About the author (1980)

Donald Davidson was born in Tennessee in 1893. He was a critic and poet at Vanderbilt University, where he belonged to the "Fugitive" group, which was composed of defenders of Southern culture. Davidson helped to found the Fugitive magazine and his essays are included in I'll Take My Stand (1930), the famous work on southern agrarianism. Other essays by Davidson include "Still Rebels, Still Yankees." His work, The Attack on Leviathan: Regionalism and Nationalism in the United States, attacks the modern capitalist threat to traditional Southern culture and agrarian economy. His poetry includes An Outland Piper, Lee in the Mountains and Other Poems, Including the Tall Men, and The Long Street.
