The Saddest Words: William Faulkner’s Civil War

Faulkner once famously said, “The past is not dead. In fact, it’s not even past,” and this exceptional study by Gorra lends credence to these words. A worthy addition to Faulkner studies, and for larger Southern literature and Civil War collections.

Portrait of a Novel

Gorra's detailed yet expansive examination of all factors relating to the creation and import of James's masterpiece makes this obligatory reading for James fans and scholars, though Gorra assumes a familiarity with other period writers that some James readers—such as the many college students assigned to read Portrait each year—may not have. Strongly recommended. [See Prepub Alert, 1/30/12.]
