William Faulkner and the Tangible Past

£14.99

Product description

The world of William Faulkner is seen from a new perspective in Thomas Hines's imaginative and many-faceted study. Hines assesses the impact of the built environment on Faulkner's consciousness and shows how the architecture of the writer's fictional county of Yoknapatawpha reflects the actual architecture of Oxford, Mississippi, and neighbouring areas. Over 110 distinctive photographs, in both colour and black-and-white, beautifully complement the text, making this book both a reading and viewing pleasure.

Hardback book in very good condition. Some slight shelf wear and water damage to dust jacket, and a note in pen on the page before the title page.
