Benjamin Capps and the South Plains: A Literary Relationship

Front Cover
University of North Texas Press, 1990 - Fiction - 205 pages
Benjamin Capps has been called the Texas author whose work will be read 100 years from now, but Clayton notes that Caps has not been the frequent subject of nationally disseminated critical interpretation, perhaps because he is an anomaly—a writer of serious, literary fiction set in the West. Notable are Capps's perceptive characterizations and his use of historical background and folklore.
