This thorough compendium examines the fiction and nonfiction that centers on the people, spirit, creativity, and customs of the Southern states. Readers learn about Southern terms (Bible Belt, Old South), movements (the New South); dialects (Gullah, Creole, Tidewater), and the oral tradition (Creole bayou lore, folktales, spirituals). They also learn about the enormously gifted critics, literary leaders, and authors associated with the South, including Eudora Welty, Truman Capote, William Faulkner, Alice Walker, Maya Angelou, Patrick Henry, Booker T. Washington, and many others. Illustrated and indexed, this work will prove a useful reference tool for teachers, students, librarians, writers, historians, folklorists, and general readers.
