Both Santa Fe and Taos are well known as important twentieth-century American art colonies, but their fame has rested more on the reputations of resident and visiting artists than the contributions of the writers, playwrights and poets, notable among them D. H. Lawrence, Willa Cather, Robert Frost, Thornton Wilder, Carl Sandburg, John Galsworthy, Sinclair Lewis and Edna St. Vincent Millay, who visited or lived and worked side-by-side with the artists. First published in 1982, Santa Fe and Taos: The Writer's Era, 1916-1941 highlights 'Literary New Mexico': the writers who followed Alice Corbin Henderson to Santa Fe and Mabel Dodge Luhan to Taos after 1916 and who later sought the company of Witter Bynner, Spud Johnson, Mary Austin, Haniel Long and Oliver La Farge, residents during what Southwest Classics author Lawrence Clark Powell calls a 'glorious literary period.'
