This course will examine and discuss William Faulkner’s powerful 1932 novel, Light in August. Through the intertwined stories of Lena Grove, Reverend Gail Hightower, and Joe Christmas, Faulkner has written a brilliant novel that wrestles with questions of race, gender, memory, and how we live in the reverberations of history. In this novel, Faulkner writes, “memory believes before knowing remembers.” We will spend this class analyzing, exploring, and trying to figure out what this means. This course is for all interested readers, whether you’ve read Faulkner myriad times or are brand new to his work.
