Mis-fit Parents in Faulkner's Select Texts - Book Review

In today’s age of aggressive book marketing, it takes tremendous courage to pen a book like Mis-fit Parents in Faulkner’s Select Texts. Noel Polk says, “He [William Faulkner] remains elusive for us, even with umpteen volume-length biographies, several volumes of letters, and more than a zillion essays that explore various aspects of his life in his works and out of them” (“Was Not Was Not” 19). It is in light of these observations that book like Mis-fit Parents in Faulkner’s Select Texts assumes tremendous importance.

This is not for the first time that Faulkner’s writings are critically analyzed. But the overall trend of Faulknerian criticism encompasses such broad areas as race, class, gender, realism, modernism, post-modernism, feminism, post-structuralism, rhetorical and ideological theories and cultural studies. But Mis-fit Parents in Faulkner’s Select Texts discusses family relationships in his work. There is also a close proximity among Faulkner’s fictional parents and his biological parents, Maud and Murry Falkner. This makes the book even interesting.

The writing is lucid and engaging. In today’s era of Internet parenting has turned challenging. And Mis-fit Parents in Faulkner’s Select Texts will definitely help the parents in raising their children. This book is highly recommended.
