Summary
A comprehensive analysis of this twentieth-century author's novels from Soldier's Pay to The Reivers, including geneological charts and biographical information
Amazon.com description: Product Description: A standard reference work for forty years, this work is the most complete and detailed guide to the novels of William Faulkner. Unlike other treatments of Faulkner, this volume is designed specifically as a guide to critical interpretation and to promote an appreciation of Faulkner's novels. Edmond L. Volpe has organized this Guide into three parts: an overview of Faulkner's life and writing, including an analysis of his characters, themes, narrative structures, and style; a complete set of synopses of Faulkner's novels; and an appendix comprising chronologies of events for each major novel. A set of genealogical tables for each major family in the novels is also included.
