A rose for Emily and other stories by William Faulkner( )

2 editions published in 1942 in English and held by 47 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Here is a classic collection from one of America's greatest authors. Though these short stories have universal appeal, they are intensely local in setting. With the exception of "Turn About, "which derives from the time of the First World War, all these tales unfold in a small town in Mississippi, William Faulkner's birthplace and lifelong home. Some stories--such as "A Rose for Emily, z"The Hound, "and "That Evening Sun"--Are famous, displaying an uncanny blend of the homely and the horrifying. But others, though less well known, are equally colorful and characteristic. The gently nostalgic"Delta Autumn "provides a striking contrast to "Dry September "and "Barn Burning, "which are intensely dramatic. As the editor, Saxe Commins, states in his illuminating Foreword: "These eight stories reflect the deep love and loathing, the tenderness and contempt, the identification and repudiation William Faulkner has felt for the traditions and the way of life of his own portion of the world."
