  • Faulkner's Short Stories


    Faulkner's Short Stories is a collection of short fiction by the famous Modernist Southern author William Faulkner. The stories are concerned mostly with life in the South during the Civil War and in the time surrounding that period. They paint a colloquial and literary portrait of Southern society and explore themes ranging from family, legacy, and class to war, slavery, isolation, and decay. The decline of the South in the wake of the war is perhaps the most relevant point.
