Friday, November 20 : Friday, November 20 Faukner Cornell Notes from PPT “A Rose for Emily” (new book 516) Story Analysis Characterization Activity, Questions 2-4, 7 Nobel Literature Prize Speech (old book 618) Questions 1-4, Developing Skills 1 & 2 “Barn Burning” (old book 449) Story Analysis Questions 1-9 William Faulkner : William Faulkner "The writer's only responsibility is to his art.  He will be completely ruthless if he is a good one.  He has a dream.  It anguishes him so much he must get rid of it.  He has no peace until then." Slide 3: Between 1929 and 1936 Faulkner made peace with his dreams by writing novels that have since become American legends.  Set in the fictional landscape of Yoknapatawpha County, these novels explore the anguish of an American South recovering from the Civil War and slavery; confronting deep-seated racism and misogyny; and reluctantly letting go of an idealized past.  Faulkner's art ruthlessly probes the Southern psyche, bringing to light its misery as well as its beauty.  His work immerses readers in what is surely the most controversial passage of our national history. -David Southward Faulkner used long sentences : Faulkner used long sentences “to put the whole history of the human heart on the head of a pin . . . [in] an attempt to get his past and possibly his future into the [present] instant. . ." Frederick Gwynn & Joseph Blotner Faulkner in the University Death is a constant, as well: : Death is a constant, as well: "To me, " he famously said, "no man is [only] himself, he is the sum of his past. There is no such thing really as was because the past is. It is a part of every man, every woman, and every moment. . . . And so . . . a character in a story at any moment is not just himself as he is then, he is all that made him. . ." Gwynn and Blotner 84
