More than fifty years after his death, William Faulkner still casts a long shadow over southern literary studies—along with other giants such as Flannery O’Connor, Zora Neale Hurston, Tennessee Williams, and Eudora Welty. Yet the American South is also the locus and muse for contemporary literary production, as we forge into the twenty-first century with new ideas and possibilities, changing demographics, and modes of connection.
