♥ Book Title : The Wary Fugitives
☯ Full Synopsis : "John Crowe Ransom, Allen Tate, Donald Davidson, and Robert Penn Warren—each began his career as one of the coterie of southern poets centered at Vanderbilt University who attracted national attention with their publication of The Fugitive magazine in the early 1920s and the celebrated essays in I’ll Take My Stand. Collectively known as the Fugitives (or Agrarians as they were later called) they became ardent and influential participants in the regionalist-proletarian literary controversies of the Depression decades. Each of the four poets was personally concerned with the connection between their creative work and the social realities around them. In The Wary Fugitives Louis Rubin masterfully explores and illustrates the relationships between their poetry, novels, and literary criticism, and their work as social critics. He conducts, in the process, a revealing and provocative inquiry into the connection between American history and the twentieth-century South."Article| Louis D. Rubin, Jr.| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Fugitive Theory
☯ Full Synopsis : "The group known as the Southern Agrarians came out of Vanderbilt University in the wake of the 1925 Scopes Trial in Dayton, Tennessee. In response to attacks on the South and Southern culture, these scholars and poets-including Allen Tate, Donald Davidson, John Crowe Ransom, Robert Penn Warren, Andrew Lytle, Frank Owsley, and others-turned their attention to the defense of the South and its political tradition in numerous essays and books. Christopher Duncan's Fugitive Theory situates the Agrarians' political thought within the larger context of the Western political tradition in general and in the context of American political thought in particular. Duncan argues that the political theory of the Southern Agrarians is best understood in terms of a civic republicanism that has its roots in the thought of theorists such as Aristotle, Machiavelli, James Harrington, and Thomas Jefferson. In exploring this fascinating chapter of twentieth-century American history Duncan recovers a vision that included a commitment to private property in land, autonomy, and decentralized power-a vision that pitted itself against the call for centralization and materialism implicit in the ascendant industrial order."Article| Christopher M.

♥ Book Title : Waking Their Neighbors Up
☯ Full Synopsis : "Stung by attacks upon the South following the celebrated Scopes “monkey trial” in the 1920s, some of the poets comprising the Fugitive group at Vanderbilt University—notably John Crowe Ransom, Donald Davidson, Allen Tate, and Robert Penn Warren— conceived the idea of a symposium that would argue for the worth of an ordered, traditional society as an alternative to what they perceived as the increasing materialism of their times. The Fugitives were joined by eight other southerners, and the result was the 1930 Agrarian manifesto I'll Take My Stand. Published in 1982, this retrospective look at the Nashville Agrarians traces the evolution of I'll Take My Stand, explains what the men who made it were trying to do, and argues that time has proved them to be prophets."Article| Thomas Daniel Young| Statement ..."
