ENGL 73.19 Faulkner

Although he never received a college degree and lived most of his life in a small town in one of the most impoverished states in the nation, William Faulkner is now acclaimed throughout the world as one of the greatest modern writers. In this seminar, we will focus on Faulkner's fiction and on its place in the history of modernism. Particular attention will be given to the importance of Southern history and Southern legends, which are inseparable in the fiction from the experiences of individual and family life. We will read The Sound and the FuryAs I Lay DyingAbsalom Absalom!Light in August, Go Down, Moses, and The Hamlet and study the work of critics who have debated the meanings of Faulkner’s art, especially, for recent critics, the importance of race to the stories he tells.
