Summary
"William Faulkner (1897- 1962), like other authors of the Southern Renascence, believed the South to be a victim of post-Civil War, Northern imperialism. Through their writing, these authors offered a response that may be termed "postcolonial" and profitably compared to the writing of postcolonial authors worldwide. By consistently undercutting the myths of the South, however, Faulkner goes beyond the nostalgic Confederate flag-waving of his contemporaries and suggests a path toward personal liberation."--BOOK JACKET
