GEORGE WASHINGTON CABLE
Cable signs his view of "Acadian maidens.."
Autograph Quotation signed: "Yours truly/Geo. W. Cable/March 30 1886.", 4¼x3½ card, in brown ink. In full: "Acadian maidens are shy as herons. They always see you first."GeorgeWashington Cable (1844-1879) was a journalist turned novelist who set his stories in his native New Orleans, especially the Creole community there. Although he had served in the Confederate army, his novels showed strong sympathy for the plight of African-Americans, and he wrote essays supporting civil rights. His friend Mark Twain, with whom he shared a lecture tour, called him "the South's finest literary genius" and praised Cable as a writer and as the person with whom to tour New Orleans. His realistic portrayals of southern life, as influenced by its history, foreshadow twentieth century authors like William Faulkner. Toned. Otherwise, fine condition.
