S20C07 Meet William FaulknerThis course will focus on the works of William Faulkner, who helped initiate the so-called Southern Literary Renaissance with the publication of classic American novels including "The Sound and the Fury", "As I Lay Dying", "Light in August", and "The Hamlet". While Faulkner was serving as writer in residence at the University of Virginia, a questioner asked him which of his novels the uninitiated reader should tackle first, to which he answered: "The Unvanquished". Students in this course will read and discuss "The Unvanquished", followed by a reading of his more sophisticated novel, "As I Lay Dying".
