Dream Garden provides the first inclusive appreciation and evaluation of the poetry of one of the South’s, indeed America’s, premier writers, Fred Chappell. The selections range from a poignant prologue by George Garrett to appreciations by R.T. Smith and R.H. W. Dillard; from critical pieces by Henry Taylor and Dabney Stuart, among others, to a description of the Chappell papers at Duke University by Alex Albright. In addition, Dream Garden includes a recent interview with Chappell by Resa Crane and James W. Kirkland. Dream Garden is essential reading for those interested in the writing of Fred Chappell, one of the finest voices in the South.
George Garrett --poet, novelist, critic, and editor--has written seven previous volumes of poetry, including Luck's Shining Child. He is Henry Hoyns Professor of Creative Writing at the University of Virginia.
