Collected Stories

This is a collection of the very best of William Faulkner’s short stories. Included are classics of short-form fiction such as ‘A Bear Hunt’, ‘A Rose for Emily’, ‘Two Soldiers’ and ‘The Brooch’. Faulkner’s ability to compress his epic vision into narratives of such grace and tragic intensity defines him as one of the finest and most original writers America has ever produced.
Rezension
"The magnitude of Faulkner's characters lies in their blood and bone and sinew: the exquisite specificity of their human fallibility... Faulkner seemed incapable of separating intimate character from universal truth, and this rough refusal - both humble and defiant - was at the root of his force as a writer... No other American writer has achieved such staggering heights of form"

Thus we must turn to him for that continuity of moral purpose which made which made for the greatness of our classics" -- Ralph Ellison "The magnitude of Faulkner's characters lies in their blood and bone and sinew: the exquisite specificity of their human fallibility... Faulkner seemed incapable of separating intimate character from universal truth, and this rough refusal - both humble and defiant - was at the root of his force as a writer... No other American writer has achieved such staggering heights of form" Boston Globe "No man ever put more of his heart and soul into the written word than did William Faulkner. If you want to know all you can about that heart and soul, the fiction where he put it is still right there" -- Eudora Welty
