The Faulkner Journal, a peer-reviewed forum for the scholarly study of William Faulkner's life and works, is published by the University of Central Florida. The journal publishes general issues twice a year and also publishes special double issues on topics such as Faulkner and Feminisms, Faulkner the Reiver, and Faulkner and Latin America. The Faulkner Journal has on its advisory board distinguished scholars from around the country and international scholars as well.
Our current issue (Vol. 29.1) features essays accessing the characters of As I Lay Dying and the title and themes of “A Rose for Emily” through distinct analyses of linguistic patterns and structures. Included essays also explore the impact of Jethro Tull and Ralph Waldo Emerson on several Faulkner characters, invoking themes of pastoralism and the equine dialectic. The social structure of Sanctuary is also viewed through the theoretical approach of mimesis and scapegoating.
The Faulkner Journal is published by the University of Central Florida, and is affiliated with the William Faulkner Society, a society founded to encourage Faulkner scholarship in all its scope and methodological diversity.
