Focusing on six historically significant chronological periods -- ranging from 1585 to the present -- it makes a distinction between the literature of the Upper and Lower South, offers a special section on the literature of Appalachia, and features selections from a broad diversity of genres and writers, including many works anthologized here for the first time, especially literature from early periods.

Comprehensive section introductions and headnotes place the selections in historical and cultural context. Explores the literature in six distinct periods in Southern history: Colonial South (1585-1820), Rise of the Confederacy and the Civil War (1820-1865), Reconstruction and the New South (1865-1920), Renaissance (1920-1960), Tradition and identity Reevaluated (1960-1980), and Postmodern South (1980 -- present).
