9780307946751: THREE FAMOUS SHORT NOVELS: Spotted Horses, Old Man, The Bear (Vintage International)

“You cannot swim for new horizons until you have courage to lose sight of the shore.” —William Faulkner
 
These short works offer three different approaches to Faulkner, each representative of his work as a whole. Spotted Horses is a hilarious account of a horse auction, and pits the “cold practicality” of women against the boyish folly of men. Old Man is something of an adventure story. When a flood ravages the countryside of the lower Mississippi, a convict finds himself adrift with a pregnant woman. And The Bear, perhaps his best known shorter work, is the story of a boy’s coming to terms wit the adult world. By learning how to hunt, the boy is taught the real meaning of pride, humility, and courage.

From the Inside Flap:

Three different ways to approach Faulkner, each of them representative of his work as a whole. Includes "Spotted Horses," "Old Man," and his famous "The Bear."

About the Author:

William Cuthbert Faulkner was born in 1897 and raised in Oxford, Mississippi, where he spent most of his life.

Faulkner was awarded the Nobel Prize in 1950 and France’s Legion of Honor in 1951. He died in 1962.
