Randy Hendricks here explores the centrality of the theme of exile as a way of understanding Warrens artistry, showing that the exile figure is both a key to Warrens relation to much of twentieth-century Southern literature and an index to his growth as an artist.Understanding the exile theme, as Hendricks reveals, is crucial to understanding Warrens regionalism, his thinking on race, and his complex theories of language. This insightful work makes clearer Warrens place in American literature and his importance to the definition of Southern and is a valuable resource for anyone seeking to better understand the interplay between regional consciousness, modernity, and the literary imagination.
