From the introduction, “Faulkner is one of America’s greatest writers, and one of his central subjects is race. But can Faulkner, a white Southerner, the great-grandson of a slave owner, or, for that matter, can any white man enter a black consciousness or render accurately black lives? Opinions vary.” In this volume, the editors offer a collection of papers by Faulkner scholars originally presented at the 1986 Faulkner and Yoknapatawpha Conference held at the Oxford campus of the University of Mississippi.
