This thesis is a novella that follows a 1952 white Mississippi family through a pair of concurrent stories which eventually merge. Written in a Southern Gothic style, this novella utilizes several perspectives, violent scenes, and depictions of familial tension to explore the themes of overt and covert racism, femininity, motherhood, ableism, Southern identity, and myth within mid-twentieth century Southern culture.
