William Faulkner and the Faces of Modernity

Jay Watson

  • Approaches Faulkner's literary modernism primarily as an expressive response to the cultural and material dimensions of modernity as experienced in Faulkner's Mississippi world rather than to the aesthetic or philosophical tenets of international high modernism
  • Examines several magazine stories and a number of early and 'minor' or non-canonical works—Soldiers' Pay, Flags in the Dust, Pylon, A Fable, Intruder in the Dust
  • Foregrounds rural sites and processes of modernization, and rural subjects as modernizing forces in their own right rather than passive victims or beneficiaries of modernity
