A comprehensive collection of contemporary published reactions to the writing of William Faulkner from 1926 to 1962, these articles document the response of reviewers to specific works, and chronicle the development of Faulkner's reputation among the nation's book reviewers. It has often been assumed that a poor reception in the popular review publications contributed to Faulkner's lack of commercial success. The material presented here tends to refute that assumption, clarifying the development of Faulkner's literary career and providing a fuller understanding of the part played by book reviewing in the sales, promotion and success of American literature.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Inge has provided a most helpful introduction that interprets the major patterns of this portion of Faulkner criticism with discernment and scholarly insight. Assuming that the 'American Critical Archives' series will continue the high standard represented here, one looks forward to future installments." Richmond Times-Dispatch
"...this volume of early reactions to one of the most challenging parts of the American canon can be ignored only at the peril of losing what Hans-Georg Gadamer might call 'the horizon of expectation,' the ideas and attitudes contemporary with the creation of Faulkner's art. Every once in a while a book re-creates context so well that it becomes part of the context. Cambridge has achieved this. Undergraduates should use this significant book; all graduate students will have to." Choice
"...an excellent reference source and a handy teaching tool." Popular Culture Association in the South Newsletter
"All libraries serving serious students of literature should have these volumes." Q. Grigg, Choice
