William Faulkner

$ 3.99

The American writer and Nobel Prize laureate, William Faulkner is primarily known for his novels set in the fictional Yoknapatawpha County, based on Lafayette County, Mississippi, where he spent most of his life. One of the most celebrated writers of twentieth-century literature, Faulkner was an important exponent of the modernist technique. His masterpieces ‘The Sound and the Fury, ‘As I Lay Dying’ and ‘Light in August’ are celebrated for their depth of characterisation, structural resourcefulness and social notation. Influenced by the works of Sherwood Anderson, Herman Melville and especially James Joyce, Faulkner blended the stream-of-consciousness technique with vibrant social history. For the first time in publishing history, this eBook presents Faulkner’s complete works, with numerous illustrations, rare texts appearing in digital print for the first time, informative introductions and the usual Delphi bonus material.
