This detailed literature summary also contains Bibliography on Blackberry Winter by Robert Penn Warren.

The novelette Blackberry Winter was originally published separately in 1946 and subsequently collected in Robert Penn Warren's first and only volume of short stories, The Circus in the Attic, initially published in 1947.
