Editorial Reviews

VOYA
In this encyclopedic dictionary, Fargnoli and Golay provide detailed entries on Faulkner, his works, family, friends, contemporaries, and prominent places in his life. The volume also contains entries on publishers, magazines, and other social, historical, and cultural influences on Faulkner's work, including the response from not only critics but also the public. The appendixes are rich in resources, including family trees for Faulkner's family as well as for several families in his books. The entries are detailed meticulously, packed with see references, and sprinkled with photographs of Faulkner. The articles on Faulkner's works not only synopsize the plots but also provide background. Clearly written and carefully researched, the book also is visually appealing. What is perhaps one of the most significant benefits of this resource is that it demystifies Faulkner's work, rendering the novels and short stories more accessible to readers who might find them daunting. This book certainly deserves a place in any high school library as well as in larger young adult reference sections in public libraries. Indeed, if Faulkner is part of the literature curriculum, this source is essential. Index. Illus. Photos. Biblio. Chronology. Appendix. 2002, Facts on File, 340p,
— Donna Scanlon
Library Journal
Designed for the nonspecialist, like other fine volumes in Facts On File's "Literary A to Z" series, this work is intended as a supplement to help readers negotiate Faulkner's amazing modernist aesthetic, which led into the postmodernist movement. Anyone who has struggled with the extraordinary style and narrative inventiveness of Faulkner will appreciate the assistance. The work contains over 1500 cross-referenced entries on all of Faulkner's works (poems, short stories, novels, letters, essays, speeches, and screenplays); the names, places, events, and ideas associated with them; their critical and popular reception; historical and social influences; and Faulkner's family relations. Four appendixes (covering character family trees, major library holdings and other bibliographic lists, a chronology, and assorted writings) round out the work. The most recent notable reference on Faulkner is Robert W. Hamblin and Charles A. Peek's A William Faulkner Encyclopedia (Greenwood, 1999), which is more scholarly in tone (and has signed essays) but covers much of the same material at a cost of $95. Public and school libraries that do not own the Hamblin/Peek title will be well served by this somewhat less expensive title; academic libraries should consider both. Highly recommended as an erudite treatise on all things Faulkner.DNeal Wyatt, Chesterfield P.L., VA Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
