Faulkner and Material Culture


Faulkner and Material Culture is a collection of essays that provides “a fresh understanding of the things Faulkner brought from the world around him to the one he created.” Urgo also wrote the introduction of the book.

Introduction


In "Faulkner and the Passing of the Old Agrarian Culture," Charles S. Aiken surveys Faulkner’s representation of terrain and concludes, contrary to established criticism, that to Faulkner, Yoknapatawpha was not a microcosm of the South but a very particular and quite specifically located place. In other essays Katherine Henninger analyzes Faulkner’s fictional representation of photographs and the function of photography within his fiction, and Kevin Railey discusses consumer goods that appear in Flags in the Dust.
