The Cambridge Companion to the Literature of the Ameican South (Editor)

This companion maps the dynamic literary landscape of the American South. Pre- and post-Civil War literature, modernist and civil rights fictions as well as writings by immigrants in the “global” South of the late 20th and 21st centuries, these newly commissioned essays from leading scholars explore the region’s established and emergent literary traditions. Touching on poetry, song, drama and screenwriting, key figures such as William Faulkner and Eudora Welty and iconic texts such as Gone with the Wind, chapters investigate how issues of class, poverty, sexuality and regional identity have textured Southern writing across generations. The volume’s rich contextual approach highlights patterns and connections between writers while offering insight into the development of Southern literary criticism, making this companion a valuable guide for students and teachers of American literature, American studies and the history of storytelling in America.
