About the book:

When first published in 1982, this collection of writings by antebellum southerners unveiled an intellectual richness that few scholars had been willing to acknowledge. Since then the subject of the Old South's intellectual life has attracted increasing attention. From the pages of forgotten journals and literary magazines O'Brien assembles 14 pieces that effectively challenge the long-prevailing notion that the mind of the Old South was superficial, unintellectual, and obsessed with race and slavery. In this book are discourses on subjects ranging from English empirical thought to neoclassical aesthetics, from the enfranchisement of women to transcendental theology, from the works of Hawthorne and Emerson to the social system of Virginia.
