Volume XXVII, Number 1, Spring 2013

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.

What's New

Our current issue (Vol. 27.1) features essays detailing the power of Blues genre music in If I Forget Thee, Jerusalem; the influences of Hollywood and gaming in Knight’s Gambit; and the Southern myth shared in Faulkner’s Sanctuary and McCarthy’s Child of God. Our current issue also examines gendering in As I Lay Dying and the permeating perspectives of Quentin in The Sound and the Fury.
