Lover of the Fancy

Early C20th American culture and dissent

A Fable
William Faulkner


This novel was published in 1954 and won both the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award in 1955. An allegorical story of World War I, set in the trenches in France and dealing ostensibly with a mutiny in a French regiment, it was originally considered a sharp departure for Faulkner. Recently it has come to be recognized as one of his major works and an essential part of the Faulkner canon.
