William Faulkner was awarded the Nobel Prize for literature in 1950. Since than studies of the writer have proliferated, approaching his work from various points of view. In a style at once compact, detailed and highly readable, Allan Warren Friedman combines the best features of all these approaches as he explores the life and career of this troubling (and troubled) author in a critical overview. He documents the unity of Faulkner's writing: the prevailing themes and settings as well as the writer's failure, in Faulkner's own estimation, to express fully and successfully all that he has hoped. In spite of -- or perhaps because of -- his own emotional and psychological problems, Faulkner succeeded in creating characters and novels that embody his vision, which was dominated by a pattern of failure and repetition. Professor Friedman depicts the extraordinary work of the greatest American novelist of this century. ISBN 0-8044-2218-4 : $15.50.
