"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."--Jacket
New directions in Faulkner studies by Faulkner and Yoknapatawpha Conference( Book )
5 editions published between 1983 and 1984 in English and held by 550 libraries worldwide
What has Faulkner criticism so far accomplished? Where have scholars wandered far afield? What directions now should meaningful scholarship take? These questions are considered in this volume of papers presented at the Tenth Annual Faulkner and Yoknapatawpha Conference held in 1983 at the University of Mississippi. The authors, some of the leading names in Faulkner scholarship, point out that William Faulkner too often has been classified as a southern traditionalist, a primitive, a romantic realist, or a realist with a moral message. They share the view that too few critics have given sufficient attention to Faulkner's aesthetic dimensions and to his modernism, as well as to a careful study of his multitude of short stories, his letters, his nonfiction prose, and his speeches, essays, and interviews. The essays in this volume encourage Faulkner scholarship that gives attention to these new directions. - Back cover

Drawing the line : the father reimagined in Faulkner, Wright, O'Connor, and Morrison by Doreen Fowler( Book )
6 editions published in 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 267 libraries worldwide
In an original contribution to the psychoanalytic approach to literature, Doreen Fowler focuses on the fiction of four major American writers - William Faulkner, Richard Wright, Flannery O'Connor, and Toni Morrison - to examine the father's function as a "border figure." Although the father has most commonly been interpreted as the figure who introduces opposition and exclusion to the child, Fowler finds in these literary depictions fathers who instead support the construction of a social identity by mediating between cultural oppositions. Fowler counters the widely accepted notion that boundaries are solely sites of exclusion and offers a new theoretical model of boundary construction. She argues that boundaries are mysterious, dangerous, in-between places where a balance of sameness and difference makes differentiation possible. In the fiction of these southern writers, father figures introduce a separate cultural identity by modeling this mix of relatedness and difference. Fathers intervene in the mother-child relationship, but the father is also closely related to both mother and child. This model of boundary formation as a balance of exclusion and relatedness suggests a way to join with others in an inclusive, multicultural community and still retain ethnic, racial, and gender differences. Fowler's model for the father's mediating role in initiating gender, race, and other social differences shows not only how psychoanalytic theory can be used to interpret fiction and cultural history but also how literature and history can reshape theory. -- Book jacket

Faulkner and the Craft of Fiction by Ann J Abadie( Book )
2 editions published between 1987 and 2012 in Undetermined and English and held by 1 library 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
