Summary: Tracing the transatlantic influence of the Irish Revival upon the Southern Renaissance, this work explores how the latter looked to the former for guidance, artistic innovation, and models for self-invention and regional renovation. Artuso investigates the renaissance trope of female rebirth, as the revivalists often figured cultural, national, or regional regeneration through the metamorphoses and maturation of female protagonists such as Cathleen ní Houlihan, Scarlett O'Hara, and Virgie Rainey.
