Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0918518466, Hardcover)George Scarbrough is a poet by profession. He is the youngest member of the Agrarian movement which numbered among its members men like Robert Penn Warren and Cleanth Brooks. Through their theories and writings in the thirties and forties, they changed the form and style of American literature dramatically and irrevocably.
In Summer Ago's young hero, Alan, we have the autobiographical voice of Scarbrough, the young man not yet turned poet. In Alan's painful and exquisite passage from spring to fall, from boy to man, mature Scarbrough gives us back our own memories as well as his. As the preeminent voice of his generation, he also gives us the final and ultimate insight into the Agrarian posture.
