Faulkner's Short Stories

Synopsis:

The original CliffsNotes study guides offer expert commentary on major themes, plots, characters, literary devices, and historical background.

CliffsNotes on Faulkners Short Stories explores five of William Faulkners psychologically complex narratives: A Rose for Emily, That Evening Sun, Barn Burning, Dry September, and Spotted Horses.

Follow a common thread of Southern mores and prejudices as the author from Mississippi masterfully creates enduring settings and characters. This concise supplement includes commentaries and glossaries on all five short stories. Other features that help you understand these important works are

  • Background on the author
  • An introduction to YoknapatawphaCounty, the mythical county seating of Faulkners making
  • Critical essay on the authors style
  • An interactive quiz, review questions, and suggested essay topics

Classic literature or modern modern-day treasure — you'll understand it all with expert information and insight from CliffsNotes study guides.

Synopsis:

Like his longer novels, Faulkner's shortest stories can be difficult to follow, given that events are presented out of order and the narrator is not easily identified. This study of five stories adds a clarity that leads to a greater appreciation of his genius. The stories covered in this edition are "A Rose For Emily, That Evening Sun, Barn Burning, Dry September," and "Spotted Horses."
