Is southern poetry southerner than southern fiction?

William Harmon

Abstract


Probably with disdain and possibly even with contempt, we canlook back to our counterparts of a century ago and say, "Shame onyou! Two of the greatest poets of your age have just died — Dickinsonin 1886 and Hopkins in 1889 — and who among you knew a thingabout either of them? Who among the smug intelligentsia gave themthe least encouragement? People: wake up and smell the genius!"
