Reclaiming the American farmer :
ISBN: 0807131296. OCLC Number: 61130739 Louisiana State University Press,. . "In this stimulating study, [author] views the Southern Renaissance, 1900-1960, from a fresh perspective. Many writers in the South began consciously to create new myths for the region at the start of the twentieth century, and these myths, [author] argues, reframed southern history and culture. Instead of being rooted in the plantation culture that had provided inspiration for nineteenth-century southern writers, the new literature was inspired by "southern folk," the common people who farmed the earth and whose values derived from Jeffersonian agrarianism and democracy."--Book jacket.
