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