The 1920s literary magazine The Fugitive transformed Vanderbilt University into the home of New Criticism, spearheaded by a group of young poets. In Fugitive Days, author and professor Gerald Duff recalls meeting the poets, now older and accomplished, including Robert Penn Warren, John Crowe Ransom, Allen Tate, and Andrew Lytle. In these chance encounters, Duff finds the humanity in each -- some approachable, some remote, some lost in the wilds of age or overshadowed by their own legends. Duff takes away with him new understanding of what writers-as-fugitives gain and sacrifice in pursuit of their craft.
