Corra Harris (1869-1935) was one of the most widely published and nationally popular women writers in the United States. ""A Circuit Rider's Wife"" (1910) was Georgia's most celebrated novel for nearly three decades. Now little read and almost forgotten, Harris' life offers a fascinating glimpse into a world nearly unimaginable to us today.In her writing, Harris poignantly and often humorously captured the paradoxes characteristic of the New South, a time and place of radically divergent goals. Pressed by national and economic demands to modernize, and regional desire to hold on to the past, leaders struggled at the turn of the century to reconcile competing goals. Issues of race, class, and gender found in Harris' writing were at the heart of the struggle.In depicting the complexities of Harris' era, her life, and her personality, historian Catherine Oglesby offers a remarkable insight into early twentieth-century literature and culture. She demonstrates the ways Harris' work and life both differed from and were the same as other southern women writers, and reveals the ways time and place intersect with race, class, gender and other variables in the forging of identity.
