About this title


Gray (English, U. of Essex) discusses the relationship between writing and historical experience, language, and social change in this portrait of Faulkner's place and times. He shows how the novels reflect events in Faulkner's life, and how they speak to us today. Includes critical discussion of all of Faulkner's novels, a chronology, and b&w photos. Annotation copyright Book News, Inc. Portland, Or.

From the Back Cover:

Arguably the greatest novelist yet to emerge from the United States, William Faulkner was a white Southerner creatively obsessed with 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, 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 and to reveal just how intimately woven together were the tangled threads of Faulkner's personal and public experience - the privacy that Faulkner cherished and this history in which, whether he liked it or not, he was ensnared.
