Florence Dore Moderator: Rock and Literature II

In Florence Dore’s electrifying, genre-busting tour de force, the mid-twentieth-century inventors of literary formalism, tracing poetic tradition to the ballad form, inadvertently open literature’s floodgates to encompass the bold ‘novel sounds’ of rock ‘n’ roll. Southern fiction, no less than American culture, would never be the same.

~ Jennifer Fleissner, Indiana University-Bloomington
