ABSTRACT
The article describes the book "William Faulkner: A Critical Study," by Irwing Howe. The critical study has some of the characteristics of pioneering--an occasional roughness, tentativeness and uncertainty of direction. The author discusses about three kind of critics on Faulkner. One who underestimate him due to his obscurity. Others who are overtended to cover his work with virtually Ptolemaic cycles and epicycles of symbolism and explication. And the third group of critics represented by Howe, is described the best that works carefully, aware of the difficulty of evaluating a writer whose fiction is still appearing, and the impression of which may not yet be clear.
