As clearly as any single book by or about Faulkner, this reveals a writer who was both a craftsman and a genius." -- Time
This invaluable volume, which has been republished to commemorate the one-hundredth anniversary of Faulkner's birth, contains some of the greatest short fiction by a writer who defined the course of American literature. Its forty-five stories fall into three categories: those not included in Faulkner's earlier collections; previously unpublished short fiction; and stories that were later expanded into such novels as The Unvanquished, The Hamlet, and Go Down, Moses. With its Introduction and extensive notes by the biographer Joseph Blotner, Uncollected Stories of William Faulkner is an essential addition to its author's canon -- as well as a hook of some of the most haunting, harrowing, and atmospheric short fiction written in this century.
"I recommend this book not only to Faulkner students but to all who would like to learn more about the imaginative process of a great artist." -- Malcolm Cowley
