Here is a classic collection from one of America’s greatest authors. With a Foreword by the author.

Here is a classic collection from one of America’s greatest authors. Though these short stories have universal appeal, they are intensely local in setting. Maybe every novelist wants to write poetry first, finds he can’t and then tries the short story which is the most demanding form after poetry. And failing that, only then does he take up novel writing. Winner of the National Book Award.

Collected Stories of William Faulkner is a short story collection by William Faulkner published by Random House in 1950. It won the National Book Award for Fiction in 1951. The publication of this collection of 42 stories was authorized and supervised by Faulkner himself, who came up with the themed section headings.

  • Overall, I enjoyed these stories myself. I think these mostly take place around mid-20th century or a bit earlier, but the way they are written kind of makes them almost timeless. I did find that there were places where I had to "push on through" or read faster and try to grasp the meaning of what was being said from context instead of focusing on individual words; the Irish way of phrasing things sometimes has to be skipped through until you "get the lilt" of the writing.

    This is a very long book with a huge number of stories, so obviously every one of them will not be to a particular reader's taste. That being said, I think the collection taken as a whole is excellent. Sometimes a story will just be a character sketch and nothing much seems to "happen," while other times there is actually a surprise ending. Some are sad, some are instructive, others just ARE. I read a lot of these when I had an odd spare hour, or at bedtime, and most of them were perfect in length for that. I saved these for times when I knew I wouldn't have a lot of time to read.

  • This is a marvelous collection of stories. If you have any affinity for things Irish you will be greatly impressed. Try them some evening before the fire with a glass of Jameson's and you'll smell the peat burning.

  • I haven't read but 5 or 6 of these stories as yet but this morning after finishing the story called OLDFASHIONED I went into the internet and ordered two novels by himself. He is an absolute wonderful story teller. Knocked sideways by just the decency of his approach .

  • How can I rate Faulkner? Only by saying that he is one of the really great ones [up there with Steinbeck, Harper Lee, Tennesee Williams, Arthur Miller and Philip Roth, and that is as good as it ever gets]. He describes the Southern zeitgeist of his time better than anyone. His stories [and novels] breathe a life of their own: they are funny, compassionate, macabre, tragic, touching, sometimes violent but always totally on target - in your mind's eye you can actually not only see but almost smell and touch the Deep South. Ever since my first introduction to Faulkner [in high school] I've been an ardent fan, and I have almost all of his books! Pity Amazon allows me only five stars!

  • Nothing better than Faulkner. Faulkner is the greatest. My only problem is wanting to read the sentences over and over for their beauty, vividness, and character revelations. Gripping, fun, humorous, deep, true to the times, thought-provoking in the most honest way.

  • Thank you!!! Perfect condition!!!

  • If you just take the opening sentence or paragraph of one of Faulkner's stories, you'll learn from a master how to lace the intro with powerful words, conflict and a hook that keeps you reading.

  • A must have collection for any Southern personal library
