Abstract:

"Novelist, journalist, film critic, poet, and activist James Agee (1909-1955) produced an impressive array of literary works spanning three decades. His poems, novels, essays, works of criticism, and screenplays gave profound social insights into the Depression-ridden 1930s and war-torn 1940s, and scholars study and debate his work to this day. Agee, a Tennessee native, is arguably the most important literary figure from the state." "James Agee Rediscovered, edited by Michael A. Lofaro and Hugh Davis, gives a new and unique perspective on this prolific writer. With this book, the editors have put together an untarnished and unfettered collection of previously unpublished manuscripts of one of America's most intriguing authors. Featuring various drafts and fragments of Agee's manuscripts from University of Tennessee Special Collections, the Ransom Center at the University of Texas, and the James Agee Trust, this book reveals the inner thoughts and creative sensibilities of an eclectic writer." "James Agee Rediscovered consists of journal entries, drafts of original material, and heretofore undiscovered literary works, as well as nineteen previously unpublished photos by Walker Evans."--BOOK JACKET.
