Bohemian South

Lindsey A. Freeman

University of North Carolina Press

Southern superrealism is not yet a canonized art movement, nor is it a social science. It has no self-appointed leaders or manifestos, no museum retrospectives, no scholarly journals, and it has not been established as a field of literature—at least not yet. This essay begins to imagine such a field, starting with the writer James Agee and his wild, ethnographically tinged works of fiction and nonfiction.

Keywords:   American South, James Agee, literature, social science, Surrealism
