A Diary From Dixie

Mary Boykin Miller Chesnut's A Diary from Dixie is a fiery account of her experiences and struggles during the Civil War. It was published in 1905, nineteen years after her death, but she had spent many years revising and editing her Civil War diary during the 1880s in preparation for publication. It has been republished twice, once in 1949 and, under the title Mary Chesnut's Civil War, in 1981. The diary opens on the day Chesnut learns Lincoln had been elected, and covers the turmoil leading up to and during the Civil War, closing with a final entry on August 2, 1865. Chesnut accompanied her husband, James Chesnut, Jr., on many of his military operations and spent time in Charleston, South Carolina; Montgomery, Alabama; Richmond, Virginia; Flat Rock, North Carolina; and many other Southern towns. She describes her interview with Robert E. Lee, discusses her perceptions of Jefferson Davis, and tells countless stories of her interactions with Southern politicians, revealing some of their more private concerns and interests. In her diary, Chesnut adeptly balances her personal traumas with the larger struggles the South faced during the Civil War. A Diary from Dixie is often recognized as one of the most important Southern literary works of the nineteenth century.

Cane

"[Cane] has been reverberating in me to an astonishing degree. I love it passionately; could not possibly exit without it." ? Alice Walker "A breakthrough in prose and poetical writing ?. This book should be on all readers' and writers' desks and in their minds." ? Maya Angelou Hailed by critics for its literary experimentation and vivid portrayal of African-American characters and culture, Cane represents one of the earliest expressions of the Harlem Renaissance. Combining poetry, drama, and storytelling, it contrasts life in an African-American community in the rural South with that of the urban North. Author Jean Toomer (1894?1967) drew upon his experiences as a teacher in rural Georgia to create a variety of Southern psychological realism that ranks alongside the best works of William Faulkner. The book's three-part structure, ranging from South to North and back again, is united by its focus on the lives of African-American men and women in a world of bigotry, violence, passion, and tenderness.
