Book DescriptionIn Meeting the Professor , Alexander Blackburn tells the story of growing up as the son of William Blackburn, the legendary professor of English at Duke University. Before his death in 1972, William Blackburn formed strong mentor-protege relationships with such students as William Styron, Reynolds Price, Fred Chappell, and Guy Davenport, to name only a few. Styron would later describe William Blackburn as "unquestionably a glorious teacher." Through Alexander Blackburn's compassionate look at the "presence and influence of the unique and noble figures" of his parents, we also gain insight into his own struggles to become a writer and teacher.
