William Cuthbert Faulkner (/ˈfɔːknər/; September 25, 1897 – July 6, 1962) was an American writer and Nobel Prize laureate from Oxford, Mississippi. Faulkner wrote novels, short stories, screenplays, poetry, essays, and a play. He is primarily known for his novels and short stories set in the fictional Yoknapatawpha County, based on Lafayette County, Mississippi, where he spent most of his life.

Faulkner made his debut as a published writer at the age of 21 with the poem "L'Après-midi d'un Faune", which appeared in The New Republic on August 6, 1919.

Faulkner’s mastery of modern modes of narration, namely through his use of the interior monologue, multiple narrators and displacement of time, can be enjoyed in the following nine seminal works by the author. The sensationalist plot of this novel revolves around a naïve teenage student, Temple Drake, who falls into the hands of some amoral southern bootleggers who use her and to whom she grows attached

William Faulkner Biography - The Noble Prize winner American Writer, William Faulkner has written many critically acclaimed short stories, plays, screenplays, essays and novels. The Noble Prize winner American Writer, William Faulkner has written many critically acclaimed short stories, plays, screenplays, essays and novels. He is considered to be one of the most important writers of the American southern literature and ranked shoulder to shoulder with other significant writers such as Robert Penn, Harper Lee, Truman Capote and Tennessee Williams of the same genre.

The Town, the central novel, records Flem’s ruthless struggle to take over the county seat of Jefferson, Mississippi. For all his concerns with the South, Faulkner was actually seeking out the nature of man, noted Ralph Ellison. Finally, The Mansion tells of Mink Snopes, whose archaic sense of honor brings about the downfall of his cousin Flem. Thus we must turn to him for that continuity of moral purpose which made for the greatness of our classics.

Okay, so there are a few holes in the plot. But finding them makes this and the other novels of the Snopes family trilogy even more fun to read. And who can write like Faulkner? Who can paint a picture with words of a setting in its ambience and zeitgeist of its a moment? Not only the external signs, secret-giving of the winds and rolling hills on which spirits travel's avail in the Mississippi of the post-Civil War south, but the painter extracts that with exacting the minds of the characters reducing them to peers of the nature and time around them.

There are many profound words and great quotes that can also be exacted from the citizens of Faulknerville. For example, "A lot of people talk without saying anything, and listen without hearing anything." And perhaps Faulkner defends himself by defending a character who says, "The poets are wrong of course... But then, poets are almost always wrong about facts. That's because they are not really interested in facts: only in truth: which is why the truth they speak is so true that even those who hate poets... are exalted and terrified by it."

Great reading if you love poetic novels with intriguing and intricate plots and curiously fascinating characters. But the trilogy must be read in order with The Hamlet first and The Mansion last. Great for long, summer reads too!

I had not read this in years and was glad to rediscover it...his prose is often poetic. Having grown up in Oxford much of this book felt familiar ( although I don't remember knowing any "Snopes")

I like Faulkner but some of his books you feel like you're up against a pretty heavy headwind. I'll probably come back to it at some point. My favorite is Light in August.

In American literature, it is hard if not impossible to do better than Faulkner. Though The Town comes along somewhat later in his writing, it is still vintage Faulkner.

I bought this for a birthday present for someone and he was quite happy. He wanted the book to be used but also wanted to keep it in the Faulkner collection. Great story.
