Faulkners novels were produced in the same high period as the films of classical Hollywood, a reason itself for considering his work alongside this dominant form. Beyond their era, though, Faulkners novels--or the ways in which they ask readers to see as well as feel his world--have much in common with film.

That Faulkner was aware of film and that his novels own thinking betrays his profound sense of the medium and its effects broadens the contexts in which he can be considered.In a range of approaches, the contributors consider Faulkners career as a scenarist and collaborator in Hollywood, the ways his screenplay work and the adaptations of his fiction informed his literary writing, and how Faulkners craft anticipates, intersects with, or reflects upon changes in cultural history across the lifespan of cinema.Drawing on film history, critical theory, archival studies of Faulkners screenplays and scholarship about his work in Hollywood, the nine essays show a keen awareness of literary modernism and its relation to film.
