The snare a novel by Elizabeth Spencer( file )
1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 9 libraries worldwide
It is well known that New Orleans has its dark underside as well as its glowing visible delights. The journey one intelligent, attractive, but psychically driven girl makes through the city's hidden labyrinth is the element that impels this riveting novel. In crisscrossing the city from the secure world of home in the Garden District to the titillating world of the Vieux Carre, she risks physical and psychological peril. As she explores life on the other side, she becomes engulfed in the vortex of evil. In The Snare one of America's most highly acclaimed fiction writers explores the mystery of place and the mystifying duality of the human wish, with its craving for both dark and light. This is a book for readers of choice writing and for those who seek a way to express and comprehend the ineffable sense of excitement aroused by the sinister, exotic beauty of New Orleans

The Past Is Not Dead is a collection of twenty-one literary and historical essays that will mark the 50th anniversary of the Southern Quarterly, one of the oldest scholarly journals (founded in 1962) dedicated to southern studies. Like its companion volume, Personal Souths, The Past Is Not Dead features the best of the work published in the journal. Essays represent every decade of the journal's history, from the 1960s to the 2000s. Topics covered range from historical essays on the French and Indian War, the New Deal, and Emmett Till's influence on the Black Panther Party to literary figures including William Faulkner, Robert Penn Warren, Richard Wright, Eurdora Welty and Carson McCullers. Important regional subjects like the Natchez Trace, the Yazoo Basin, the Choctaw Indians, and Mississippi blues are given special attention. Contributors range from noted literary critics such as Margaret Walker Alexander, Virginia Spencer Carr, Susan V. Donaldson, James Justus, and Willie Morris to scholars of African-American studies such as Robert L. Hall and Manning Marble and historians including John Ray Skates, Martha Swain, and Randy Sparks. Collectively, the essays in this volume enrich and illuminate our understanding of Southern history, literature, and culture
