Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

When The Grandissimes was first published in 1880, the book was criticized for its portrayal of forbidden love and the clash of cultures following the Louisiana Purchase through Reconstruction. Since then, the novel has been considered a masterful critique of racial and social inequality that resonates with readers even today, and Cable's work has been compared to that of writers as varied as Honor� de Balzac, John Kennedy Toole, and Henry James.

One of the greatest and most celebrated Southern writers of his day, George Washington Cable (1844-1925) helped lead the Local Color movement of the late 1800s with his pioneering use of dialect and his skill with the short-story form. A Southern reformist, Cable faithfully depicted the Creole way of life during the transitional post-Civil War period.

About the Author

One of the greatest and most celebrated Southern writers of his day, George Washington Cable (1844-1925) helped lead the local-color movement of the late 1800s with his pioneering use of dialect and his skill in the short-story form. After serving in the Confederate army, he began to write for the New Orleans Picayune. Cable has been called the most important Southern artist working in the late-nineteenth century, as well as the first modern Southern writer. A complete listing of his books published by Pelican is available by request.
