Faulkner's Media Romance

Julian Murphet

  • New theorization of the modern novel, exemplified by Faulkner, as an aesthetic management campaign against the disreputable and exhausted materials of romance, which refused simply to disappear
  • Meticulous close study of the major Faulkner texts bringing to light hitherto unexamined patterns of construction fom novel to novel
  • A strong rejection of the dominant tendency of biographical criticism in Faulkner studies
  • A significant contribution to the materialist understanding of literary form
