Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“For the readers of Faulkner, the book is indispensable. Its brilliant introduction . . . is full both of helpful information . . . and of fine insights.”

—Paul Engle, The Chicago Tribune

“We gain something more than a glimpse of the mind of a young genius asserting his power against a partially indifferent environment. The long introduction . . . must rank as a major literary contribution to our knowledge of an outstanding writer: perhaps the greatest of our times.”

The Book Exchange (London)

“The interesting thing for us now, who can see in this book the outline of the writer Faulkner was to become, is that before he had published his first novel he had already determined certain main themes in his work.”

—Alfred Kazin, The New York Times Book Review
