The war the women lived : female voices from the Confederate South by Walter Sullivan( Book )

6 editions published between 1995 and 2003 in English and held by 905 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In The War the Women Lived, Walter Sullivan presents an informal history of the American Civil War in the South as seen through the eyes of the 23 principals whose acutely perceptive reports he has chosen for this book. "Through their memorable voices," George Garrett has written, comes "a vivid and fascinating view ... of those terrible times." The editor has selected 31 narrative sequences that unfold in chronological order. Each selection constitutes a story -- of suffering, courage, daring, patriotism, resignation, faith; and the stories add up to an account of the war as it was lived and endured on the domestic front in the South, from its halcyon and hopeful beginnings in 1861 until its devastating conclusion in 1865. The action, however, is by no means confined to home and hearth: it also includes scenes occurring on the battlefield and on shipboard; in churches, hospitals, and prisons; and elsewhere. We begin in the salad days of the Old South with its life of elegance and leisure being celebrated; we end with the South in ruins, its economy shattered and its surviving people -- black and white, male and female -- wounded and beggared. - Jacket flap

"This collection of essays devoted to the centrality of place in the short stories and novels of some of the twentieth century's most famous American writers was conceived as a way to honor the life and career of Walter Sullivan, an author for whom place was central both in his fiction and in his critical writing. The works explored in this volume range from the Middle West realism of Fitzgerald and Powers to the wilderness vision of Faulkner and the historical and political fiction of Warren."--Jacket

Nothing gold can stay : a memoir by Walter Sullivan( Book )

4 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Readers will discover a treasure trove of insights, as Sullivan's views of academic life are complemented by remembrances of important writers: John Crowe Ransom, Robert Lowell, Eudora Welty, Robert Penn Warren, James Dickey, Flannery O'Connor, and a host of others, blending the formal and familiar in a style befitting a lingering southernness. He also recalls his shock at being branded a racist by Kingsley Amis and addresses issues of race in academia and southern culture. throughout his career, he sees himself as a guardian of lost causes, continuing to teach an appreciation of literature in the face of encroaching post-structuralism and political correctness."--Jacket
