Abstract (summary)

William Faulkner stands as one of America's outstanding writers. Though he is often categorized as a regional author, since his works encompass the rural South, Faulkner's ideas are universal. His major themes, which center around the problems facing the degeneracy of his beloved homeland, are brought into strong universal perspective by his use of imagery and symbolism. I will explore some of these images in detail in order to show th interrelationship of Faulkner's style, technique, and literary message.

I have selected six major short stories, “A Rose for Emily,” “Dry September,” “Pantaloon in Black,” “That Evening Sun,” “Old Man,” and “The Bear”—the latter two being classified either as long short stories or novellas—and five novels, As I Lay Dying, The Hamlet, Light in August, Sanctuary , and The Sound and The Fury, in order to examine Faulkner's imagistic techniques. (Abstract shortened by UMI.)
