Although a state's value may be assessed through looking into its educational or health care system, its justice administration, its natural or historical resources, and its economy, it is also important to consider a state's culture. Kentucky has done very well in terms of music, literature, drama, film, and newspaper writing. Although some of Kentucky's musicians, actors, artists, and writers are not as well-known in other states as they should be, Kentucky has proven to outperform several other states in terms of writing and in music. This chapter attempts to illustrate some of Kentucky's great early authors—Lexington's James Lane Allen and Bourbon County's John Fox Jr.—as well as twentieth-century and modern writers. Also, the chapter examines poetry, drama, music, newspapers, music, radio and television, film and other aspects of art and media.
