One of the greatest and most influential American writers, William Faulkner is remembered for novels and short stories that explore the complex culture and tragic legacy of the American South. Winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature, Faulkner and his influential works—As I Lay Dying; Light in August; The Sound and the Fury; Absalom, Absalom!; "The Bear"; and many others—are studied all over the world.

Critical Companion to William Faulkner—a major revision and expansion of William Faulkner A to Z—features more than 80,000 additional words. Character entries and Critical Commentary sections on Faulkner's major works have been significantly expanded, and entirely new sections providing excerpts from contemporary reviews have been added. Other new features include further reading lists for Faulkner's major novels and short stories as well as a detailed chronology of one of Faulkner's greatest and most complicated works, As I Lay Dying.

Coverage includes:

  • Faulkner's major works, including novels, short stories, poetry, and nonfiction
  • Descriptions of characters in Faulkner's fiction, such as Benjy and Quentin from The Sound and the Fury
  • Details about Faulkner's family, friends, colleagues, and critics
  • Real and fictional places important to Faulkner's life and literary development, from Yoknapatawpha County, Mississippi to Hollywood
  • Interviews and speeches given by Faulkner
  • Ideas and events that influenced his life and works, including slavery, the Civil War, World War I, and civil rights.
