Abstract:

Born in Clinton, Mississippi, Barry Hannah has been a major force in southern literature since the 1970 publication of his first novel, Geronimo Rex, which won the Bellman Foundation Award in fiction. It was followed by his first collection of stories, Airships (1978), winner of the prestigious Arnold Gringrich Short Fiction Award, and the acclaimed novel Ray (1980). The honesty of Hannah's vision and his varied narrative voices have won him comparison to Walker Percy, William Faulkner, Eudora Welty, and Flannery O'Connor. One of the South's most original writers, Hannah explores the human psyche; he may write primarily about his experiences in the South, but his experiments with prose are not restricted to region.

In this first full-length critical study of Hannah's works--six novels and two volumes of short stories--Mark Jay Charney deftly explores Hannah's connections with southern writers like Faulkner and Welty by examining both his progression as a fiction writer and his experiments with language, voice, and form. Expertly combining biographical information with critical analysis, Charney correlates Hannah's literary themes and techniques with the influences shaping his life.

. The book is organized chronologically to illustrate Hannah's growing preoccupation with unconventional narrative form and to delineate the thematic shift from violence and isolation to peaceful alternatives and community acceptance. This book is a most welcome introduction to the works of a writer who promises to remain one of South's most startling and iconoclastic voices.
