Textul de pe ultima copertă

In prose of biblical grandeur and feverish intensity, William Faulkner reconstructed the history of the American South as a tragic legend of courage and cruelty, gallantry and greed, futile nobility, and obscene crimes. He set this legend in a small, minutely realized parallel universe he called Yoknapatawpha County, Mississippi.
