This collection of essays explores Faulkner's widespread cultural import. Drawing on a wide range of cultural theory and writing in accessible English, ten major Faulkner scholars examine the enduring whole of Faulkner's work and bring into focus the broader cultural contexts that lent resonance to his work. The collection will be particularly useful to the student seeking a critical introduction to Faulkner, while also serving the dedicated scholar interested in recent trends in Faulkner criticism.
