144 editions published between 1950 and 2014 in 10 languages and held by 3,898 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
An allegorical story of World War I set in the trenches in France and dealing ostensibly with a mutiny in a French regiment. This novel won both the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book award in 1955. An allegorical story of World War I, set in the trenches in France and dealing ostensibly with a mutiny in a French regiment, it was originally considered a sharp departure for Faulkner. Recently it has come to be recognized as one of his major works and an essential part of the Faulkner oeuvre. Faulkner himself fought in the war, and his descriptions of it ""rise to Magnificence"," according to The New York Times, and include, in Malcolm Cowley's words, ""some of the most powerful scenes he ever conceived"."
