Faulkner: Collected Stories This magisterial collection of short works by Nobel Prize-winning author William Faulkner reminds readers of his ability to compress his epic vision into narratives as hard and wounding as bullets. Among the 42 selections in this book are such classics as "A Bear Hunt", "A Rose for Emily", Two Soldiers", and "The Brooch". Full description

Product Description:

These extraordinary stories embody the essence of Yoknapatawpha County, the imaginary Mississippi kingdom created by William Faulkner. Themes of the hunt, violence and friction between black and white, the past living in the present, surface again and again, handled with Faulkner's insider's genius for re-creating an intensely human world, steeped in sin and very nearly at the end of its tether.

Review:

"No man ever put more of his heart and soul into the written word than did William Faulkner. If you want to know all you can about that heart and soul, the fiction where he put it is still right there." --Eudora Welty

"For all his concern with the South, Faulkner was actually seeking out the nature of man. Thus we must turn to him for that continuity of moral purpose which made for greatness of our classics." --Ralph Ellison
