Eudora Welty and Walker Percy : the concept of home in their lives and literature by Marion Montgomery ( Book )
7 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 398 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Eudora Welty and Walker Percy were very different writers. But the two friends were both from the Deep South and intensely interested in the relation of place to their fiction. This work explores in each the concept of home, the locale where one discovers oneself intellectually and finds comfort." "The differences between Welty and Percy and their fiction are revealed in the habits of their lives. Welty spent her life in Jackson, Mississippi, and was very much a member of the community. Percy was a wanderer who finally settled in Covington, Louisiana, because it was, to him, a "noplace." The author asserts that Percy envied Welty and her stability in Jackson and, though he was and is labeled a "Southern writer," Percy struggled to connect himself to any place at any moment."--Jacket

Hillbilly Thomist : Flannery O'Connor, St. Thomas, and the limits of art by Marion Montgomery ( Book )
6 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 220 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This analysis of O'Connor's works lays to rest the author's own self-deprecating description of herself as a "hillbilly" Thomist. Instead we see in O'Connor's writing a highly sophisticated mind, an in-convenience to the critics who dismiss her as anti-intellectual."--Provided by publisher

"In this work, a self-proclaimed third-generation Fugitive-Agrarian concentrates on the history and mystery of nature. The author supports the recovery of fundamental principles required for the economic, social and political health of our communities. He explores Fugitive-Agrarian concepts of nature, history, science, industry, person, family and community. His discussion focuses particular attention on John Crowe Ransom and Allen Tate and how they diverged in their philosophies of intellect and the written word."--BOOK JACKET
