In this biography, David Minter draws upon a wealth of material, including the novelist's essays, interviews, published and unpublished letters, as well as his poems, stories and novels, to illuminate the close relationship between the flawed life of the artistic achievement of one of 20th-century America's most complex literary figures and to reveal Faulkner as powerful, vulnerable and real. In the new preface, Minter locates his biography in relation to the changes in the literary and critical landscape during the 1980s and discusses its departures from New Critical tenets about the relationship between the author's lives and their works.
David Minter is Libbie Shern Moody Professor of English at Rice University. He is the author of The Interpreted Design as a Structural Principle in American Prose and A Cultural History of the American Novel: Henry James to William Faulkner.
