Presaging William Faulkner's Quentin Compson, the protagonist of Walter Hines Page's The Southerner inches toward progressive ideals while bearing the unshakable weight of the past in the post-Civil War South. The novel is the fictional autobiography of Nicholas Worth, a Harvard-educated Southerner who unsuccessfully champions education reforms in his native state. Worth recounts his struggles to move between the Old South and the New and gives readers a sustained critique of an era in which that kind of movement seemed impossible. First published serially in the Atlantic Monthly in 1906 and subsequently by Doubleday, Page, and Company in 1909, The Southerner voices hopeful opinions on the social and economic reconciliation of the North and South and of black and white populations while never losing sight of the stumbling blocks toward progress-particularly the shortcomings of the educational system, but also those of party politics, the press, the church, and institutions invested in lionizing the Confederacy.

Thomas Wolfe, an author in the Southern Literary Renaissance, was not like the Southern writers that preceded him. These foregoing authors focused on historical romances, purportedly valiant efforts by Confederate soldiers, and the antebellum Southern condition. This historical writing, firmly rooted in the traditionally Southern rhetorical style (a method, as Allen Tate argued in his 1959 essay “A Southern Mode of the Imagination,” of writing based on persuasion and oratory) began to diminish as the South witnessed several crucial events: the abolition of slavery, the defeat of the Confederate forces, and Reconstruction [1865–1877].
