The mountain South thrives on centuries-old cultural heirlooms, a fact well known to readers of Appalachian literature, which is among the richest and most evocative of any region in the country.This anthology collects 225 poems by 37 poets of Southern Appalachia, from James Still and Louise McNeill to Robert Morgan, Fred Chappell and Charles Wright. Embracing the region's strong narrative traditions, dialect and syntax, the collection also includes poems that redefine the terms of isolation, as technological change and heightened tourism bring the old and new ways into greater tension.Autobiographical essays introduce each poet and his or her work. Notes explain colloquial, obscure, or historical references appearing in the poems.
