Faulkner's Mississippi
by William Eggleston
Publisher's Description
Through the insightful, poetic writings of Willie Morris and the subtle photographs of William Eggleston--both natives of the Deep South--this book revisits the complex fictional world of William Faulkner's mythic Yoknapatawpha County, Mississippi. Eggleston's images of the rural and small town South quietly bear witness to a corner of America seemingly by-passed by history. His lyrical realism resonates with the place and time that Faulkner began memorializing over 60 years ago. Excerpts from several of Faulkner's Yoknapatawpha novels and stories accompany the photographs. Faulkner's complex fictional world of Yoknapatawpha County is revisited through the poetic mastery of Willie Morris and the photographs of William Eggleston, celebrated Southern photographer. His images of the rural Southern countryside speak eloquently of Faulkner's world. Their sometimes lurid, always lyrical realism depict bucolic scenes of the Deep South which seem to resonate with the past. Excerpts of Faulkner's works accompany many of the photographs.
