Never in its long history has the South provided an entirely comfortable home for the intellectual. In the thought-provoking The Intellectual in Twentieth-Century Southern Literature Tara Powell considers the evolving ways that major post-World War II southern writers have portrayed intellectuals-from Flannery O'Connor's ironic view of "interleckchuls" to Gail Godwin's southerners striving to feel at home in the academic world.
