Southern Folk: (1) Faulkner’s “Negro”; (2) White Stereotypes

Thadious Davis speaks about her study of Faulkner’s attitudes toward blacks and whites. She is the author of Faulkner’s ‘Negro’: Art and the Southern Context.

In the second segment [13:45], John Shelton Reed, the author of Southern Folk, Plain and Fancy: Native White Social Types, describes his book as a field guide to the white human fauna of the South and its white stereotypes.

At the time of these interviews, Davis was professor of English at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

Reed, a Fellow at the National Humanities Center (1983-84), was also professor of English at UNC-CH.

This edition of Soundings was conducted by Wayne J. Pond.
