This chapter presents a reading of Woolson’s last novel Horace Chase, where she links the industrial and commercial exploitation of the South with her contributions to illustrated magazines. By connecting periodical writing with Gilded-Age commercial development, the novel thus provides an oblique commentary on Woolson’s own avocation and livelihood, even as her pages offer an elegy for the lost landscapes of the South.

Keywords:   Constance Fenimore Woolson, American South, Gilded-Age, commercial development
