Format: Hardcover
This volume provides a historical record of critical reaction to one of William Faukner's most important fictional families, the McCaslins. The book contains a section on the resources Faulkner used in creating his characters, a number of reprinted essays about the family, an important appendix containing Faulkner's geneology for the family and related documents. Among the authors of reprinted essays are Booker T. Washington, Charles V. Chesnutt, John Faulkner, Thadious M. Davis, Lee Jenkins, and Walter Taylor. In addition to Arthur F. Kinney's survey of criticism in the introduction, there are also sixoriginal essays commissione specifically for publication in this volume, studies by Nick Gidley, Panthea Reid Broughton, Albert J. Devlin, Elisabeth Muhlenfeld, Bernard W. Bell, and Richard H. King. We are confident that this book will make a permanent and significant contribution to American Literary study.
