Snopes: A Trilogy (Snopes Trilogy) by George Garrett,William Faulkner



He died on July 6, 1962, in Byhalia, Mississippi. His work in all these forms has evoked serious and favorable critical reception.

Here, published in a single volume as Faulkner always hoped they would be, are the three novels that comprise the famous Snopes trilogy, a saga that stands as perhaps the greatest feat of Faulkner’s imagination. The Hamlet, the first book of the series chronicling the advent and rise of the grasping Snopes family in mythical Yoknapatawpha County, is a work that Cleanth Brooks called one of the richest novels in the Faulkner canon. It recounts how the wily, cunning Flem Snopes dominates the rural community of Frenchman’s Bend-and claims the voluptuous Eula Varner as his bride.

William Faulkner Selected Short Stories. Snopes By William Faulkner Introduction by George Garrett. As I Lay Dying By William Faulkner Foreword by . Absalom, Absalom!br, By William Faulkner Foreword by John Jeremiah Sullivan. These writers are in agreement that Faulkner is one of this country’s literary giants. Garrett lauds the rich variety of Faulkner’s method, his endlessly inventive ways and means of telling stories. But amid all this praise for Faulkner, there are occasional hints of unease. Faulkner’s artistry is described with modifiers like radical, demanding and overreaching.

The Hamlet, the first book of the series chronicling the advent and rise of the grasping Snopes family in mythical Yoknapatawpha County, is a work that Cleanth Brooks called “one of the richest novels in the Faulkner canon.” It recounts how the wily, cunning Flem Snopes dominates the rural community of Frenchman’s Bend—and claims the voluptuous Eula Varner as his bride. The Town, the central novel, records Flem’s ruthless struggle to take over the county seat of Jefferson, Mississippi. Finally, The Mansion tells of Mink Snopes, whose archaic sense of honor brings about the downfall of his cousin Flem. “For all his concerns with the South, Faulkner was actually seeking out the nature of man,” noted Ralph Ellison. “Thus we must turn to him for that continuity of moral purpose which made for the greatness of our classics.”

So far I have read The Hamlet, one of the three books in this collection about the manipulative Snopes family. It consists of shrewd methods the Snopes use to gain control of the "village" , or hamlet. There is a little too much conversation at the local village store, but it is Faulkner's method of advancing the plot and tying together the various episodes. Several sections stand out in my mind: The "professors" of the one-room school for all ages who tend to disappear when one of the Varners' ususually sexy daughters begins school, not walking anywhere she doesn't have to, and that is most of the time. The professors become so distracted by the girl's nearness that they eventually vanish before they succumb to her overwhelming enticements. Another episode that stands out is the wild, raucous wild-horse auction. This segment becomes hilarious and chaotic when the horses escape from their confinement and the successful bidders spend a feverish night rounding up their won prizes. A third episode relates a yarn about how Flem Snopes, the original, plays a trick on the hamlet's residents. While two catch on to the ruse, one of the horse buyers whose leg is broken when the auctioned-off horses escape in the earlier episode continues to believe that a large treasure of money is buried somewhere on hamlet property. He becomes so deranged and claims his special "hole" to dig in for the treasure, even when others have already caught on to Snopes trickery. The old man drives away anyone who comes near his claimed "hole", and a lot of locals make excursions expressly to watch the "show". The central point of this first of three books about how the Snopes build and control a town focuses on the village stage about a place called Frenchman's Bend. As in other works by Faulkner the reader has to like the challenge of his unconventional, convoluted style. I do.

I can not explain my love of Faulkner. I just do, love him! Ever since I read his magnificent short story, Barn Burning, in one of my college literature class; I've had, what you might call, a passion for Faulkner. Barn Burning was not only my introduction to Faulkner as a whole, but it also served as an introduction to one of Faulkner most fascinating characters, Flem Snopes. The Snopes Trilogy, which consists of the Faulkner novels: The Hamlet, The Town, and The Mansion; centers around Flem Snopes as he fulfills his quest of taking over the world...literally. In placing Flem Snopes as the sun of Yoknapatawpha County universe. And in doing so, Faulkner displayed the full spectrum of humanity.

The characters are not only fully developed; they are downright interesting, with Flem Snopes being downright fascinating. I'm just a layman, but I can not put my finger on why Flem Snopes is the star of these three novels. If you add all of the words Flem Snopes speaks, or is an active participant in a conversation throughout the three books, the word count would not be more than 100 words, if that. The characters in the books all react to what Flem Snopes done, might do; said, could have said, or what he will say in the future. By presenting the three novels together in one volume, the intoxicating presence of Flem Snopes is at its maximum potency. Not just Flem, but the entire Snopes clan. I have to admit I was enthralled with the Snopes, but then the more low-rent, trifling the behavior, the more I love reading about them, and there is no family more low-rent and trifling than the Snopes. You'll read about Mink, who plays an essential role in the novels, to Montgomery Ward Snopes, Wallstreet Crash Snopes to Ike Snopes, who falls in love (and I mean LOVE) with a cow.

The trilogy, the Snopes, should be one of Faulkner's greatest invention.

If you have already read some Faulkner and can feel comfortable with his unique writing style and are familiar with some of his intriguing characters this trilogy will hold your interest from its beginning to end.

Faulkner's setting is his most important character. The humans he depicts simply reflect it. All goes well for this reader until he introduces and reintroduces internal monologue from a developmentally disabled character. He also does this in The Sound and the Fury. The concept is good, but repetitive and too long dwelt upon. I lost patience.

It goes without saying that these three novels are modern classics and well worth reading. I was tremendously excited when they finally became available for Kindle -- and at a very reasonable price! But eBook formatting, even from major publishers and on outrageously priced items, often leaves a lot to be desired -- how does the Snopes trilogy stack up?

I'm happy to say that it really couldn't be better! The book opens to a thoughtful critical essay. There are book marks set for the start of each of the three novels, plus the author bio at the end. Each novel also has its own linked table of contents. The digital conversion, as far as I have read since downloading last night, has been flawless, with no typos, odd spacing, or other glitches.

The bottom line is that this is what every eBook should look like, and the presentation great literature deserves.

Edit -- I am now about halfway through The Mansion and must report that this edition does contain some typos/conversion errors. They are few and far between, and don't ruin the reading experience, but they are there. The books themselves are even better (and funnier!) than I had remembered.

I am so pleased that Faulkner finally is available in Kindle editions and this is the "must have" among them. The Snopes trilogy is the definitive Yoknapatawpha County experience. All history and relationships are at a minimum alluded to and many of the full-stories emerge resplendent in humor, bathos, and pathos. I've read it twice in print and this is my third immersion. The only other books that receive this kind of attention - regular revisitation - from me are Tolkien's trilogy and Charles Dickens' "Our Mutual Friend."
