Lucinda H. MacKethan shows that, despite the constraining and muting effects of the Souths historically patriarchal society, the region has been graced by the remarkably strong presence of women storytellers, black and white, who have asserted their determination to become themselves through creative acts of voicing.Within a chronological structure, MacKethan examines the letters of the plantation mistress Catherine Hammond- the memoir Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl by Harriet Jacobs- the autobiographical writings of Ellen Glasgow, Zora Neale Hurston, and Eudora Welty, as well as their novels Barren Ground, Their Eyes Were Watching God, and The Optimists Daughter- and finally, Alice Walkers The Color Purple and Lee Smiths Fair and Tender Ladies.
