About the Author:

J. A. Bryant Jr., professor emeritus of English at the University of Kentucky, is the author of Shakespeare and the Uses of Comedy and Hippolyta's View.

Review:

"An encyclopedic review that covers not only such major figures as Walker Percy and William Styron but also considers John Barth as a Southern writer and gives welcome attention to Reynolds Price, Harry Crews, and Cormac McCarthy."―American Literary Scholarship

"With a fresh outlook on individual writers and an infectious enthusiasm, the author traces 'what led up to the South's extraordinary flowering.' . . . Bryant's scope extends well beyond Faulkner to include many other major and even some minor gods in the pantheon, giving this book a compelling comprehensiveness."―Booklist

"Very sensibly organized, very sensible organized, very clearly written, and very humane in its overall approach."―Bowling Green Daily News

"J.A. Bryant has filled the need for such a work in one concise, well-written volume."―Georgia Historical Quarterly

"Bryant has given the many readers of modern southern literature a valuable scholarly and critical work that may well become a classic in its field"―Georgia Historical Quarterly

"A reader can hardly work though this book without being impressed by the number of writers covered."―Kitikon Litterarum

"For the reader interested in a bird's-eye view of the major figures and trends in Southern literature, this work will be a welcome resource."―Publishers Weekly

"An engaging (and staggeringly comprehensive but marvelously succinct) book that quietly but unmistakably takes its stand against two increasingly visible trends in southern literary study."―Sewanee Review

"A keen reminder of novels, stories, and poems that you know you must read or read again."―The Georgia Review

"An exceptional overview of the last hundred years of Southern writing."―Virginia Quarterly Review
