William Faulkner: A Master of Short Stories

I checked out a book called “Selected Short Stories of William Faulkner.” I had never read any of his stories before. Since last night I’ve read two: “A Rose for Emily” and “Barn Burning.” I enjoyed both, but “A Rose for Emily” is definitely my favorite. My choice for reading this one first was prefaced by my husband’s comment, “If you like Stephen King, I guarantee you’ll like this story!” That intrigued me greatly. I’ve read some of Stephen King’s short stories and a couple of his novels. Although I don’t care for some of the content in his writing, he does know how to weave a short story!

So did William Faulkner! I could kind of guess what was coming in his story of “A Rose for Emily,” but I still wanted to keep reading it. He had a way of keeping my interest going just by the choices of dialogue he used. I mean who wouldn’t want to know what exactly is going to happen when a lady goes to the drug store and says to the druggist, “I want some poison” twice?? Wow. I knew she was up to something!

If you have never checked out any of William Faulkner’s writing, and you want a few good reads, check out this book! This is the other thing I love about our library. It’s not just a great place to hang out and draw or paint. It’s loaded with all kinds of great books!

Have a wonderful day everyone. Give someone you love a big hug!! 🙂

When I began this blog I was simply going to share my writing. However, after being part of the blogging world for quite some time now, I decided to begin sharing my artwork. Patsy's Creative Corner will always have my artwork and some writing, but I also created a blog called "My Crazy Life!" in order to simply write my short autobiography and hopefully get some feedback on it as I go. However, it is a very slow project right now. You can find it here: Thanks for visiting! :)
