The Deliverance; A Romance of the Virginia Tabacco Fields

ByEllen Glasgow

In her third novel of the Virginia series, The Deliverance: A Romance of the Virginia Tobacco Fields (1904), Glasgow combines elements of realism and romance to depict the South's postwar struggles. With an epic grandeur, she explores the escalating class conflicts within Virginia agricultural life after Reconstruction, highlighting the fall of the old aristocracy and the rise of a new order. Glasgow focuses on the decline of the Blake family, who had been prosperous landowners for the two hundred years leading up to the Civil War.
