Abstract:

"This is a well-organized, gracefully written account of a significant aspect of Southern fiction, and it contains information and incisive commentary that one can find nowhere else."--Thomas Daniel YoungMany southern writers imagined the South as a qualified dream of Arcady.

The Dream of Arcady examines the work of post-Civil War southern writers who criticize the myth of the South as pastoral paradise. Sooner or later in all their idealized.
