On the prejudices, predilections, and firm beliefs of William Faulkner : essays by Cleanth Brooks ( Book )
12 editions published between 1987 and 2002 in English and held by 2,037 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
It seems appropriate, if not inevitable, that one of our best critics should be the foremost authority on one of our best novelists. Cleanth Brooks, the author of three seminal studies of William Faulkner, was a serious student of that master craftsman's fiction for more than four decades. In this collection, Brooks considers many of the important characteristics of Faulkner's work. He focuses more specifically than he has in the past on certain questions and in some instances offers rebuttals to what he considers unfair assessments of Faulkner. These essays are vintage Brooks
