Book Description
The Fugitives were an influential literary group that began at Vanderbilt University in the 1920s. Although the philosophically driven alliance was short-lived, two of its members, John Crowe Ransom and Allen Tate, went on to become influential Southern poets and theorists. In this work, a self-proclaimed third-generation Fugitive-Agrarian concentrates on the history and mystery of nature. The author supports the recovery of fundamental principles required for the economic, social and political health of our communities. He explores Fugitive-Agrarian concepts of nature, history, science, industry, person, family and community. His discussion focuses particular attention on John Crowe Ransom and Allen Tate and how they diverged in their philosophies of intellect and the written word.

Selected Letters of John Gould Fletcher
John Gould Fletcher
155728329X
May 1996
Hardcover
·
 
From Library Journal
A fascinating minor figure, Arkansas-born Fletcher (1886-1950) led two poetic lives: first as an Imagist in England and then as an Agrarian in the United States. This is the last of a seven-volume series of his work that includes a biography, an autobiography, and selected works. Of some 1800 letters, only 137 are represented here, but it is easy to see why: Fletcher was a fussy writer, and his letters do tend to go on. He treated his friends to the kind of trenchant criticism made tolerable by the meticulousness that is one hallmark of true friendship, whereas his enemies bore the special wrath that comes only from someone who has always thought himself right; both sides were subject to tirades against well-meaning fools in general and Ezra Pound in particular. Ultimately, Fletcher's king-sized personality...

The Cultural Politics of the New Criticism
Mark Jancovich
0521416523
August 2003
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
In this book, Mark Jancovich concentrates on the works of three leading American writers - Robert Penn Warren, John Crowe Ransom and Allen Tate - in order to examine the development of the New Criticism during the late 1920s and early 1930s, and its establishment within the academy in the late 1930s and 1940s. This critical movement managed to transform the teaching and study of English through a series of essays published in journals such as the Southern Review and the Kenyon Review. Jancovich argues that the New Criticism was not an example of bourgeois individualism, as previously held, but that it sprang from a critique of modern capitalist society developed by pre-capitalist classes within the American South. In the process, he clarifies the distinctions between the aims of these three Southern poets from those of...
