This index identifies some 1,000 female characters who appear in novels, short stories, and plays about the American South. All of the major and some of the minor characters created by the most distinguished Southern writers are included. (Authors who wrote about the South but who were not born or raised there are excluded.) All characters are listed alphabetically, followed by a short description of their character traits and/or role. This is followed by the work(s) of literature in which the character appears and the author's name. Sweeney's introduction includes an explanation of the scope, organization, and rationale of the work. Also covered are the depictions of women by Southern writers, including stereotypical patterns, racial differences, regional diversity, and developmental progress or changes in portraiture. Following the index is an appendix listing fifteen categories of Southern female characters. The labels for these categories are drawn from the literature itself. Author and title indexes conclude the work.
