The Sound and The Fury - With - As I Lay Dying

The Sound and The Fury - With - As I Lay Dying

by William Faulkner

William Faulkner once described The Sound and the Fury, his
fourth novel, as “a real son-of-a-bitch” and “the greatest I’ll ever write.”
Set in Jefferson, Mississippi, the novel — a classic example of Southern gothic
literature — traces the decaying values of the Southern society through the
downfall of the aristocratic Compson family. The Sound and the Fury is

Light In August

Light In August

by William Faulkner

Light in August is a 1932 novel by the American author William Faulkner. Light in August is an exploration of racial conflict in the society of the Southern United States. Originally Faulkner planned to call the novel Dark House, which also became the working title for Absalom, Absalom! Supposedly, one summer evening while sitting on a porch, his wife remarked on the strange quality that light in the south has during the month of August.
As I Lay Dying

As I Lay Dying

by William Faulkner

William Faulkner claimed to have written As I
Lay Dying, his fifth novel, in just six weeks — with very little revision —
while working at power plant in 1929. While this sounds impressive in and of
itself, also consider the fact that this novel has 15 different narrators

greatest works of the American literature.As I Lay Dying is the first book in which
Faulkner introduces Yoknapatawpha County, a fictional rendition of his... Read more

Requiem For a Nun

Requiem For a Nun

by William Faulkner

Requiem for a Nun is a book written by William Faulkner in 1951. Like many of Faulkner's works, Requiem experiments with narrative technique—the book is part novel, part play. The protagonist is Temple Drake, a character introduced as a college student in Sanctuary, one of Faulkner's early novels. In Requiem Temple, now married with a child, must learn to deal with her violent, turbulent past as related in Sanctuary.
