In this clear-sighted and enjoyable book, Cleanth Brooks, acknowledged to be "the best critic of our best novelist," introduces the general reader to Faulkner's most important novels and stories: The Sound and the Fury; As I lay Dying; The Hamlet; Go Down, Moses; Light in August; and Absalom, Absalom! Brooks focuses on theme, character, and plot as well as on Faulkner's world--the fictional Yoknapatawpha County that provides a unique setting for Faulkner's tragicomic vision.
