It is the story of Laura, an idealistic woman, who travels to Mexico from Arizona at the age of twenty-two to assist the Obregón Revolution.This casebook on Flowering Judas addresses Porters ambivalence surrounding her roles as woman and artist and also attests to the profound influence of Mexico upon her work. Readers of this early tale will not be surprised to learn that although Porter was a practicing feminist in her life and her work, she actually eschewed the feminist label.Virginia Spencer Carr brings her own sharply focused biographers eye to the introduction, further illuminating the story and the superb critical essays that it provokes.

The casebook includes the authoritative text of the story itself, Porters own statement regarding the genesis of this highly acclaimed work, an important interview, a collection of significant essays on Flowering Judas and the historical, cultural, and personal milieu from which the tale evolved, a bibliography, and a chronology of Porters life and work.
