Abstract:

"Placing the South offers a selection of work published between 1985 and 2005 by one of the most insightful historians and literary critics of the South. The pieces seek to situate the South in a variety of contexts and offer a compelling defense of what Anthony Appiah has called "rooted cosmopolitanism." This is a mode of understanding based on respect for what is local and an awareness that regionalism is not enough. Hybridity, in both culture and literature, is inescapable and desirable." "The first section of the book ("Placing") contains three comparative analyses that look at how regionalism has recently been conceptualized globally, how the modern South has acquired pertinence for those outside the United States, and how the relationship between Britain and the South has worked." "The second section ("Ideologies") scrutinizes political ideas - freedom, imperialism, nationalism, racial ideology - which have transformed American discourse. The third section ("Forms") examines genre and how the South has been constructed and reconstructed by such literary forms as autobiography, biography, history, and literary history. The final section ("Writers") contains critical appreciations of political thinkers, novelists, poets, critics, historians, and sociologists important to southern intellectual life. Taken together, the essays offer a robust analysis of a dynamic region."--Jacket.
