About the Author:

William Cuthbert Faulkner was born in 1897 and raised in Oxford, Mississippi, where he spent most of his life. One of the towering figures of American literature, he is the author of The Sound and the Fury, Absalom, Absalom!, and As I Lay Dying, among many other remarkable books. Faulkner was awarded the Nobel Prize in 1950 and France’s Legion of Honor in 1951. He died in 1962.

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

Book Description Vintage Publishing, United Kingdom, 2009. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. In this extraordinary collection, Faulkner captures the bitter tensions of America s Deep South. Beneath an unrelenting sun, the themes of pride, intense passion, the overbearing influence of women and the spectres of the past are played out in stories of memorable power. Faulkner s muscular, vivid prose lays bare the anguish of a land riven by violence and racial conflict, and the pathos, dignity and troubled history of its people. If you imagine Huckleberry Finn living in the House of Usher and telling stories white the walls crumble about him, that will give you the double quality of Faulkner s work at its best.
