Southern Writers in the Modern World
Donald Davidson (Autor)
DescripciónOne of the most important of the Southern magazines in the 1920s was The Fugitive , a magazine of verse and brief commentaries on literature in general. Among its contributors were John Crowe Ransom, Allen Tate, Robert Penn Warren, Donald Davidson, and Merrill Moore. Publication began in April 1922 and ended in December 1925. Soon thereafter, the Fugitive writers and some others became profoundly concerned with the materialism of American life and its effect upon the South. The group became known as Agrarians. Their thinking and discussion culminated in a symposium, I'll Take My Stand , published in 1930.
In his first two lectures Davidson describes the underlying nature and aims of the Fugitive and Agrarian movements. He brings to the discussion his intimate and thorough knowledge of Southern life and letters. The third lecture deals with the place of the writer in the modern university, posing the questions of whether the writer needs the university and whether the university needs or wants the writer.
