Joel Chandler Harris by R. Bruce Bickley( Book )

"This biography and critical study reconstructs Harris's life and career from his humble origins as an illegitimate child and plantation - newspaper printer's devil through his years in Macon, Forsyth, Savannah, and Atlanta. When Harris dies in 1908, his national and international popularity rivaled his friend Mark Twain's. A psychologically complex person, Harris became an accomplished Southern local colorist who left multiple legacies as an American humorist, folklorist, New South journalist, children's writer, and author. He helped make the Old South New."--Back cover

"Nights with Uncle Remus gathers seventy-one of Joel Chandler Harris's most popular stories of the Antebellum South, including the classic trickster tales of Brer Rabbit, creation myths, Sea Island legends, chilling ghost stories, and the indispensable "The Moon in the Mill-Pond." Told through the distinctive voices of four slave storytellers, these anthropomorphic tales have not only created cultural icons like the "Tar Baby," but have inspired writers from Mark Twain to William Faulkner, Zora Neal Hurston to Toni Morrison, and helped revolutionize modern children's literature and folktale collecting."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
