Reviews

  • "By universal consent of critics and common readers, Faulkner is now recognised as the strongest American novelist of the century, clearly surpassing Ernest Hemingway and Scott Fitzgerald, and standing as an equal in the sequence that includes Hawthorne, Melville, Mark Twain and Henry James"

    Harold Bloom
  • "There is no writer living who can play upon a scene the rich and Rembrandtesque flame that Faulkner commands"

    Evening Standard
  • "His prose style is all his own, often sensuously alert, evocative, graceful"
