Many of the lectures collected in this volume direct attention to the full scope and range of Faulkners fictional world, searching for, and finding, unity, harmony, and interrelationships. Some of the essays, like Ellen Douglass Faulkner in Time and James Carotherss The Road to The Reivers, examine all of Faulkners novels, seeking to uncover an overall design and meaning. Others trace the appearances, in work after work, of one theme or figure.

Among the subjects considered in this way are Faulkners women, his black characters, his heroes, his aristocrats, and his attitude toward death.Taken together, these essays implicitly acknowledge the appropriateness of metaphor of a cosmos for Faulkners fictional creation. To be fully and accurately understood, each single part of Faulkners vast system of fictional meanings, like the separate worlds in a cosmos, must be assessed in the context of the whole.
