This is an incredible conpendium of *great* Southern writing. The authors and their works are varied, and, unlike other anthologies I've perused, it is not buried under yards of historic (i.e. boring) documents, sermons, and the like. Even the CD is exceptional. I was very disappointed when I learned Norton no longer published this book, however,since I wanted to adopt it for a new class I was developing. I've not found a book I've liked as well since.

Bought this book for a class - I actually really enjoyed reading it! It has a very nice variety of literature and most stories are preceded with a short bio of the author and the context of the provided literature to their lifetime. The only gripe I had with the book is that the pages are very thin (think 'Bible-style paper') so highlighting as I read/studied was impossible. Overall a nice introduction to southern literature.

Southern Literature is a genre I didn't know too much about going into the subject. This book was very useful to my study, although some of the stories include excerpts from novels, and I question some of the choices in excerpts. Overall, this book was enjoyable and I learned a lot about Southern literature from this book.

My youngest daughter - in college - seems very well pleased with this selection... like the professor gave her a choice, right?

Book was at a good price, in perfect new condition and exactly as I had anticipated. Good deal online with prices better than the college bookstore.
