Om författaren

Born in an old Mississippi family, William Faulkner made his home in Oxford, seat of the University of Mississippi. After the fifth grade he went to school only off and on-lived, read, and wrote much as he pleased. In 1918, refusing to enlist with the "Yankees," he joined the Canadian Air Force, visa mer and was transferred to the British Royal Air Force. After the war he studied a little at the University, did house painting, worked as a night superintendent at a power plant, went to New Orleans and became a friend of Sherwood Anderson, then to Europe and back home to Oxford. By this time he had written two novels. The Sound and the Fury followed in 1929. Financial success came with Sanctuary in 1931, which he assisted in filming. Faulkner 's novels are intense in their character portrayals of disintegrating Southern aristocrats, poor whites, and African Americans. A complex stream-of-consciousness rhetoric often involves Faulkner in lengthy sentences of anguished power. Most of his tales are set in the mythical Yoknapatawpha County, Mississippi, and are characterized by the use of many recurring characters from families of different social levels spanning more than a century. His best subjects are the old, dying South and the newer materialistic South. As I Lay Dying (1930), is a grotesquely tragicomic story about a family of poor southern whites. With Absalom, Absalom! (1936); the difficult parts of his famous short novel "The Bear" (published in Go Down, Moses, 1942); and the allegorical A Fable (1954), a non-Yoknapatawpha novel set in France during World War I; Faulkner returned to an innovative and difficult style that most readers have trouble with. Yet, interspersed among such works are collections of easily read stories originally published in popular magazines. There seems to be a growing sentiment among critics that the Snopes trilogy-The Hamlet (1940), The Town (1957), and The Mansion (1959)-for the most part an example of Faulkner's "moderate" style, could well be among his most important works. Faulkner was awarded the 1949 Nobel Prize for literature "for his powerful and artistically independent contribution to the new American novel," but it would appear now that he also deserved to win that honor for his contribution to world literature. When reporting his death, the Boston Globe quoted Faulkner's having once told an interviewer: "Since man is mortal, the only immortality for him is to leave something behind him that is immortal since it will always move. That is the artist's way of scribbling "Kilroy was here" on the wall of the final and irrevocable oblivion through which he must some day pass." In addition to the Nobel Prize, Faulkner received the Howells Medal of the American Academy of Arts and Letters in 1950, and in 1951 he was given the National Book Award for his Collected Stories Collected Stories. For his novel A Fable he received the National Book Award for the second time, as well as the Pulitzer Prize in 1955. The Reivers (1962) was awarded the Pulitzer Prize in 1963. In 1957 and 1958, he was the University of Virginia's first writer-in-residence, and in January 1959 he accepted an appointment as consultant on contemporary literature to the Alderman Library of that university. Although Faulkner was not without honors in his lifetime and has received world recognition since then, it is surprising to learn that, when Malcolm Cowley edited The Portable Faulkner in 1946, he found that almost all of Faulkner's books were out of print. By arranging selections from the works to form a continuous chronicle, Cowley deserves much of the credit for making readers aware of the way in which Faulkner was creating a fictive world on a scale grander than that of any novelist since Balzac. William Faulkner died in Oxford, Mississippi, in 1962. (Bowker Author Biography) visa färre

Kort biografi
William Cuthbert Faulkner (September 25, 1897 – July 6, 1962) was an American writer and Nobel Prize laureate from Oxford, Mississippi. Faulkner wrote novels, short stories, screenplays, poetry, essays, and a play. He is primarily known for his novels and short stories set in the fictional Yoknapatawpha County, based on Lafayette County, Mississippi, where he spent most of his life.

Faulkner is one of the most celebrated writers in American literature generally and Southern literature specifically. Though his work was published as early as 1919 and largely during the 1920s and 1930s, Faulkner's renown reached its peak upon the publication of Malcolm Cowley's The Portable Faulkner and his 1949 Nobel Prize in Literature, making him the only Mississippi-born Nobel winner. Two of his works, A Fable (1954) and his last novel The Reivers (1962), each won the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction. In 1998, the Modern Library ranked his 1929 novel The Sound and the Fury sixth on its list of the 100 best English-language novels of the 20th century; also on the list were As I Lay Dying (1930) and Light in August (1932). Absalom, Absalom! (1936) appears on similar lists.

Recensioner

En stark skildring av rasmotsättningar i den amerikanska södern under det tidiga förra seklet. Den var aktuell då men tyvärr är den lika aktuell idag. Faulkner är en stor berättare.

William Faulkners The sound and the fury är på intet sätt en lätt bok: av dess fyra delar är den första berättad av den klinisk idioten Benjamin (»Benjy«), den andra av hans i alla fall neurotiske bror Quentin, på randen till att bli självspilling, den tredje av den tredje brordern Jason, mer stabil till kynnet men också ett obehagligt, bittert, elakt självförhärligande kräk. Fjärde delen är opersonlig, och först där hålls konsekvent konventionell grammatisk struktur.

Det är heller inget trevligt skeende som berättas: egentligen för att väldigt få av personerna som uppträder är trevliga människor. De enda som möjligen skulle kunna var det har som sagt tagit livet av sig, eller försvunnit ur familjen efter att ha hamnat i olycka och försökts giftas bort innan saken skulle upptäckas. ingen nämner längre syster Candence namn, och detta är en stor del av anledningen till att Benjy är så orolig och lycklig. Resultatet av olyckan, i form av en dotter (även hon med namnet Quentin, till alla läsares glädje) har dock skickats tillbaka till familjen, och är en ständig blickpunkt för Jasons bitterhet, ett korn för var att bildas kring, en ständig påminnelse om att han förlorade den lilla chans att komma någon vart han hade när hans syster försköts (att han är sinnebilden av en moraliserande konservativ amerikan och Quentin tycks vara tonåring innan begreppet riktigt fanns hjälper inte). Allt ses också av de tjänare som de flesta i familjen föraktar eller i alla fall kör självklart med.

Det är ett högst modernistiskt verk, med fria associationsströmmar av upplöst meningsstruktur och en konstruktion som gör att den nästan måste läsas mer än en gång, så att man tydligare kan se vad Benjy reagerar på. Boken har också skildringar av ung, manlig universitetsstudent (Quentin är precis den lite bortkomne typen som studenttider brukar få skildras genom), av en högst dysfunktionell familj, av vita sydstatare med mer stolthet än skäl därtill. Är sådant i ens smak så bör boken definitivt inte missas.

Ytterligare en äldre nobelpristagare som jag tidigare inte läst. Många av dessa klassiker är fantastiska berättelser. Denna bok är inget undantag även om vissa delar i boken kändes lite sega så var den underliggande stämmningen, språket och den fantastiska berättartekniken mycket bra. jag är glad att jag plockat på mig fler av hans romaner på antikvariatet. detta blev 2010 års sista utlästa bok för min del.
