In works such as The Sound and the Fury, As I Lay Dying, Light In August, and Absalom, Absalom! Faulkner drew powerfully on Southern themes, attitudes, and atmosphere to create his own world and place - the mythical Yoknapatawpha County - peopled with quintessential Southerners such as the Compsons, Sartorises, Snopes, and McCaslins. Indeed, to a degree perhaps unmatched by any other major twentieth-century novelist, Faulkner remained at home and explored his own region - the history and culture and people of the South. Now, in William Faulkner and Southern History, one of America's most acclaimed historians of the South, Joel Williamson, weaves together a perceptive biography of Faulkner himself, an astute analysis of his works, and a revealing history of Faulkner's ancestors in Mississippi - a family history that becomes, in Williamson's skilled hands, a vivid portrait of Southern culture itself. Williamson provides an insightful look at Faulkner's ancestors, a group sketch so brilliant that the family comes alive almost as vividly as in Faulkner's own fiction. Indeed, his ancestors often outstrip his characters in their colorful and bizarre nature. Williamson has made several discoveries: the Falkners (William was the first to spell it "Faulkner") were not planter, slaveholding "aristocrats"; Confederate Colonel Falkner was not an unalloyed hero, and he probably sired, protected, and educated a mulatto daughter who married into America's mulatto elite; Faulkner's maternal grandfather Charlie Butler stole the town's money and disappeared in the winter of 1887-1888, never to return. Equally important, Williamson uses these stories to underscore themes of race, class, economics, politics, religion, sex and violence, idealism and Romanticism - "the rainbow of elements in human culture" - that reappear in Faulkner's work. He also shows that, while Faulkner's ancestors were no ordinary people, and while he sometimes flashed a curious pride in them, Faulkner came to embrace a pervasive sense of shame concerning both his family and his culture. This he wove into his writing, especially about sex, race, class, and violence - psychic and otherwise. William Faulkner and Southern History represents an unprecedented publishing event - an eminent historian writing on a major literary figure. By revealing the deep history behind the art of the South's most celebrated writer, Williamson evokes new insights and deeper understanding, providing anyone familiar with Faulkner's great novels with a host of connections between his work, his life, and his ancestry+-+6959250465287831ocn000597015book19640.37Volpe, Edmond LorisA reader's guide to William FaulknerCriticism, interpretation, etcHandbooks, manuals, etcStudy guidesThis Guide offers analyses of all Faulkner's short stories, published and unpublished, that were not incorporated into novels or turned into chapters of a novel. Each of the seventy-one stories receives separate and detailed appraisal. This approach helps establish the relationship of the stories to the novels and underscores Faulkner's skill as a writer of short fiction. Although Faulkner often spoke disparagingly of the short story form and claimed that he wrote stories for money, which he did, this critical study reveals that Faulkner could not resist the application of his creative imagination or his mastery of narrative structure and technique to this genre. -- From back cover+-+129581063527123ocn000284423book19660.26Warren, Robert PennFaulkner; a collection of critical essaysCriticism, interpretation, etcContemporary critical opinion and commentary on William Faulkner and his works254115ocn000284247book19590.35Vickery, Olga WThe novels of William Faulkner : a critical interpretationCriticism, interpretation, etc"Hailed by reviewers upon its publication more than thirty years ago, The Novels of William Faulkner remains the preeminent interpretation of Faulkner in the formalist critical tradition while it inspires Faulknerians of all methodologies.

With psychopathological imposture-theories they have explained his numerous "false stories," particularly those about military honors he actually never earned and war wounds he never sustained. The drawback of this critical approach is that it reduces and oversimplifies the complex psychological and aesthetic phenomenon of Faulkner's role-playing. Instead, this study by one of the most acclaimed international Faulkner scholars takes its cue from Nietzsche's concept of "truth as a mobile army of metaphors" and from Ricoeur's dynamic view of metaphor and treats the wearing of masks not as an ontological issue but as a matter of discourse. Honnighausen examines Faulkner's interviews and photographs for the fictions they perpetuate. Such Faulknerian role-playing he interprets as "a mode of organizing experience" and relates it to the crafting of the artist's various personae in his works. His conclusion, a comparative view of cultural nationalism and international regionalism in the Thirties, will lead readers to a new understanding of The Hamlet and of Faulkner's self-portrait of the artist as a Mississippi farmer+-+4344053235229518ocn001627614book19510.39Howe, IrvingWilliam Faulkner : a critical studyCriticism, interpretation, etc+-+841230474522462ocn042329873file19970.35Unflinching gaze Morrison and Faulkner re-envisionedHistoryCriticism, interpretation, etc+-+694685030532421804ocn036011705book19970.31Singal, Daniel JosephWilliam Faulkner : the making of a modernistCriticism, interpretation, etcThrough detailed analyses of individual texts, from the earliest poetry through Go Down, Moses, Singal traces Faulkner's attempt to liberate himself from the powerful and repressive Victorian culture in which he was raised by embracing the Modernist culture of the artistic avant-garde. Most important, it shows how Faulkner accommodated the conflicting demands of these two cultures by creating a set of dual identities - one, that of a Modernist author writing on the most daring and subversive issues of his day, and the other, that of a southern country gentleman loyal to the conservative mores of his community. It is in the clash between these two selves, Singal argues, that one finds the key to making sense of Faulkner+-+9008732535215610ocn006144358book19800.30Minter, David LWilliam Faulkner, his life and workBiographyShows the relationship between the troubled life and the outstanding writing of a noted 20th century American author+-+829203653521387ocn014967210book19870.24Oates, Stephen BWilliam Faulkner, the man and the artist : a biographyBiographyA biography of the American novelist and short story writer21279ocn000283544book19650.35Faulkner, WilliamEssays, speeches & public lettersMiscellaneaRecords and correspondenceAn essential collection of William Faulkner's mature nonfiction work, updated, with an abundance of new material.

He has connected the literature with the life in a way not achieved in previous criticism. Although other critics, notably John T.
