Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“No man ever put more of his heart and soul into the written word than did William Faulkner. If you want to know all you can about that heart and soul, the fiction where he put it is still right there.” —Eudora Welty
 
“For all his concern with the South, Faulkner was actually seeking out the nature of man. Thus we must turn to him for that continuity of moral purpose which made for greatness of our classics.” —Ralph Ellison

Great collection of short stories, nice way to get an idea of his style before jumping into one of his novels. Formatting isn't the greatest, but the links work which is the most important part, a strange symbol here and there mainly.

Today's NYTimes top fiction-sellers list seems to have tons of fiction but all too little literature. And though I never thought William Faulkner could be described as "refreshing" getting back to the old master takes the reader where the place is loaded with creative oxygen. Faulkner is at his most accessible in his short stories. Though, perhaps, most found ways into a novel. There are selection which became the Snopes Trilogy, for example. Collected Stories of William Faulkner is a trip back in time dealing with what makes Southerners Southern. . . . and raising the question: Just how far have we come from this?
