- Literature, Culture and Society in Depression Era America: Archives of the Federal Writers’ Project
The Federal Writers’ Project (FWP) was the most controversial and contentious program of the Work Projects Administration (WPA), an integral part of Franklin D. Roosevelt’s "New Deal;" This bold, imaginative and wide-ranging enterprise is the key to understanding literature, culture and society in America during the Depression era.
- The Southern Literary Messenger: Literature of the Old South
The Southern Literary Messenger was one of the most successful and influential literary magazines in the South. Founded by Thomas Willis White (and edited for a time by Edgar Allan Poe) the Messenger, according to the magazine’s editor James Ewell Heath in the first issue, was meant to serve as "a kind of pioneer, to scope out the land of literary promise in the South, and to report whether the same be fruitful or barren."
