This is a wonderful edition and has been a great resource for my research in language variation, linguistic applications to literature, 19th-century American literature and culture, and language and masculinity. Bonus: The /Georgia Scenes/ publication history included in this volume opened lines of inquiry I had not previously thought about. Used it in researching an article a few years ago and just returned to it for a new project. Love this book.
