina's "well designed garden plot," but seeks "to allow an over-flowering"; in the process, she finds that the garden provides not solace but immersion in a hostile force.
She has never directly expressed her grief over the loss of her husband, but it rises to a climax of urgency on one afternoon in the white heat before the daily rainstorm. Raising her hoe above him, she finds herself on the brink of killing Jamey; the young black man, as he works in the garden with her.
Was it not possible to compensate? However, suddenly the rain begins to fall, her anger and grief dissolve in tenderness and she collapses in a faint among the flowers and realizes he seems to be caught up in "a teasing, innocent, flickering and beautiful vision.
Bur at day's end, she drops the hoe she had contemplated using as a weapon, and she finds release in the afternoon rain and m the garden's "quiet arcade of identity.
Momentarily, at least, she accepts both nature's mystery and its beauty. Larkin's isolation from her community, her grief, her venturing into the garden, and her discovery of some consolation there draw in oblique ways upon Chestina's own experience. Larkin's love, which like Chestina's seeks to but cannot protect her beloved, sprang in part from a key source of tension between Welty and her mother-their efforts to protect each other- but the story ultimately seems to find its roots in the depth of Chessie's love for her husband, in her abiding grief at his loss i I grief that loomed over a concerned daughter, in her intellectual and creative toughness, and in her refusal to retreat into a mindlessly conventional consolation.At the same time, he seems to symbolize the natural world, in that he is killed and reborn as part of a cycle.
