Abstract:

"Harper Lee's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel To Kill a Mockingbird remains one of the most enduring works of southern fiction ever written. Although a literary phenomenon - tens of millions of copies have sold worldwide - there is surprisingly little secondary literature on Lee and her only novel. On Harper Lee: Essays and Reflections is the first collection of original essays on the author and her magnum opus. Written for scholars as well as general readers, On Harper Lee is an accessible collection on one of America's most important novels and its often enigmatic creator. Alice Hall Petry is professor of English at Southern Illinois University, Edwardsville. She is the author of A Genius in His Way: The Art of Cable's Old Creole Days and Understanding Anne Tyler, and the editor of Critical Essays on Kate Chopin".
