Sinopsis:

Augustus Baldwin Longstreet (1790-1870) was a lawyer, judge, state senator, newspaper editor, minister, political propagandist, and college president. He was also a writer who published one of Georgia’s first important literary works in 1835, Georgia Scenes, Characters, Incidents, Etc. in the First Half Century of the Republic. John Donald Wade’s biography of Longstreet was first published in 1924 but was out of print during most of Wade’s lifetime. In this 1969 reissue, M. Thomas Inge provides a bibliography of Wade’s published work in addition to an introduction.

As Inge notes, this biography was one of the first attempts to assess the cultural background of southern literature and it was the first real effort to investigate the nature of southwestern humor. In the opening chapter Wade announces his theme by saying that the history of Longstreet becomes “an epitome, in some sense, of American civilization.” The biography gradually narrows to a southern focus and as Inge remarks, Wade attempts “to take a panoramic view of the psyche of an entire society through one representative figure.”

About the Author:

John Donald Wade (1892-1963) was a noted biographer, essayist, and literary scholar. He was a member of the Vanderbilt Agrarian movement and a contributor to its manifesto, "I'll Take My Stand." Wade was also the founder of the "Georgia Review." M. Thomas Inge is the Robert Emory Blackwell Professor of English and the Humanities at Randolph-Macon College. An authority on popular culture and the history of the comic arts, he is the author or editor of more than fifty books.
