Southern honor : ethics and behavior in the old South by Bertram Wyatt-Brown( Book )

38 editions published between 1982 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,641 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Bertram Wyatt-Brown's wide-ranging re-examination of pre-Civil War Southern culture demonstrates the pervasiveness of the age-old code of honor in many aspects of human relations, from child-rearing habits to criminal justice and lynch law. The author shows that honor was the animating force in the antebellum South, the very keystone of the slave-holding Southern morality." -- back cover

Honor and violence in the Old South by Bertram Wyatt-Brown( Book )

5 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 624 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This reinterpretation of Southern life and custom explores the meaning and expression of the ancient code of honor as whites--both slaveholders and non-slaveholders--applied to their lives. Historian Bertram Wyatt-Brown argues that Southern ethical habits and traditions are the basis of regional distinctiveness and helped to justify the South's most cherished peculiarity: the institution of slavery. Using both literature and anthropology, Wyatt-Brown shows how honor affected family loyalty and community defensiveness. The work begins with a study of Hawthorne's story, "My kinsman, Major Molineux." and ends with an account of an authentic lynching. In between, Wyatt-Brown deals with such topics as childbearing, marital patterns, gentility, legal traditions, duelling, hospitality, slave discipline, lynch-law, and insurrectionary panic.--From publisher description
Southern writers and their worlds( Book )

1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 606 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

These five essays from the Walter Prescott Webb Memorial Lectures explore the many ways Southern writers have shaped and been shaped by their region. Susan A. Eacker explains how South Carolinian essayist and poet Louisa McCord came to believe slavery was necessary and good within a world that would forever be inhabited by violent men and physically (but not intellectually) defenseless women. Christopher Morris examines the relationship between the economic development in the South and the humor of writers such as Augustus B. Longstreet and Johnson Jones Hooper. Bertram Wyatt-Brown discusses the connection between depression and literary creativity. This relationship has had both glorious and tragic consequences for Southern letters - glorious for the many outstanding achievements by Southern writers, tragic for the literature that might have been but for the prolonged depression, drunkenness, and early death met by so many of them

Virginia's Civil War( Book )

6 editions published between 2004 and 2009 in English and held by 279 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The twenty essays collected here explore the Virginia story throughout the Civil War era. Some contributors examine Robert E. Lee and the issues confronting his men, such as soldier morale and religious conversion. Others emphasize the wartime home front - in some cases reexamining its connection with the battlefront - or explore questions of gender, race, or religion. Several essays extend the story into the postwar years and consider various Virginia individuals or groups in the context of the conflict's aftermath. Building on current knowledge, but often contesting conventional thinking, the essays give the most comprehensive view yet of Civil War Virginia, and suggest avenues of inquiry that remain to be explored."--Jacket
