What People are saying about this

Edmund Wilson
Faulkner... belongs to the full-dressed post-Flaubert group of Conrad, Joyce, and Proust.
Ralph 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.
Robert Penn Warren
For all the range of effect, philosophical weight, originality of style, variety of characterization, humor, and tragic intensity [Faulkner's works] are without equal in our time and country.
