Synopsis

2012 commemoration ceremonies included strange bedfellows, as the year marked the 50th anniversary of the deaths of both Marilyn Monroe and William Faulkner. The Faulkner commemoration events were an opportunity for scholars to honor not just the memory of the writer, but also the memory of dear departed members of the "Faulkner community" - a community of past readers and lovers of Faulkner's oeuvre. Divided into three parts, this collection first focuses on ways of teaching Faulkner, and then endeavors to show how the Mississippi writer made use of his knowledge of other writers to give shape to his craft and later help others. The last section puts Faulkner into perspective by bringing together new ways of reading his works and new voices that echo his. The twenty-first century shows how Faulkner's fiction can be dislodged from its traditional moorings, dislocated and placed in movement, and transformed and tutored into new meanings and significance. This volume is a tribute to the memory of Noel Polk, Andre Bleikasten and Michel Gresset, pioneers in charting the course of the Faulkner journey.
