As I Lay Dying

This novel is the harrowing account of the Bundren family's odyssey across the Mississippi countryside to bury Addie, their wife and mother. Told in turns by each of the family members-including Addie herself-the novel ranges in mood from dark comedy to the deepest pathos. Originally published in 1930.

The Sound and the Fury

First published in 1929, Faulkner created his heart's darling, the beautiful and tragic Caddy Compson, whose story Faulkner told through separate monologues by her three brothers-the idiot Benjy, the neurotic suicidal Quentin and the monstrous Jason.

Light in August

Light in August, a novel about hopeful perseverance in the face of mortality, features some of Faulkner's most memorable characters :guileless, dauntless Lena Grove, in search of the father of her unborn child; Reverend Gail Hightower, who is plagued by visions of Confederate horsemen; and Joe Christmas, a desperate, mysterious drifter consumed by his mixed ancestry. Originally published in 1932.

The author:
William Faulkner was born in 1897 in Mississippi. He left high school at fifteen to work in his grandfather?s bank. Rejected by the US military in 1915, he joined the Canadian flyers but was still in training when the war ended. Returning home he studied at the University of Mississippi
