Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
Edited by several of the important scholars in the field, this is the only up-to-date survey that presents Southern literature from its beginnings to the present. Its chapters, covering such subjects as ``Antebellum Fiction'' and ``The Agrarians'' as well as such individuals as Simms and Faulkner, are clearly written and authoritative. Upper-level undergraduates and graduate students will find the book to be particularly useful for orienting themselves in the traditions of this important regional literature. One regrets the decision to exclude bibliographies, but the bibliographic essay that is appended will certainly take readers to the right places. An essential purchase for any library that collects in the area of American literature. Peter Dollard, Alma Coll. Lib., Mich.
