Most Helpful Customer Reviews

By Phyllis J. Moore on February 1, 2014
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Faulkner's humor is one of his strengths. Teaching some of his more humorous works is a good way to interest students in the body of his works.

For me, this work fell short of revealing Faulkner's humor. There are too few examples and the essays are dry and scholarly.
