This timely reappraisal of Walker Evans and James Agee's photo-textual collaboration Let Us Now Praise Famous Men, 1941 focuses on the interdisciplinary aspects of the book. It provides in-depth chapters on the book's status as part imaginative fiction, documentary effort, ethnographic study, confessional writing, and modernist prose. Contributions range from chapters on Walker Evan's photographs and their seminal role in representing the South, material on the journalistic and sociological context for Agee and Evans's collaboration, their personal relationship and more. Taking into account such concepts as psychoanalysis, photography, cinema, ethnography, semiotics, journalism and the South, among other things, these essays constitute a long overdue and important endeavor within American Studies
