Comments

¶ An interesting, but biased, anthology and account of Louisiana writers, including useful biographical information on many obscure writers. The contents are divided into historical sketches, oratory, essays, fiction, drama and poetry. George Washington Cable, a celebrated native son, is given scant notice, and there are two essays denouncing his views on civil rights (which were progressive) and his fictional interpretations of Creoles.
