I'LL TAKE MY STAND


 



75th  Anniversary  Celebration and Conference on Agrarianism

This November is the 75th anniversary of the publication of I’ll Take My Stand. Authored by twelve Vanderbilt poets, playwrights, authors and professors known collectively as the “fugitives,” the collection of essays provided an intellectual defense of the South and its Agrarian tradition. What the Agrarians were telling the South and the nation was a way of life that omits or deemphasizes the “more spiritual side” of existence is necessarily disastrous to all phases of life.
