Faulkner the Cannibal: Digesting Conrad


In this section of the volume, Faulkner is placed in juxtaposition with various modern and contemporary authors. "Faulkner the Cannibal: Digesting Conrad" explores two of Faulkner's early short stories as well as the Haitian episode in Absalom, Absalom! to reveal the African "Orientalism" that Faulkner appropriated from Joseph Conrad. This places Faulkner in a postcolonial and global south studies perspective.
Dans cette partie du volume, Faulkner est confronté à ses contemporains modernistes. "Faulkner the Cannibal: Digesting Conrad" explore deux nouvelles de jeunesse de Faulkner ainsi que l'"épisode haïtien" d'Absalom, Absalom!, en soulignant la dette à Conrad dont Faulkner adapte l'"orientalisme" africain. La perspective est postcoloniale, dans la lignée des études sur le "Global South".
