The spirit of home in the literature of the Lower South
Text from page 3: In 1867 Harte began writing stories of the West that were focused upon locality, employing in them a technique similar to that of Poe. He has been heralded as the first contributor to the literature of locality. I shall challenge this point of view, attempting to show that the Lower South had developed this form of writing before the appearance of Harte.
