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
