Instead, this critical study by one of the most acclaimed international Faulkner scholars takes its cue from Nietzsche’s concept of “truth as a mobile army of metaphors” and from Ricoeur’s dynamic view of metaphor and treats the wearing of masks not as an ontological issue but as a matter of discourse.
Honnighausen examines Faulkner’s interviews and photographs for the fictions they perpetuate. Such Faulknerian role-playing he interprets as a mode of organizing experience and relates it to the crafting of the artist’s various personae in his works.
