Whilst Faulkner will always be remembered for his novelistic masterpieces, he was also a master of the short story, and A Rose for Emily is sure proof of this. Since it was first printed in a newspaper in 1930, it has steadily become one of the most anthologized American short stories in history.
William Faulkner's unforgettable 1929 novel of the "rotting family in the rotting house. Mostly set in the year 1928, and in the US south in the days of segregation and prejudice (the N-word makes a frequent appearance), The Sound and the Fury has four sections plus an appendix.

William Cuthbert Faulkner (September 25, 1897 – July 6, 1962) was an American writer and Nobel Prize laureate from Oxford, Mississippi. Faulkner wrote novels, short stories, a play, poetry, essays, and screenplays. He is primarily known for his novels and short stories set in the fictional Yoknapatawpha County, based on Lafayette County, Mississippi, where he spent most of his life.

But in fact what William Faulkner is really after in his legendary novel is the kaleidoscope of consciousness-the overwrought mind caught in the act of thought. Once a bitch always a bitch, what I say," he begins, lacing into Caddy's illegitimate daughter, and then proceeds to hurl mud at blacks, Jews, his sacred Compson ancestors, his glamorous, promiscuous sister, his doomed brother Quentin, his ailing mother, and the long-suffering black servant Dilsey who holds the family together by sheer force of character.
Faulkner was awarded the 1949 Nobel Prize for literature "for his powerful and artistically independent contribution to the new American novel," but it would appear now that he also deserved to win that honor for his contribution to world literature. When reporting his death, the Boston Globe quoted Faulkner's having once told an interviewer: "Since man is mortal, the only immortality for him is to leave something behind him that is immortal since it will always move.

novel by William Faulkner, published in 1929, that details the destruction and downfall of the aristocratic Compson family from four different points of view. Faulkner’s fourth novel, The Sound and the Fury is notable for its nonlinear plot structure and its unconventional narrative style. Initial critical reactions to The Sound and the Fury were mixed. Critics generally recognized and commended the novel’s ambition and technical complexity, but they found its material base and, as one critic put it, unworthy of the enormous and complex craftsmanship expended on it.
A writer needs three things, experience, observation, and imagination – any two of which, at times any one of which – can supply the lack of the others," he declared. Perhaps Faulkner was thinking of his 1929 novel The Sound and the Fury when he said this, as it is a book that takes the reader through the same story four times, from the perspective of four different characters – at which point readers just might, with luck and perseverance, have managed to piece together the narrative.
