Ellen Glasgow (1873-1945), “Pulitzer Prize-winning American novelist whose realistic depiction of life in her native Virginia helped direct Southern literature away from sentimentality and nostalgia...In The Voice of the People (1900) she began a planned social history of Virginia from 1850. The series also included The Battle-Ground (1902), The Deliverance (1904), The Romance of a Plain Man (1909), and Virginia (1913)” (Merriam-Webster’s Encyclopedia of Literature).
