Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Not only do these essays provide us with terrific readings of Faulkner's great novel, but they also allow us to peer into the sometimes murky depths of current theory and practice....[A]s interesting for the critical desires they express as for their extraordinary readings of The Sound and the Fury." James M. Mellard, Mississippi Quarterly
