(p.175) 11 New Agrarian Writers
The Mother of All Arts

This chapter discusses the arrival of the new agrarian writers, who wanted to either write about farming or to use farming as a background for their writing. These new writers had a much more hopeful view of rural life and could use the language with consummate skill, unlike earlier agrarian writers. It categorizes two kinds of new agrarian writers: those who came to farming from the outside and, as new farmers, helped create a new agrarianism, and those who grew up on farms and know the darker side of rural life. John Baskin and Michael Perry are two new agrarian writers who are discussed in this chapter.
