Corra Harris and the Divided Mind of the New South

This chapter discusses the influence of Paul Elmer More on the literature, viewpoints, and ideas of Corra Harris. Paul Elmer More was an essayist, editor, and a literary critic whom Harris's met during her intellectual development. Although they corresponded constantly for a decade, the primary years of their association were from 1901 to 1914. And although they met face-to-face on several occasions, the venue of their relationship was almost exclusively through letters and correspondence. More co-authored Harris's first book-length work, The Jessica Letters: An Editors's Romance, which was composed of letters from two fictional lovers whom were representations of More and Harris. During their brief association, More influenced Harris wherein she developed an admiration in which she internalized More's teachings. While Harris acknowledged the impression of More's ideas on her, she variously challenged, accepted, adapted, and eventually outgrew some of his regressive ideologies.
