Faulkner: The Past, the Dark, and the Form of Fiction

This panel will address a few of the issues that form and inform Faulkner’s fiction, including his fascination with family structures (his own and those of his characters), incest, and the changing South. Some presenters will explore biographical influences on Faulkner’s writing and examine his fascination with the impact of the past on the present and future, while others will offer interpretations of his extensive use of the Gothic form to treat such issues as sexuality and race.
