The Oxford Handbook of the Literature of the U.S. South

Edited by Fred Hobson and Barbara Ladd

Oxford Handbooks

  • Includes 27 original essays by leading scholars in the field--bringing together contemporary views of the literature of the U.S. South and employing critical tools not traditionally used in approaching Southern literature
  • Examines Native American literature, Latina/o literature, Asian American as well as African American literatures, Caribbean studies, sexuality studies, the relationship of literature to film, and a number of other topics new to the field
  • Challenges earlier views of antebellum Southern literature and questions the assumption that the Southern Renaissance of the 1920s, 1930s, and 1940s was the supreme epoch of Southern expression
