Excerpt from The Library of Southern Literature Whether Mr. Dixon has produced literature or t, and whether the future will have use for his books, are questions t lightly to be answered. Our generation is reckoning with 'the Leopard's Spots' and 'the Clansman.' Few modern books have been so widely read or so extensively discussed. They have voiced the long-dumb South's protest, t in the ble restrained Spirit we ascribe to the South, but in strident reproach and defiant challenge and naked dis closure. One may say it were better had the South gone on in silence, ather that it is good the facts have been given living forms; but everyone must recognize the genius that understood the situation and commanded the ear of civilization. He has interpreted in his own passionate way the life about him. This is Mr. Dixon's distinction, and it is the only claim of himself and his works to fame.
