Literature in Virginia often deals with the state's

Literature in Virginia often deals with the state's extensive and sometimes troubled past. The works of Pulitzer Prize winner Ellen Glasgow often dealt with social inequalities and the role of women in her culture.[162] Glasgow's peer and close friend James Branch Cabell wrote extensively about the changing position of gentry in the Reconstruction era, and challenged its moral code with Jurgen, A Comedy of Justice.[163] William Styron approached history in works such as The Confessions of Nat Turner and Sophie's Choice.[164] Tom Wolfe has occasionally dealt with his southern heritage in bestsellers like I Am Charlotte Simmons.[165] Virginia also names a state Poet Laureate, currently Kelly Cherry of Halifax County, who will serve until 2012.[166]
