I'll Take My Stand: The South and the Agrarian Tradition / Edition 5by Louis D. Rubin, Virginia Rock, Twelve Southerners
Pub. Date: 10/28/1977
Publisher: Louisiana State University Press
First published in 1930, the essays in this manifesto constitute one of the outstanding cultural documents in history of the South. In it, twelve southerners-many of whom later became leading poets, novelists, and literary critics-defended individualism against the trend of baseless conformity in an increasingly mechanized and dehumanized society. As Louis Rubin notes in his new introduction, what they had to say then has an even greater significance today.
