Description

Esta colección de cuentos es la mejor oportunidad de aproximación al universo Faulkner. Perlas de especial rareza que evocan desde el mítico territorio de Yoknapatawpha hasta la ciudad de Nueva York En agosto de 1950, dos meses antes de recibir el Premio Nobel, William Faulkner publicó esta colección de cuentos, que fue galardonada un año después con el National Book Award. Un volumen que él mismo dispuso y que obedece a la búsqueda de una armonía en la que las piezas no desentonen y se modulen como una entidad propia. Una aproximación a la crueldad, brutalidad y ternura del ser humano, una muestra más de la genialidad de William Faulkner y una perfecta puerta de acceso al universo de este maestro indiscutible de la literatura moderna norteamericana. «Faulkner indagó en las sombras con emoción y talento difícilmente comparables.» ENGLISH DESCRIPTION "I'm a failed poet. Maybe every novelist wants to write poetry first, finds he can't and then tries the short story which is the most demanding form after poetry. And failing that, only then does he take up novel writing." --William Faulkner Winner of the National Book Award Forty-two stories make up this magisterial collection by the writer who stands at the pinnacle of modern American fiction. Compressing an epic expanse of vision into hard and wounding narratives, Faulkner's stories evoke the intimate textures of place, the deep strata of history and legend, and all the fear, brutality, and tenderness of the human condition. These tales are set not only in Yoknapatawpha County, but in Beverly Hills and in France during World War I. They are populated by such characters as the Faulknerian archetypes Flem Snopes and Quentin Compson, as well as by ordinary men and women who emerge so sharply and indelibly in these pages that they dwarf the protagonists of most novels.
