John Gould Fletcher by Edna Stephens

Copyright 1967
Checked out 0 times in ? years (date of acquisition unclear)

Though Fletcher was from the South (Arkansas) and won a Pulitzer in 1939, he is now rarely anthologized and thus has been forgotten except by literary professionals. I don’t know that I had ever heard of him prior to this. Considering his currently marginalized status (fairly or not), I don’t see any reason for Albertville, being a small town, to purchase a volume of his poetry. And without a volume of his poetry (which the library currently doesn’t have), there’s not much point in having a volume of criticism, so let this book go.
