Go Down Moses

I've built up a considerable collection of Faulkner posts, but here is another. I really enjoyed Go Down, Moses, and have finished it since my own personal bear adventure. I have to agree with Sherry Chandler's comment on that post: Go Down Moses is my favorite Faulkner. From the hunter mysticism of "The Bear" through all of the awful history of the Beauchamp family, this is Faulkner ringing his very best changes and using his full range of literary skill. Contrary to what most people think, Faulkner could write effectively in many different styles.

I've found a few more interesting Faulkner discussions since I last posted a list.
