Title

Article "Dr. Landrum Entertains Reading Club"

Description

This article was written about English professor Dr. Grace Landrum’s reading of “Marse Chan,” one of the most famous works of Thomas Nelson Page. “Marse Chan” nostalgically represented the “Old South,” and in this article, Dr. Landrum is praised for her “interpretation of negro dialect.” Thomas Nelson Page, an author in the late 1800s and early 1900s, wrote primarily of the "Old South" which featured a South where enslaved people were happy and satisfied with their situations because of their simplicity and lack of awareness and understanding.
