"I would definitely recommend this collection. I wish I had it when I first taught The Sound and the Fury over fifteen years ago, and, as I taught the novel this semester, I was delighted, inspired, and challenged by its plethora of resources and points of view."
Teaching Faulkner

"I found the essays overflowing with dozens of clearheaded and practical classroom strategies for making Faulkner's novel and related stories accessible and comprehensible to students. The volume is a must for all teachers of Faulkner, at whatever level."
Robert W. Hamblin, Director, Center for Faulkner Studies, Southeast Missouri State University

We are currently out of stock of the paperback edition of this title. The cloth edition will be substituted at the paperback price.

The works of William Faulkner have become part of the undergraduate canon in the decades since he received the Nobel Prize in 1950. While many of Faulkner's novels and stories are assigned to high school and college students, the editors of this volume focus on The Sound and the Fury because the novel is representative of Faulkner's best writing and accessible to many levels of teaching and learning. The novel also lends itself to exploration of many topics, including biographical fiction, the decline of the Old South and the rise of the New South, the influence of American and European literary traditions, and the treatment of subjectivity and language.
