This text is one in a series of chapters on Texas History. It surveys the development of Texas Literature, providing the reader with a general overview which can serve as a basis for further study. The overview begins with a discussion of the last half-century, focusing on J. Frank Dobie, Walter Prescott Webb, and Roy Bedichek. The discussion then describes characteristics of Texas writing and writers up to the present, concluding with a discussion of future trends. Several themes treated are the Texas writer as an expatriate, the relation of Texas history and fiction, literature of the soil, and Texas writers and the city.
