Editorial Reviews

Review

"This is one of those books that make you want to read more books, make you want to read or reread a whole passel of books by Southern writers for the pure pleasure of hearing the people in them talk."--Philadelphia Inquirer


"[Brooks] has demonstrated once again why he is regarded as one of our most highly competent and engaging scholar-critics. . . . An informatively compact, fluent, scholarly, and edifying inquiry into the most essential tool of the writing trade-language."--Southern Humanities Review


"A powerful argument against the hegemony of formal, standardized English. The Language of the American South is a compelling reflection on the intertwining of a living, multi-layered language, a people, a literature, and a place.”--Dallas News
