Editorial Reviews

Wilson
"Faulkner… belongs to the full-dressed post-Flaubert group of Conrad, Joyce, and Proust." --Edmund Wilson
Ellison
"For all his concern with the South, Faulkner was actually seeking out the nature of man. Thus we must return to him for that continuity of moral purpose which made for the greatness of our classics." --Ralph Ellison
