Summary
  • In an interdisciplinary approach that combines interpretive theory with the sociology and psychology of games, Faulkner's Gambitexamines the chess structures, motifs, and imagery in William Faulkner's only novella, situating this critically neglected work within both a historical and literary context. This study traces the rise to prominence of chess in America from its promotion as a self-actualizing and socially beneficial tool by Benjamin Franklin to its prebellum height with the legendary exploits of the nineteenth-century Louisianan maestro Paul Morphy
  • "This book offers the first full-length study of the chess structures, motifs, and imagery in William Faulkner's Knight's Gambit. Wainwright looks at the importance of chess as a literary device and examines the structural analogy drawn between the game and linguistics by Ferdinand de Saussure"--
