Light in August: The Corrected Text

By William Faulkner

Read, read, read. Read everything trash, classics, good and bad, and see how they do it. Just like a carpenter who works as an apprentice and studies the master. Read! You ll absorb it. Then write. If it is good, you ll find out. If it s not, throw it out the window. William Faulkner
"Light in August," a novel about hopeful perseverance in the face of mortality, features some of Faulkner s most memorable characters: guileless, dauntless Lena Grove, in search of the father of her unborn child; Reverend Gail Hightower, who is plagued by visions of Confederate horsemen; and Joe Christmas, a desperate, enigmatic drifter consumed by his mixed ancestry."



    REVIEW QUOTES
"For all his concern with the South, Faulkner was actually seeking out the nature of man. Thus we must turn to him for that continuity of moral purpose which made for the greatness of our classics." --Ralph Ellison "From the Hardcover edition."
