About the Author

HUGH RUPPERSBURG is Emeritus University Professor of English at the University of Georgia. He is the literature section editor of the New Georgia Encyclopedia.


The first volume (LJ 11/1/92) of this projected three-volume anthology of Georgia's literary heritage focused on fiction; now Ruppersburg (English, Univ. of Georgia) concentrates on a representative sample of the rich nonfiction writings of native Georgians or long-term residents. Among the writers appearing here are James Oglethorpe, Henry Grady, Erskine Caldwell, Martin Luther King Jr., Alice Walker, and Jimmy Carter. Through letters, diaries, narrative, and essays, the collection explores key themes in Southern life as they have unfolded within the context of Georgia's growth and development for over two centuries. Poignant recollections and the writings of Cherokee and Creek Indians are featured. An informative essay by the editor precedes each part, and a biographical notes section falls at the end. Although one could quibble with the selection, this is a carefully edited volume that will provide engrossing reading for both the scholar and general reader of Georgia and Southern literary history.-Charles C. Hay III, Eastern Kentucky Univ. Archives, Richmond

"An impressive collection of Georgia writers that will be hard to equal for quality of selection, concise introductions, and completeness."--"Atlanta Journal-Constitution"
