Description

The mountain South thrives on centuries-old traditions, a fact widely recognized to readers of Appalachian literature, which is without doubt one of the richest and such a lot evocative of any region within the country. This anthology collects 225 poems by 37 poets of Southern Appalachia, from James Still and Louise McNeill to Robert Morgan, Fred Chappell and Charles Wright. Embracing the region’s robust narrative tradition, dialect and syntax, the gathering also includes poems that redefine the terms of isolation, as technological change and heightened tourism bring the old and new tactics into greater tension. Autobiographical essays introduce each and every poet and his or her work. Notes provide an explanation for colloquial, difficult to understand, or historical references appearing within the poems.
