William Alexander Percy:
Lanterns on the Levee: Recollections of a Planter's Son - gebrauchtes Buch

1973, ISBN: 0807100722

ID: 4227677

Born and raised in Greenville, Mississippi, within the shelter of old traditions, aristocratic in the best sense, William Alexander Percy in his lifetime (1885-1942) was brought face to face with the convulsions of a changing world. Lanterns on the Levee is his memorial to the South of his youth and young manhood. In describing life in the Mississippi Delta, Percy bridges the interval between the semifeudal South of the 1800s and the anxious South of the early 1940s. The rare qualities of this classic memoir lie not in what Will Percy did in his life-although his life was exciting and varied-but rather in the intimate, honest, and soul-probing record of how he brought himself to contemplate unflinchingly a new and unstable era. The 1973 introduction by Walker Percy-Will's nephew and adopted son-recalls the strong character and easy grace of "the most extraordinary man I have ever known." AUTHOR BIO: William Alexander Percy was the author of four books of poetry, and he practiced law in Greenville until his death, one year after the publication of his autobiography. Awarded the Croix de Guerre with gold star for his service in World War I, he also was one of the leaders in the succesful 1922 fight against the Ku Klux Klan in Greenville and headed the local Red Cross unit during the disastrous Mississippi River flooding of 1927. 20th century,americas,arts and literature,authors,biographies,history,literary criticism,literary criticism and collections,modern (16th-21st centuries),state and local Biographies, Scholarly Book Services Inc

Autor:

Percy, William Alexander

Titel:

Lanterns on the Levee: Recollections of a Planter's Son

ISBN-Nummer:

A Southerner of the Mississippi Delta tells, discursively and with no little charm, of his childhood, parents, Virginia relatives, small boy activities and education and life in the pre-1900's. Harvard Law, a spot of teaching, politics, travel, the First World War and his share. Back to Mississippi, fighting the Klan and the river floods. Pleasant reading, leisurely, philosophical, retrospective, nicely old style - of more than local interest. (Kirkus Reviews)
