Description The Kentucky Anthology de Wade Hall:

For over two hundred years, Kentucky has inspired many of the nation's finest writers, both natives of the Bluegrass State and outsiders who were entranced by its rich natural wonders and culture. Now, for the first time, celebrated Kentucky literary historian Wade Hall has assembled a comprehensive collection of writings embodying the hopes, concerns, and aspirations that have made the state unique and yet so typically American. Hunters, soldiers, adventures, tourists, farmers, lawyers, preachers, educators, journalists, historians, playwrights, poets, and novelists offer readers an unparalleled literary tour of Kentucky. Early descriptive and political writings by such figures as George Rogers Clark, John James Audubon, and Henry Clay give way to the flourishing body of poetry and fiction by such authors as John Fox Jr, Irvin S Cobb, James Lane Allen, Elizabeth Madox Roberts, and Robert Penn Warren. The concerns of contemporary nationally known Kentucky writers Bobbie Ann Mason, Silas House, Sena Jeter Naslund, Sue Grafton, Frank X Walker, Barbara Kingsolver, and Maurice Manning center on the struggle to reconcile the place they call home with an increasingly global community. "The Kentucky Anthology" is the ultimate celebration of the state's literary heritage, which Wendell Berry once described as "local life aware of itself." Wade Hall is emeritus professor of English at Bellarmine University and served as the editor of the Kentucky Poetry Review for more than fifteen years. The author or editor of numerous books, including Conecuh People: Words of Life from the Alabama Black Belt and Passing for Black: The Life and Careers of Mae Street Kid, Hall lives in Louisville, Kentucky.
