Criticism about Sarah Orne Jewett

Sarah Orne Jewett & the Ghost Story
“Inasmuch as the story is connected to Sarah’s classic Firs, for which the majority of associated tales were already gathered, by Willa Cather, as early as 1919, the prejudice against supernatural literature, which Sarah experienced during her career, would seem indeed to be at the heart of that one story’s long neglect. Her several other weird tales, lacking that special connection with so important a work as Firs, have been afforded even less of a chance of achieving recognition.”
