Faulkner’s Inheritance is a collection of essays originally presented at the 32nd Annual Faulkner and Yoknapatawpha conference in July 2005. With an introduction by Joe Urgo, these essays examine the influences on Faulkner’s fiction, including his own family history, Jim Crow laws, contemporary fashion, popular culture and literature. The volume includes “Atomic Faulkner” by Priscilla Wald, “Estelle and William Faulkner’s Imaginative Collaboration (c. 1919-1925),” by Judith L. Sensibar, and “Faulkner’s Dark House: The Uncanny Inheritance of Race,” by Martin Kreiswirth.
