In a time of disorder

by Jeffrey J Folks | 28 August 2003
PAPERBACK
Synopsis
As Andrew Lytle noted, southern fiction has been written in a time of disorder that has its origin in a post-Enlightenment privileging of unconstrained individualism and personal freedom. Southern writers from Edgar Allan Poe to Flannery O'Connor have employed narrative form in efforts to restore order and meaning, often despite the conviction that society is governed to a great extent by mere chance or injustice. In a Time of Disorder examines the ways in which southern writers, including Twain, Faulkner, Wright, and Welty, have struggled to wrest form and meaning from a historical world increasingly perceived as purposeless, disordered, and corrupt. Although southern writers have responded to a sense of cultural disorder in various ways, ranging from religious orthodoxy to skepticism, their fictions express a common need to explore sources of order and meaning or, at the very least, to confront their absence.
