Faulkner and race by Doreen Fowler( file )
5 editions published between 1987 and 2012 in English and held by 1,337 libraries worldwide
The essays in this volume address William Faulkner and the issue of race. Faulkner resolutely has probed the deeply repressed psychological dimensions of race, asking in novel after novel the perplexing question: what does blackness signify in a predominantly white society? However, Faulkner's public statements on the subject of race have sometimes seemed less than fully enlightened, and some of his black characters, especially in the early fiction, seem to conform to white stereotypical notions of what black men and women are like. These essays, originally presented by Faulkner scholars, black and white, male and female, at the 1986 Faulkner and Yoknapatawpha Conference, the thirteenth in a series of conferences held on the Oxford campus of the University of Mississippi, explore the relationship between Faulkner and race. With essays by Eric J. Sundquist Craig Werner Blyden Jackson Thadious Davis Pamela J. Rhodes Walter Taylor Noel Polk James A. Snead Philip M. Weinstein Lothar Houmlnnighausen Frederick R. Karl Hoke Perkins Sergei Chakovsky Michael Grimwood Karl F. Zender
Faulkner and the craft of fiction by Faulkner and Yoknapatawpha Conference( Computer File )
4 editions published between 1987 and 2012 in English and held by 1,327 libraries worldwide
In 1944, William Faulkner wrote to Malcolm Cowley, "I'm telling the same story over and over which is myself and the world. That's all a writer ever does, he tells his own biography in a thousand different terms." With these words, Faulkner suggests that what changes in the course of his prolific novel-writing career is not so much the content but the style, "the thousand different terms" of his fiction. The essays in Faulkner and the Craft of Fiction , first presented at the 1987 Faulkner and Yoknapatawpha Conference at the University of Mississippi, focus on Faulkner's narrative inventiveness, on how Faulkner, like his character Benjy in The Sound and the Fury , relentlessly kept "trying to say." The contributors, authorities on Faulkner's narrative, offer a wide variety of critical approaches to Faulkner's fiction-writing process. Cleanth Brooks, for example, applies the strategies of New Criticism to Faulkner's rendering of the heroic and pastoral modes; Judith L. Sensibar attempts to locate biographical sources for repeated Faulknerian paradigms; and Philip M. Weinstein draws on the theories of the Marxist Althusser and the French psychoanalyst Lacan. The topics examined are similarly wide-ranging

Faulkner : the return of the repressed by Doreen Fowler( Book )
9 editions published between 1997 and 2000 in English and held by 551 libraries worldwide
"In Faulkner: The Return of the Repressed, Doreen Fowler uses what she terms a feminist psychoanalytic methodology to assess the symbolic meanings of race and gender in five of his major novels. Focusing on black and female characters, she demonstrates how these figures represent psychic doubles for Faulkner's white male protagonists."--BOOK JACKET. "This book addresses the deep ambivalence toward women and blacks in Faulkner's fiction and offers a much-needed response to frequent allegations that Faulkner embraced white male supremacist values by demonstrating how his texts expose and critique patriarchal culture."--BOOK JACKET
