Town, Faulkner,  William
Town
William Faulkner

Paperback / softback $33.00 - Random House USA Inc
Fiction - Published: 15/Sep/2011 - ISBN: 9780307946812

This is the second volume of Faulkner s trilogy about the Snopes family, his symbol for the grasping, destructive element in the post-bellum South. Like its predecessor, "The Hamlet," and its successor, "The Mansion, The Town" is completely self-contained, but it gains resonance from being read with the other two. The story of Flem Snopes s ruthless struggle to take over the town of Jefferson, Mississippi, the book is rich in typically Faulknerian episodes of humor and profundity."
