Short-story writer noted for her distinctive prose style with many overtones of poetry. Her delicate stories, focused upon psychological conflicts, have an obliqueness of narration and a subtlety of observation that reveal the influence of Anton Chekhow. She, in turn, had much influnece on the development of the short story as a form of literature. - Merriam-Webster's Encyclopedia of Literature
