Faulkner's Artistic Vision: The Bizarre and the Terrible

Synopsis

"Faulkner's Artistic Vision brings together insights drawn from the novels, from humor theory including Faulkner's own, and from the rich scholarly literature on Faulkner. It proposes an understanding of Faulkner as a writer whose vision encompassed and blended the bizarre and the terrible. As a result, Faulkner's fiction, even at its bleakest, reveals a profound and multivalent sense of humor. And to attend to that humor is to discover still subtler and more mature fictions within even Faulkner's most familiar earlier novels." Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
