In prose of biblical grandeur and feverish intensity, William Faulkner reconstructed the history of the American South as a tragic legend of courage and cruelty, gallantry and greed, futile nobility and obscene crimes. No single volume better conveys the scope of Faulkner’s vision than The Portable Faulkner.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This is one of the great literary anthologies. Cowley as an editor mastefully put together pieces of the Faulkner world, and in doing so made the world literary community understand that they were not dealing with a teller of one single story but rather with the builder of a whole literary world of his own .Faulkner's South Faulkner's world of the human heart in conflict with itself is presented here in all its unforgettable complexity pain and beauty . I think that anyone who wishes to know the Faulkner world as a whole should certainly begin with this work, if not necessarily end with it.
