Summary "In this newest volume in Oxford's Lives and Legacies series, Carolyn Porter, a leading authority on William Faulkner, offers an account of Faulkner's life and work, with special focus on the twelve-year period when he wrote some of the finest novels in American literature. Porter illuminates the importance of Faulkner's legacy not only for American literature, but also for world literature, and reveals how Faulkner lives on so powerfully, both in the works of his literary heirs and in the lives of readers today."--Jacket
