Here is a classic collection from one of America’s greatest authors. Though these short stories have universal appeal, they are intensely local in setting. With the exception of “Turn About,” which derives from the time of the First World War, all these tales unfold in a small town in Mississippi, William Faulkner’s birthplace and lifelong home.

Some stories—such as “A Ro...more

مجموعة قصصية رائعة لوليام فوكنر. تراوح تقييمي للقصص بين نجمتين الى خمس نجوم، وفي الاغلبية هي قصص مدهشة من ناحية الافكار و الشخصيات والاسلوب. في ثلاث قصص على الأقل كان الراوي عبارة عن طفل وكنا نسمع ونشاهد الاحداث بعيني الطفل ورغم ان هذا الطفل قد يتحدث عن الجانب الذي فهمه من الحدث لكن له جانبا آخر يتطلب شخصا بالغاً كالقاريء الذكي ليستوعبه.
المجموعة مقسمة الى قسمين، قصص تدور في الارياف وتحكي عن علاقة الاقطاعيين بمستأجري الأراضي، عن ذهاب الشباب الى الحرب واستدعاءهم للتجنيد، وقصص تدور في القرية، عن عل...more
Excelente introducción a William Faulkner. Muchos de estos cuentos son la precuela de sus novelas. Proporcionan mayor información sobre los ancestros de los personajes, como el patriarca de los Snopes para lo que después sería la trilogía "the Hamlet", "The Town"y "The Mansion"; o el perfil de la última generación de los Compson cuando eran niños, dando más información de sus acciones en "The Sound and the Fury" de las grandes sagas incluidas en "The Sound and the Fury", así como la historia de...more
It's creepy and probably something I will not remember for long, although that's supposedly Faulkner's pessimistic style. Sounded good at the beginning but then it became a bit odd, complicated, you had to start making guesses to finally end up with a creepy explanation. The good thing is it kept me busy during my hour of traveling with public transportation.
