Faulkner is notoriously a 'difficult' writer to study, especially for first-time readers. This Literature Insight begins with three chapters clearly setting out the important facts of his life, mapping the people and history of his recurrent fictional setting, Yoknapatawpha County, and analysing the oddities and problems of his prose style. Later chapters turn directly to his great novel 'Go Down, Moses' and his later collection 'Big Woods', dealing in detail with each story and the intertexts and showing how they connect and add up to something much more than loose collections. Readers new to Faulkner will find it a very helpful introduction to his world, and those already familiar with him a valuable resource.
