The Legacy of Truman Capote and In Cold Blood

ocbookshoppe.com [cached]

The seminar consisted of two parts, a speaker, Ralph Voss, and a rarely seen documentary, With Love From Truman.
The research by Capote and his book's success led Ralph Voss, an English professor at the University of Alabama, to reflect on it in his own book, Truman Capote and the Legacy of In Cold Blood. When the murders occurred in 1959, Voss was a high school junior in Plainville, Kansas, 171 miles away from Holcomb-the scene of the murders. Voss compared his celebrity to that of an Alexandrian or Napoleonic hero. The documentary screened alongside Voss's speech was shot at the crest of Capote's career, just as he was riding the high from In Cold Blood. Voss recounted the effects those two men had on his own family, saying that his parents first began locking their doors at night. Everyone around Voss at the time knew that Capote and his friend Harper Lee had come to Kansas with the intention of writing was Capote called his "nonfiction novel. Voss says the purpose of his book is to examine the cultural impact of Capote and his book, from his homosexuality to capital punishment.
