Product Overview

"Richard Godden''s "William Faulkner: An Economy of Complex Words" is a stunning account of Faulkner''s late fiction that combines intense close reading and attention to the history of mid-twentieth-century modernization to reaffirm Faulkner''s centrality, not just to Southern literature or to modernist aesthetics, but to the mainstream of American history and culture."--Andrew Hoberek, University of Missouri, Columbia

"This book asks us to think again about Faulkner and the relation of language to history. It is provocative but patiently argued, theoretically sophisticated yet marvelously fluent, challenging as well as convincing. It swims against much of the current critical tide but it gets much further into new territory on Faulkner and narrative."--Richard Gray, author of "The Life of William Faulkner"
