REVIEW ☆ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB ´ William Faulkner

Ry of the American South as a tragic legend of courage and cruelty gallantry and greed futile nobility and obscene cri. Unlike most of the Viking Portables which are just an anthology of a particular author or group s work the Portable Faulkner actually serves a useful purpose As you probably know most of Faulkner s work takes place in the fictional Yoknapatawpha County Mississippi and this volume collects stories and novel excerpts that give you a sense of the county s history and arranges them chronologically by the order in which they took place not by the order in which Faulkner wrote them If like me you ve only read his most famous novels you don t really get a sense the interconnectedness of his work and just how detailed and rich his fictional world is The specifics of the history and the important figures are spread kind of haphazardly through his oeuvre and having it organized here in a clear and understandable w

William Faulkner ´ 6 SUMMARY

Mes No single volume better conveys the scope of Faulkner's vision than The Portable Faulkner Edited by Malcolm Cowley. I highly recommend Malcolm Cowley s slicing dicing and rearranging the highlights of Faulkner s works Faulkner himself was very impressed with his editor s vision of his works and said so This book is the best way to dive into Faulkner s Yoknapatawpha god help with the spelling of that world County Because Faulkner re wrote so many things literary overlaps that Cowley parsed and cut and put together this indispensable book It has the Bear and Spotted Horses and all the historical tales of the founding of his wonderful and detailed world Buy it Keep it on hand It s a book that one can pick up read year after year for the rest of one s life and use it like a literary Bible to refresh and renew one s mind and spirit

    I think I've read most of the stuff in here probably not all But the rating and review are specifically for The Bear which I read years ago and a second time at least much recently The Bear is a terrific long short story novella if you will which is very representative of Faulkner's writing in many ways the setting the language the stream of consciousness style in certain places the references to the history of his mythical Mississippi cou

    This volume composed of short stories and full episodes from the novels by fan and critic Malcolm Cowley was apparently helpful to Faulkner's broader reception than any of his own individual novels This put Faulkner on the map with the normal reading public which means that all Faulkner criticism stems from Cowley's excellent not

    All of these stories and sections of novels are set in Yoknapatawpha County Faulkner's fictional creation in MississippiThe author's achievement here is impressive with his creation of a sense of fluid time and overwhelming detailI have never been enthusiastic regarding his prose style and often melodramatic plotsBut this book is as good as any to sample Faulkner and stories like The Bear contain all the elements that are notab

    This is a collection of stories from several novels and shorts set in Faulkner's brainchild of Yoknapatawpha County There are several stories some stand outs being The Courthouse Was A Rose for Emily and the The Bear The Bear in particular took my breath away This collection would be a great way for someone new to Faulkner to break into his sometimes dense writing style as the stories are collected from different sources and though order

    The best and worst of Faulkner You get the simple poignancy of the Compson family stories the spooky 'Southern Gothic' in pieces like A Rose For Emily but also the needlessly incomprehensible rambling in Spotted Horses
