Contemporary Poets, Dramatists, Essayists, and Novelists of the South : A Bio-Bibliographical Sourcebook Hardback
Edited by Michael A. Bain, Joseph M. Flora
From the early 20th century to the present, Southern literary talent has flourished.
The newer poets, dramatists, essayists, and novelists of this region often use their writings to explore the changing social values of the South, while also drawing upon traditional Southern values and culture.
This reference work is a guide to the writings of 50 contemporary Southern poets, dramatists, essayists, and novelists. Many of the authors profiled in this volume have established themselves as writers of lasting significance.
However, the book also profiles the careers and work of authors who are emerging only now as masters of their art.
Each chapter in this book is devoted to a single author, and arranged alphabetically for the reader's convenience.
Each is written by an expert on the author, and includes a biographical sketch, a discussion of major themes, a survey of criticism, and a bibliography of works by and about the author.
An introductory essay overviews modern Southern writing, and a selected, general bibliography concludes the work.
