More About Light in August by William Faulkner
 
 
 
Overview

Selected by the Modern Library as one of the 100 best novels of all time
From the Modern Library s new set of beautifully repackaged hardcover classics by William Faulkner also available are "Snopes, As I Lay Dying, The Sound and the Fury, Absalom, Absalom , "and "Selected Short Stories"
One of William Faulkner s most admired and accessible novels, "Light in August" reveals the great American author at the height of his powers. Lena Grove s resolute search for the father of her unborn child begets a rich, poignant, and ultimately hopeful story of perseverance in the face of mortality. It also acquaints us with several of Faulkner s most unforgettable characters, including the Reverend Gail Hightower, plagued by visions of Confederate horsemen, and Joe Christmas, a ragged, itinerant soul obsessed with his mixed-race ancestry. Powerfully entwining these characters stories, "Light in August" brings to life Faulkner s imaginary South, one of literature s great invented landscapes, in all of its unerringly fascinating glory. Along with a new Foreword by C. E. Morgan, this edition reproduces the corrected text of "Light in August" as established in 1985 by Faulkner expert Noel Polk."
