Themes of Conflict in the Nineteenth and Twentieth Century Literature of the American South
2007 0-7734-5375-X
This work consists of an edited collection of twenty essays originally presented at the Conflict in Southern Writing Conference in 2004 seeking to explore the various permutations of conflict as depicted in two centuries of literature by authors from the American South. Also included in this volume are five original interviews with contemporary Southern authors (Wade Hall, Sena Jeter Naslund, Sue Walker, Stephen Cushman, and Betty BayƩ) which bring the collection into the twenty-first century and present the same conflicts addressed in the essays from the viewpoints of the creative writers themselves.
