William Faulkner - James G. Watson Summary

From the beginning, William Faulkner's art was consciously self-presenting. In writing of all kinds he created and "performed" a complex set of roles based in his life as he both lived and imagined it. In his fiction, he counterpoised those personae against one another to create a written world of controlled chaos, made in his own protean image and reflective of his own multiple sense of self. In this groundbreaking book, James Watson draws on the entire Faulkner canon, including letters and even photographs, to decipher the complicated ways in which Faulkner put himself forth through written performances and displays based in and expressive of his emotional biography. The topics Watson treats include the overtly performative aspects of The Sound and the Fury and related manuscripts and privately written records of Faulkner's life; the ways in which his complicated marriage and his relationships to male mentors underlie recurring motifs in his fiction such as marriage and fatherhood; his reading of Melville, Hawthorne, and Thoreau, and his working out through them the problematics of authorial sovereignty; his presentation of himself as "Old Moster," the artist-God of his fictional cosmos; and the complex of personal and epistolary relationships that lies behind novels from Soldiers' Pay to Requiem for a Nun.

By the Bomb's Early Light - Paul Boyer Summary

Originally published in 1985, By the Bomb's Early Light is the first book to explore the cultural 'fallout' in America during the early years of the atomic age. Paul Boyer argues that the major aspects of the long-running debates about nuclear armament and disarmament developed and took shape soon after the bombing of Hiroshima. The book is based on a wide range of sources, including cartoons, opinion polls, radio programs, movies, literature, song lyrics, slang, and interviews with leading opinion-makers of the time. Through these materials, Boyer shows the surprising and profoundly disturbing ways in which the bomb quickly and totally penetrated the fabric of American life, from the chillingly prophetic forecasts of observers like Lewis Mumford to the Hollywood starlet who launched her career as the 'anatomic bomb.' In a new preface, Boyer discusses recent changes in nuclear politics and attitudes toward the nuclear age.

Written especially for puzzled readers, teachers of Faulkner, graduate students, and interpretive scholars, the Reading Faulkner books offer terms and explications that reveal the richly cultural world in Faulkner's major works.

New Directions in Faulkner Studies - Doreen Fowler,Ann J. Abadie Summary

What has Faulkner criticism so far accomplished? Where have scholars wandered far afield? What directions now should meaningful scholarship take? These questions are considered in this volume of papers presented at the Tenth Annual Faulkner and Yoknapatawpha Conference held in 1983 at the University of Mississippi. The authors, some of the leading names in Faulkner scholarship, point out that William Faulkner too often has been classified as a southern traditionalist, a primitive, a romantic realist, or a realist with a moral message. They share the view that too few critics have given sufficient attention to Faulkner's aesthetic dimensions and to his modernism, as well as to a careful study of his multitude of short stories, his letters, his nonfiction prose, and his speeches, essays, and interviews. The essays in this volume encourage Faulkner scholarship that gives attention to these new directions. - Back cover.

Faulkner and the Craft of Fiction - Doreen Fowler,Ann J. Abadie Summary

In 1944, William Faulkner wrote to Malcolm Cowley, I'm telling the same story over and over which is myself and the world. That's all a writer ever does, he tells his own biography in a thousand different terms.With these words, Faulkner suggests that what changes in the course of his prolific novel-writing career is not so much the content but the style, the thousand different terms of his fiction. The essays in Faulkner and the Craft of Fiction, first presented at the 1987 Faulkner and Yoknapatawpha Conference at the University of Mississippi, focus on Faulkner's narrative inventiveness, on how Faulkner, like his character Benjy in The Sound and the Fury, relentlessly kept trying to say.The contributors, authorities on Faulkner's narrative, offer a wide variety of critical approaches to Faulkner's fiction-writing process. Cleanth Brooks, for example, applies the strategies of New Criticism to Faulkner's rendering of the heroic and pastoral modes; Judith L. Sensibar attempts to locate biographical sources for repeated Faulknerian paradigms; and Philip M. Weinstein draws on the theories of the Marxist Althusser and the French psychoanalyst Lacan. The topics examined are similarly wide-ranging.

Faulkner at Fifty - Marie Liénard-Yeterian,Gérald Préher Summary

2012 commemoration ceremonies included strange bedfellows, as the year marked the 50th anniversary of the deaths of both Marilyn Monroe and William Faulkner. The Faulkner commemoration events were an opportunity for scholars to honor not just the memory of the writer, but also the memory of dear departed members of the “Faulkner community” – a community of past readers and lovers of Faulkner’s oeuvre. Divided into three parts, this collection first focuses on ways of teaching Faulkner, and then endeavors to show how the Mississippi writer made use of his knowledge of other writers to give shape to his craft and later help others. The last section puts Faulkner into perspective by bringing together new ways of reading his works and new voices that echo his. The twenty-first century shows how Faulkner’s fiction can be dislodged from its traditional moorings, dislocated and placed in movement, and transformed and tutored into new meanings and significance. This volume is a tribute to the memory of Noel Polk, André Bleikasten and Michel Gresset, pioneers in charting the course of the Faulkner journey.

Reading Faulkner - Richard Marius Summary

Reading Faulkner: Introductions to the First Thirteen Novels is a collection of lectures by Harvard University professor and nationally known novelist and biographer Richard Marius. Marius had been charged with the task of teaching an introductory course on Faulkner to undergraduates in 1996 and 1997. Combining his love of Faulkner's writing with his own experiences as an author and teacher, Marius produced a series of delightful lectures-which stand on their own as sparkling, well-rounded essays-that help beginning students in understanding the sometimes difficult work of this celebrated literary master. An expository treatment of Faulkner's major works, Reading Faulkner comprises essays that are arranged in roughly chronological order, corresponding to Faulkner's development as a writer. In a way sure to captivate the imagination of a new reader of Faulkner, Marius explicates themes in Faulkner's work, and he sheds light on the larger social history that marked Faulkner's literary production. In addition, Marius is a southerner who grew up a couple of generations after Faulkner and, like Faulkner, turned his own world into the setting for his fiction. This unique perspective, combined with Marius's thorough readings of the novels, grounded in basic Faulkner criticism, provides an engaging and accessible self-guided tour through Faulkner's career. Reading Faulkner is perfect for students from high school through the undergraduate level and will be enjoyed by general readers as well. Richard Marius (1933-1999) taught at the University of Tennessee before heading Harvard's expository writing program from 1978 to 1998. He was the author of Thomas More, Martin Luther: The Christian between God and Death, and four novels about his native East Tennessee. Nancy Grisham Anderson is an associate professor of English at Auburn University, Montgomery. She is the author of The Writer's Audience: A Reader for Composition and the editor of They Call Me Kay: A Courtship in Letters, and Wrestling with God: The Meditations of Richard Marius. She was a longtime friend of Richard Marius.

Recollection and Discovery - Cathy Covell Waegner Summary

For over half a century readers trying to make sense of Faulkner's characters have found themselves misled, conned, shocked, and left in the lurch. Faulkner's «tricks» continue to meet all too often with critical misunderstanding or disapproval. A new mode of inquiry casts light on the way the characters assume meaning in the novels. Taking on the roles of recollecting insider and discovering outsider, the reader can describe a rhetoric of character which links reader, work, and author. This study recreates strands of the reading process in Light in August, Absalom, Absalom¿, The Hamlet, Go Down, Moses, and «Knight's Gambit.»
