American Southern Writers focuses on the groundbreaking, seminal works of 20th-century writers from the American south who have left a deep mark on the ways we imagine American culture and identity: William Faulkner, Zora Neale Hurston, Richard Wright, Carson McCullers, Flannery O’Connor, and Eudora Welty. Close attention to how a work’s rhetoric and style affects its presentation of basic motifs (poverty, sexuality, race, religion, rural and small-town life) and of the cultural and social topography of the south.
