What is the proper texture for stuffing/dressing? Should it be baked covered or uncovered?

A lot of recipes say to bake stuffing for an hour but that seems like too long a time? The recipes I've read don't say whether it should be covered or uncovered. It just says bake for one hour.

Also, why does the bread have to be dried out only to have several cups of chicken stock/liquid dumped back on it to turn it back to mush? Is that the reason for the long baking time? Also what is the reason for adding eggs?

First time on stuffing duty for Thanksgiving! What kind of bread should I use?

I'm really confused! :)
