Edizione: 1st Edition
First Edition, 1st Printing Hardcover in Decorated Boards. 230pp. Very good condition lightly soiled and rubbed. No dust jacket. Written in black dialect from the perspective of a slave in the Civil War. Page republished "Marse Chan" along with six other stories that developed this same nostalgic vision in his book In Ole Virginia, Or, Marse Chan and Other Stories (1887). The book was seminal in the southern local color movement, strongly influencing such writers as Grace King, Joel Chandler Harris, George Washington Cable, and Mary Noailles Murfree. It remains a classic of plantation fiction, or the so-called Moonlight and Magnolia school of southern writing that would find ultimate incarnation in Margaret Mitchell's Gone with the Wind. The other stories in Page's 1887 compilation offer glimpses into the mentality of the late nineteenth-century Virginia aristocracy, which sought to confirm its "cavalier" heritage even as it struggled to negotiate a world that ostensibly provided no room for the existence of that heritage. from the Encyclopedia VirginiaHPO ISBN: B001QK1XPE.
