Faulkner and Love

Faulkner and Love: The Women Who Shaped His Art

by Prof. Judith L. Sensibar

"We know a lot about William Faulkner''s drinking, his philandering, his struggles with race, sexuality and history. We know much less about why Faulkner was so spectacularly talented and so spectacularly troubled. Judith Sensibar''s magisterial new book tells how the fraught, obsessive relationships with the women in his life permeated every aspect of his art and life. Faulkner''s critics and biographers too often dismiss or caricature his mother, his "mammy," and his wife. But by uncovering important new information about Faulkner''s family life, and integrating it with intelligent readings of his fiction and poetry, Faulkner and Love places Maud Butler, Caroline Barr, and his wife Estelle Oldham Faulkner back where they belong at the center of his work and illuminates the obsessions that impelled him to write the greatest novels of the 20th century." - Diane Roberts, author of Dream State (Diane Roberts )
