In this major reassessment, now available in paperback, Richard Gray uses and develops recent theories about the relationship between writing and historical experience, language and social change, to draw a brilliantly detailed portrait of the place and times Faulkner inhabited. Attending closely to each of the novels, Gray shows how they brim with an often undisclosed biography that is at once personal and cultural.

From the Back Cover:

Arguably the greatest novelist yet to emerge from the UnitedStates, William Faulkner was a white Southerner creatively obsessedwith problems of personal identity, social change, religion,sexuality, race, and that elaborate circuitry of passion and power- the family.

In this major reassessment, now available in paperback, RichardGray uses and develops recent theories about the relationshipbetween writing and historical experience, language and socialchange, to draw a brilliantly detailed portrait of the place andtimes Faulkner inhabited and to reveal just how intimately woventogether were the tangled threads of Faulkner's personal and publicexperience - the privacy that Faulkner cherished and this historyin which, whether he liked it or not, he was ensnared.
