Dr. Maurice Ebileeni ד"ר מוריס עבליני
Nobel Laureate William Faulkner continues to be classified among the most important writers of American letters and one of the most original authors of the 20th century. This course will focus on the period from 1929 to 1942 — the “long decade” of Faulkner’s greatest literary achievements. We will be reading from some of his major novels such as The Sound and the Fury along with a selection of his short stories. The purpose is not only to read the texts, but also to place them in the historical and cultural context of the U.S. south. This will be a class with student discussion and occasional assignments. It is therefore essential that students do not fall behind in their reading.
