Summary: Though the flowering of realistic and local-color writing during the first two decades of the twentieth century was a sign of things to come, the period between the two world wars was a crucial one for the South's literary development: a literary revival in Richmond came to fruition; at Vanderbilt University a group of young men produced The Fugitive, a remarkable magazine that published some of the century's best verse in its brief run; and the publication and widespread recognition of Faulkner (among others) inaugurated the great flood of southern writing that was to follow in novels, short stories, poetry, and plays. The author provides an account of southern American literature since 1900, paying attention to both the cultural and the historical context of the works and authors discussed.
