William Faulkner A to Z: The Essential Reference to His Life and Work (Literary A to Z Series)

William Faulkner is remembered for novels and short stories that explore the intricate culture and tragic legacy of the American South. Winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1949, Faulkner created works - "As I Lay Dying"; "The Sound and The Fury"; "Absalom, Absalom!"; "The Bear" and many others - that are read and studied throughout the world. This book is a complete reference to his life, writings, and characters, as well as the people, events and ideas that influenced him as a person and a writer. More than 1500 cross-referenced entries include: synopses of Faulkner's fiction, poetry and non-fiction, with information on background, critical reception, and adaptions; descriptions of characters in his fiction; details of his friends, family, colleagues, and critics; places, real and fictional, important to Faulkner's life and literary development, from Yoknapatawpha County, Mississippi to Hollywood; and ideas and events that influenced his life and works, including race, time, the Civil War, and World War I.
