1904. Glasgow's realistic fiction novels often showed the female characters as stronger than the male characters. It was this new type of Southern fiction that made Ellen Glasgow one of the major writers of her time. The vantage point from which most of her nineteen novels were written was her native home of Richmond, Virginia. She received the Pulitzer prize in 1942 for In This Our Life. In 1900, with the publication of The Voice of the People, Glasgow began a series of novels which came to compose her ambitious fictional social history of Virginia. This series includes The Battle Ground, a Civil War novel, and this volume, The Deliverance, which tells of the aftermath of the Civil War, when the Southern social order underwent wrenching change.
