Percy is best known for his philosophical novels set in and around New Orleans, Louisiana , the first of which, The Moviegoer , won the National Book Award for Fiction in 1962.

Walker Percy and Southern Literature

"I DON'T LIKE TO BE DESCRIBED as a Southern writer," declared Walker Percy in a 1989 interview. "The danger is, if you're described as a Southern writer, you might be thought of as someone who writes about a picturesque local scene like Uncle Tom's Cabin Gone With the Wind , something like that." ( More Conversations , 223). Percy frequently attempted to evade the danger of being labeled a "Southern writer" by stressing the more existentialist aspects of his work, but his fiction nonetheless remains very much a part of the Southern literary heritage. Southern literature, except for Faulkner, has largely been ignored in traditional American literature books and courses which privilege Northeastern American literary history, leading to the fear of being labeled a "Southern writer" that many Southern authors exhibit. Part I of this essay will briefly delineate the history and themes of Southern literature in order to reveal Percy's connections to his native literature in Part II.

(2). That reading had an effect on me very similar to Helen Keller's remarkable experience with the water from the fountain, referred to so many times by Percy(3). Percy was suggesting that the unifying element in all those topics that had attracted me so much was to be found in the insufficiency of the scientificist narrative that, permeated with a simplified Darwinism, had dominated the Anglo-American academic scene during the second half of this century with the aim of explaining the most characteristic behaviours of human beings such as language and communication. The cure in Percys judgement ought to be looked for in Charles Peirce and his discovery of the irreducibly triadic nature characteristic of all linguistic behaviour: the remedy to overcome the San Andreas Fault, the gap that divides our culture between natural sciences and humanities, making an integrated understanding of human beings and their activity impossible, was to be found in "the work of a human scientist who, I believe, laid the groundwork for a coherent science of man, and did so a hundred years ago"(5). Scientism, held by the Vienna Circle and its positivist heirs, became the dominant culture from the 1950s onwards, converting itself into materialist realism which sought to explain everything

Lebte ab 1950 in Covington, Louisiana. 1990 gestorben an Krebs in Covington. Werke The Moviegoer (Roman, 1960), dt. bersetzung Der Kinogeher (1980, bersetzt von Peter Handke) Aus der Anmerkung zur deutschen bersetzung von Peter Handke: " The Moviegoer wurde zunchst wenig beachtet. Doch der National Book Award 1962 trug dann in Amerika viel zu einer Wirkung bei, die nicht mit der Saison wieder verschwand, sondern auch jetzt noch, fast zwanzig Jahre spter, machtvoll andauert. Ohne ein auerliterarisches Kultbuch zu sein, aber auch nicht einzuordnen in die amerikanische Romantradition, wird The Moviegoer von einem Leser an den anderen weitergegeben, als die geltende Geschichte, jenseits der aktuellen Ideologien oder Schreibtheorien. ... Trotzdem will ich eine Phantasie nicht verschweigen, die im Lauf der bersetzungsarbeit immer strker und wrmer wurde: da der Moviegoer wieder ein Held ist, wie er nach Camus'
